Information security professionals should be steering clear of making any assumptions as it pertains to their core responsibilities within the organisation. Getting into the habit of making too many could result in losing their jobs altogether.
If you need some examples of what some of these assumptions could be, you’ll want to tune into Ed Moyle and Raef Meeuwisse’s previous DeMISTIfying Security episode, where they discuss the top three dangerous security assumptions.
“It’s not the end of the world if there’s something you don’t know,” Moyle says of assumptions in the latest episode. “You shouldn’t be afraid of things that are new. Even if you’re not super [knowledgable] in an area…common sense principles still apply.”
To illustrate this, in this follow-up video the guys discuss two recent containerisation-related issues and how the modern-day security warrior can venture into the unknown to effectively tackle challenges such as this.
