The Right Way to Establish a Culture of Security

After reading this article, my hat is off to Yahoo's Arturo Bejar. Not only does he have the worlds coolest job title ("Chief Paranoid Yahoo"), but he's taken some extremely creative measures to help build a pervasive culture of security at the Internet behemoth. I especially like the part about the t-shirts, since it not only gives people a reward to strive for, but they are also free advertising for the program. And the multiple tiers sounds like it would really spur some competition to get those coveted red shirts.

As someone who has been called a raving paranoiac himself, I really appreciated this approach. There are some great lessons in that article.
