I disagree comprehensively with this statement. Through participation in
developer conferences like CodeMash and Stirtrek, I have seen quantifiable
increase in the 'reach' of security. All of the OWASP chapters in the area
have seen significant increases in growth, there have been far more
security -focused talks at user groups, and there has been a significant
increase in requests for security expertise from the area consulting
firms. Just "being there" is a great place to start.
That said, if something significant is learned while we are just being
there, and it leads to a larger strategy, so be it. Personally, I'm
pleased to see some action on a front of attack, rather than constant
discussion. It's a low risk activity with a potentially high reward.
