With the holiday weekend upon us, I thought I'd share a link to fun little IT security send up of "The Night Before Christmas" from SecurityWeek called "The Night Before Christmas in the Shoes of an IT Security Professional".

Here a short excerpt:

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The data was all safe, protected with care,
In hopes that year-end bonuses soon would be there.

The servers were nestled all safe in their racks
Protected from malware and vile forms of hacks.
The data all encrypted, with a nice complex key,
The software came, of course, with a great big huge fee.

The full post is a fun read for IT and Infosec Professionals, check it out here.

Have a safe and happy holiday!
