Credibiltiy and Inegrity AtStake

In a shocking display of how to spectacularly cave in to the Borg, security consulting Firm AtStake has fired one of the authors of a white paper that recently criticized the over-dependence on Microsoft technology as a national security risk. If a supposed security consultancy is going to be partisan and suppress valid opinions because they are not in line with party doctrine, then this is quite a blow to the credibility and integrity of the larger security industry. This sector can’t afford to be seen as turning a blind eye to real issues because they are unfavorable to their benefactors. Because when that happen, how can you really trust that they are telling you the truth?
