Subject:   Digital Security Survey

Dear Colleagues -


Another excellent survey from The Economist's current issue, this
one on digital security. Frequently quoted is cyber guru Bruce
Schneier, who was the subject of earlier EAS-INFO mailings, e.g.
<http://www.yale.edu/engineering/eng-info/msg00914.html>. He has
always stressed the point that security is as dependent on human
frailties and their management, as on security technology. My
favorite quote in this vein in the survey: "Amateurs hack systems,
professionals hack people."
