Chess and Computer Network Security

I know several readers have real-life jobs in the fields of systems, computers, programming, etc. What do you think of this analogy:
There's a popular proverb among players: "A man surprised is half beaten." A classic game of defense and offense, tactics and strategy - in which both analytical and intuitive thinking come into play and knowing your enemy is tantamount to winning - chess has many lessons for those who are responsible for network security. Chess player or system administrator, neither can afford to be caught with his guard down.
