Ben Rothke writes a great article that ties in addiction and information Insecurity, thats IN-security. Face it, you may be an addict. You might have an addiction to something like sugar, nicotine, alcohol, sex, gambling, addicted emotionally to another person , or even carbohydrates. Try not eating a baked flour based food for a few days and you’ll go through withdrawals. Ben states, and we all know that addictive activities produce beta-endorphins in the brain, which gives the person a feeling of being high. In this piece it seems that high is being connected to being lazy and taking the easy road. I think he makes the correlation.
At times we do take “pleasure” in in-action. We get a moment of “high” a sense of “relief”, and that is the beta-endorphins in the brain giving you a high five for in-action. But like any addiction it will eventually hurt you in one way or another.
We have been addicted to in-action. And we are fat and lazy and losing to the criminal hackers.
I often encounter people who just cant seem to get anything done. They are all addicted to in-action. And I see it in their personality’s in other areas of their lives. Organizations have to be responsible to not promote a culture of in-action addicts.
They must address security purely and organically with no additives or chemicals. They must systematically address each aspect of insecurity and execute strategic processes to avoid getting hit.
Consider criminal hackers disciplined, lean mean fighting machines that have no addictions (appease me) and thats what we are up against.
