In honor of the big breach this week, I went through the archives looking for an image of a castle in ruins. Couldn’t have found a more apropos image than this one of Castle Urquhart and Loch Ness. There be monsters here!
Much of our security infrastructure is based on building a controlled perimeter, much as the engineers of Urquhart did on the shoreline. That’s important for sure, but what happens once your walls are breached, the bad guys are inside? Are you only relying moats and castles to protect your critical assets, or do you have watchtowers, patrols, and a garrison stationed inside, ready to respond?
Something to think about when the monsters come.
