Quotes for the security Professional

The following quotes are just a few of those that I have collected for the past 30 years or so. I find each and every quote that I collect has some meaning to it within the business or security profession. “You just have to know where to look for that little nugget of wisdom in everything “Robert D. Sollars.

Some of these quotes have the names of those who spoke them others do not. I copied and pasted and may have left off the names by accident but they are still nuggets of platinum to live and work by. I have collected these for a long time, as I mentioned above, but they are still relevant in today’s dangerous world. So without ado…
