The writing is on the wall

We need to stop kidding ourselves that we can "secure" these cloud platforms and Internet facing applications. What we fix today is broken tomorrow and we may notice it next year.

I know there's a lot of money to be made pretending that "security" can be purchased/guaranteed and it's an easy sale for all the big database companies but - let's face it - random sex with strangers is safer than putting your corporate bawls out for anyone to examine and fiddle with even if the vendor tells you "it's safe" ... what they really mean is that your money is in their safe - and on its way to the Virgin Islands via Ireland.
