Well, I think the consensus was just handed to you in the form of a national
mandate. In fact, I think this looks like an excellent premise for
a business plan for a security consulting and managed services firm.
Thing is, if this does turn out to be a big win for them, I
figure they'll actually do what is right and not what the government
Maybe that's why they probably won't be the real "winners" out of this.
Anyone want to make any guesses as to who's going to be the
Microsoft of US Government-mandated computer security? Hmmm....
Maybe Microsoft? Why not? They bought the government to begin with
and the top computer security guy in the administration used to work
for them, so it only makes sense that they would reap the windfall.
