Chulos e outros animais da savana

Acabei de ler uma proposta para estabelecer a definição de Investigador de Segurança, uma proposta da Verizon Business, e não resisti a partilhar por aqui. Dizem eles [na versão original porque não há tempo para traduções]:

Have you ever heard of a terrorist referred to as a “demolition engineer?” How about a thief as a “locksmith?” No? Well, that’s because most fields don’t share the InfoSec industry’s ridiculous yet long-standing inability to distinguish the good guys from the bad guys (...) We at Verizon Risk Intelligence do hereby adopt and resolve to faithfully use the following definitions:

  • Security Researcher. One who studies how to secure things and/or how things are not secure in order to find a solution;
  • Security Practitioner. One who applies the findings of the Security Researcher in order to make things more secure;
  • Narcissistic Vulnerability Pimp. One who — solely for the purpose of self-glorification and self-gratification — harms business and society by irresponsibly disclosing information that makes things less secure; and
  • Criminal. Everyone else. One who actively subverts security or deliberately creates ways for others to do so.

in Redefining “Security Researcher”.

Tem um travozinho ligeiro, muito subtil, a gajo que 'tá ressabiado... mas não deixa de ter a sua piada : )
