NICE Security Site

You really need to add this to y0ur stack of security web links:  http://enisa.europa.eu/

Everyday I'm called on to provide a 2 second evaluation of the security of some mystery meat technology.  I like nvd.nist.gov:  http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/search;jsessionid=3150e76173feb02a70660eec0334?execution=e1s1 .  Who doesn't need a searchable database of CVE and CCE problems for most technologies out there? 

But it's 'American', I'm told by a few.  You see, there's this idea that unless a site is global, it is biased in some way.  That's why I like to get out amongst the world security sources and read up on the good stuff--that is if your life is as narrowly defined that you think reading up on security issues is 'The Good Stuff'.

Go out to http://enisa.europa.eu/.  It is the Nexus of Europe's security efforts (maybe, A nexus?).  Alongside the great information on awareness strategies, you'll see some impressive security documents.  In multiple languages beyond English, something worth distributing to International security peers.  I personally like these because it helps me learn German, something I've attempted learning for more than 30 years.  So I learn German and the German of my professional vocabulary...

And among those documents, you'll find this one:  http://www.enisa.europa.eu/doc/pdf/publications/enisa_quarterly_03_07.pdf .  This document begins predicting the SCADA INsecurity issues.  You'll also read about the growing automation of one's home appliances and the like, something I've tried to discuss. 

In short, as security issues become international threats, web sites like this help you stay current.  So go ahead!  Go out and download a few pdf's of The Good Stuff.
