Securing the ‘Net – at what price?
Is it possible to secure the Internet? And if so, what would it cost?
According to Jim Manico, a global board member of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Foundation, it is. And he suggested a price of $4 billion, in a recent “open letter” to President Obama.
Manico said if the government would write him a check for that amount, “or any amount of money deemed enough to instigate change – I’ll show you how to help secure the software that drives modern businesses and the Internet at large.”
