SANS - Survey on application security programs

A document with a foreword written by Andrew Grove, president of Intel, has specifically targeted UK journalists for criticism. Today, Register journalists were shown a document called Working with the European Press which outlined Intel's ideas about the whole of Europe, including Israel and South Africa. But the document journalists saw was particularly damning about UK journalists. Six bullet points outlined Intel's thoughts about UK hacks. Said the document: "Journalists are cynical in the extreme. Be clear and firm about your arguments. The British dislike the Goliath's (sic) of this world and always support the underdog. Each sentence is carefully monitored in or out of context for quoteworthiness. Never be negative about anyone or anything, never go 'off the record', Be discrete (sic) in tone and volume, and especially about picking up the check/bill, Praise local customers, local innovation." Further, the document we saw quoted the famous Guardian journalist James Cameron. That quote is: "It was long ago in my life as a simple UK reporter that I decided that facts must never get in the way of truth." The document we saw covered many European countries, including Hungary, Spain and Holland but there was no copyright notice, tempting us to think it a public document about press. ®
