Obtaining security
Your highest goal cant be cutting costs. It has to be providing security. Ask what can be done to improve security rather than what needs to be done to satisfy management. Certifications, test driven development, and automated tools can destroy security unless you understand that they are the starting point, not the finish line. I knew a manager who fired people who found bugs because he didnt want to admit his unit might be at fault. You need people who appear obsessive about security, but it just means theyre realistic. Most incentive programs actually encourage insecurity.
