  2. Thinking because you have a VPN portal it’s secure.
  3. Thinking your a IDS isn’t based on variables on the past, and can predict the future.
  4. Thinking you won’t be chasing your tail over and over on false positives, and will not become jaded.
  5. Thinking there is such a thing as a silver bullet security product.
  6. Thinking you can actually block an entire country, and not have repercussions when you do.
  7. Thinking your security environment is “set it and forget it”.
  8. Thinking your firewall can do it all.
  9. Thinking you are not in security information overload.
  10. Thinking you’re secure!
