Pointer to a great paper on economics and security

Dana Epp’s ramblings at the Sanctuary : Economics of Information Security
Dana has a link from a link on Axel’s blog to a great article about Security and economics by Ross Anderson(Gee blogging gets a bit overly linked at times :op)…
As with a lot of Ross Andersons writings it’s very thought provoking, with many interesting ideas in it. A recommended read even if you’re not into InfoSec as it provides one possible explanation for things like why Microsoft dominates certain computing markets….
One of the many interesting ideas in it was an analysis of why even the best funded security team can fall foul of a relatively poorly funded attacked in the computing world (starts on Page 4)
