There are many advantages to being first, especially in the business world. Securing a first place finish usually rewards the winner with monopoly-like status and securing the largest and most dominant market share. A byproduct, however, of the winner takes all mentality is sacrificing security. That’s what Thomas Dullien, Google Project Zero presenter suggested in his latest presentation on the relationship between complexity and failure of security. He is onto something because we’re seeing strange incidents occur that we would have never imagined. A Melbourne man got shot because his image in Google’s database is associated with criminals. A contractor’s access passes were revoked because his direct manager didn’t perform his entitlement reviews. What’s going on?
