johannesullrich.gif “Teaching network security for the SANS Institute, I am frequently asked, “Will our networks ever be secure and safe for all to use?” My simple answer is: No. We will never be able to achieve total network security. I tend to use real “doors” as an analogy to make my point. Doors have been built and refined for thousands of years. Nevertheless, burglaries occur daily, even though we know how to build safe, burglar-proof doors.”
