Those are all good ideas, sadly I say SADLY in the real world IT
professionals would starve, years ago, clients understood the importance,
today different story. No one wants to spend money for INTANGIBLE service as
of the past few years. Sure, they all will say OH yes security is very
important, however when it comes to performing that service the clients are
MIA. As I said that's the real world today whereby everyone is an expert and
no one has any real skill set to make a decision that merits. With the cloud
BS on the rise, you will see a further decline, only the very elite and very
gifted will serve the data farms/clouds. Five years from now, the trend
will be why put all your eggs in one basket let alone with everyone else
empirical data. IT "aint" what it used to be sadly, too many decision makers
that lack competence to make good decisions, where once IT person had clout,
in summation today everyone is an expert and no one knows a dam thing. Lets
hope it changes, great ideas, but focus on what put food on the table to
stay in this crazy industry where you have incompetent IT technical writers
writing BS articles and making more than the engineer.

Subject: Firewall Patching - Best Paractices

Hi All,

I'm looking for opinion for what are the industry's best paractice for
managing the upgrdae/patches to the firewalls. I'm devloping a process to
have the firewall updated/checked for patches regulary but looking for
opinion how other folks are doing it. My ideas are following:

- A mailing list for the company with all InfoSec community part of it and
then subscripte that list for updates from Cisco, Checkpoint.
* for Cisco, I've found the lists but for Checkpoint I couldn't figure out
where to subscribe.

- Infosec reffers the update/patch to the network teams and they consider
the risk factor and asses if the patch needs to be immediately applied for
at some regular cycle.

thanks,
P
