Live Incident Map

I think this is fascinating: a map depicting naval piracy.



One of the most interesting aspects of this map is that it concerns commercial entities (i.e. ships carrying cargo) and anyone can quickly learn the fate of each vessel. It's a giant incident map for 2008. Previous years (2007, 2006) are also available.

The closest equivalent for digital security is probably the narrative of the Breach Blog and similar sites.

Only when we can openly talk about this problem and share lessons learned can we improve. We still need a National Digital Security Board.

Note to self: When I retire to life on a sail boat, stay away from the equator and invest in a dozen or so RGM-84's.

Check out the OSF Data Loss Database as well. Similar narrative format to the Breach Blog.
