OpSec and InfoSec

20 Jul 2023

From my personal experience it seems that society is starting to unravel and a whole bunch of our fellow men are going feral. Time to review Operational Security (OpSec) and Information Security (InfoSec) procedures.

OpSec: shut up

Basic Operational Security: inform those who need to know. Burglars love it when people tell the world about their upcoming vacation. Tell people after you get back not before.

No surplus words or unnecessary actions.

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 3.5

InfoSec: lock your doors

Information Security means protecting data from access.

The only safe place to keep damaging letters is in the fireplace, between burning logs.

Judith Martin, Miss Manners’ Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior, 1983
