Security & Hacking: Facebook's Computer Emergency Response Team

Very cool story IMO http://arstechnica.com/security/2013/02/at-facebook-zero-day-exploits-backdoor-code-bring-war-games-drill-to-life/

Note FBI connection.

I think software companies, online businesses, etc should use Red Teams a lot more than they seem to do now.

I think people should also think about the connection to Red Team type exercises and gaming, really the same basic principle or concept at the core.

Your testing yourself against a real opponent, and pushing yourself to improve, a very necessary step if you want more than mediocre performance regardless of the field involved.

A big part of management, is understanding motivation, and applying that understanding to benefit the performance of your company.

Pay is a factor, but for most people, pay isn't the biggest factor, you need to pay people enough, but after that requirement is met, things like Task Significance, Autonomy, Feedback, being Appreciated, and so forth.


If your not familiar with this, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Job_satisfaction is a good place to start.
