Kung Fu Panda

This Hollywood Security lesson is a spoiler.

The Scenario
The main character Po, upon completing his martial arts training is allowed to read the contents of a treasured scroll. This scroll is suppose to contain secrets to allow him to be the unstoppable Dragon Warrior. When he opens the scroll to his amazement the scroll is blank.

The Lesson
Security Professionals and Organizations constantly look for silver bullets when it comes to information assurance. Many are obsessed with certifications or the next hot security tool. Sure we need training and tools for information warfare just as the Po learned his craft. Most importantly we need to have confidence, skill, resources, and knowledge to prevail when challenges arise. The Dragon Warrior is already inside of us.
