Monthly ITsec Leadership Quotes and Articles

I'm getting more and more convinced that the leadership style of Bruce Schneier is what made him so popular. There is more of personality than leadership in his case. In fact, my way to answer about "the mixture of security and feelings" is very close to his. Two examples:

A few quotes heard at the 4th International Forum on Cybercriminality :
  • "Nowadays you learn more about someone from Facebook than from Edvige." (Edvige is a nominative information file used by the French police.)
  • "The problem is not adapting to the digital world, it's adapting to the border-less world."
  • "In healthcare, IT security is a deontological requirement."
  • "Estonia is ahead of us [ahead of France regarding ITsec]."

Oh, by the way, I finally got a hint on why do they all emphasize on "Information Security" rather than "IT Security": I think it's because they want people to understand that it's not an IT-only problematic.
