    With regards to security, ARM needs to ensure their clients see this as an added layer, not some silver bullet.

    It's so often the case where people accept deficiencies in their own security because they assume the next team along is doing a good job and so it won't matter. Especially if they don't understand the technicalities of the other team's job.

    "It doesn't matter if we're using Internet Explorer or databases vulnerable to SQL injection or machines that run Windows XP and have a webcam in secure areas.... the firewall will protect all".

    EDIT: Missed opportunity - "Realm Manager"???? Surely "Lord of the Realm" would have been the obvious choice? I hope it's referred to in software as MyLord.

    In this woke world supporting the male patriarchy in your computer software might cause people to start throwing arm logos in the river.

    I would do a LOL here, but really the current state of the world and the minds of many people in the world, the future is indeed a bleak one.

    Not ARM's responsibility IMHO
    It's so often the case where people accept deficiencies in their own security because they assume the next team along is doing a good job and so it won't matter. Especially if they don't understand the technicalities of the other team's job.

    "It doesn't matter if we're using Internet Explorer or databases vulnerable to SQL injection or machines that run Windows XP and have a webcam in secure areas.... the firewall will protect all".
    Human nature. Humans are lazy and stupid. The path of least resistance will always be chosen. A good security team will do their best to make secure by design* the path of least resistance.

    However many security teams are simply the department of "no cant do that, SECURITY!" rather than trying to help the business along its security journey. So the other teams simply find ways to circumvent security to get their jobs done.


    *This covers all of the sub areas such as defence in depth/zero trust etc and should even include how to maintain that security operationally.
