ode to the ciso

Cutaway posits, “Why is it that we have not seen college, high school, or any other school close their doors because of security breaches or just plain being totally owned?”

I’m not going to answer that, but I will say that this is my new ode to ousted CISO/CIOs who lose their positions due to a stupid security breach:

laugh and the world laughs with you,
weep and you weep alone,
for the sad old company must keep hold it’s money
but still has security troubles on its own

This is adapted from a wonderful poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox called Solitude. (If you like that poem, I highly suggest browsing her other works…)
