Best practices meets the real world!

Mark Rasch has a nice article showing why Tom Ridge's comments about additional disclosure don't hold water: Disclosure Plan Won't Help. His argument is that companies are suppose to disclose past and present risks to themselves and they don't. He also points out that the sum total of 4 viruses (Nimda, Code Red, Mafiaboy DDOS, and Melissa) cost U.S. businesses almost $5 billion dollars in losses yet on their required disclosures to the SEC none of this money was stated. Interesting comments, and good material to attack the real costs of these viruses (clearly not as much as stated by the media).
