Basically, our dilemma is not unique, and at least our efforts are measurable in both tangible and non-tangible results. Any time we get down in the dumps about security, it is because we have poor goals and measurements. Are we making a difference? Should we change our name to make it better? Do we expect to eradicate insecurity, information loss, and protect our systems ultimately otherwise we are failures? Do we worry that our jobs stem from other people’s loss or suffering, or do we realize we are helping people deal with the inevitable? Inevitable: human mistakes, bad morals, economic choices [budgets], education to not make poor decisions, etc…these are our combatants, not pain and suffering.
