The Rules for Secure Operations
These are not mine, this is a compilation of knowledge over years of experience and study. Mistakes have been made and sometimes we learn the hard way. I am attempting to help so that you don't have to take the same path. Some of these are self evident but still are of note. This will be a multi-part series, as there will be many rules to learn from, as there have been many lessons. ABC. Always Be Careful.
Rule 25: Don’t spend time trying to move your opponent, just move yourself.
Rule 26: The time to take counsel of your fears is before you make an important battle decision. That’s the time to listen to every fear you can imagine! When you have collected all the facts and fears and made your decision, turn off all your fears and go ahead! (Patton)
Rule 27: The more sophisticated the technology the more vulnerable it is to primitive attacks. People often overlook the obvious.
Rule 28: If you’re happy with your security, so are the bad guys.
Rule 29: Security won’t work if there are too many different security measures to manage, and/or they are too complicated or hard to use. (Colsch’s - Keep It Simple - Maxim). See Rule 7.

Rule 31: Always be surrounded by the right people.
Rule 32: Always provide correction in private and praise in public.
