One of the things I try to reinforce when I teach security is that you cannot know everything about security. I just got hit with a ton of bricks. I used to follow web app firewalls closely. Ryan Barnett, Breach, and I used to stay in touch on the subject, in fact he helped us at SANS a long time ago.
Jim Manico, OWASP, (a fellow Kauaiian), and I try to stay in touch and I run things by him. But today, I got a press release saying for the third year in a row Imperva is the sole member of the GMQ for web app firewalls. Perhaps you remember the "Duh" scene in Air America when the US senator tries to give the local general his bag to carry. That is how I feel. But it is time to recover. Hopefully, Imperva has done a What Works piece so I can begin to get back in the game from a user's perspective. Maybe, I can do one or two short Linkedin interview, (3 - 5 questions), posts. But clearly, I have been slacking in this area.
