    The network, in my mind’s eye, feels like a complex labyrinth with winding passages leading to opened and closed ports and firewalls exploding. Interestingly, when I did a little Google search to make sure I had my Greek mythology correct, I stumbled across this nugget of wisdom.

    In reference to Ovid’s Metamorphoses, and the labyrinth built by Daedalus, Wikipedia warns, “This story thus encourages others to consider the long-term consequences of their own inventions with great care, lest those inventions do more harm than good.”

    From what I hear, the myriad of security tools that elicit alerts of potential threats can sometimes do just that. Because IT folks are “inundated” and “barraged” with alerts, they stop paying attention to them all together. The result is exactly then the same consequence of an invention doing more harm than good. Whether that perception is true or false is up for debate.
