It came up during a very nonserious discussion in the DARPA INFOSEC office, soon after we'd started. We were discussing taxonomy, and how certain words should be added to the language, because there was a need for them, or because people (usually users) got the correct terms wrong anyway. I am not sure who came up with it, but "securityzed" was invented (along with "vampiritic" and "shittiful," but those deserve websites of their own).


securityzed (seh-cure-uh-tized):  making something secure; securing a thing (past tense)

ex: "Hey, is our company protected from cyberhackers? What about the mainframe?"
"Oh, no worries, boss-- we securityzed it."

I'll use this site to post irregular commentary about the security industry, IT, training, maybe some politics, and possibly food (because). Or whatever else I want.

Um, that is, I will not post on a regular basis, making the schedule irregular. Not the commentary; that will be regular. Except when it's not.

I've had this domain name for quite a while, but just didn't have a chance to use it before. So we apologize to other securityzeds, securitizeds, Security Zeds, and Zed Security, who I'm sure are all wonderful people-- don't mean to tread on their toes. At all.

Also, the site won't be about securitizing, which pertains to creating financial instruments. This is securityzing. Which doesn't.
