Every time I browse the Chronology of Data Breaches and read the headlines coming out from Dark Reading, threatpost, and the like, I can’t help but shake my head.
What is it really going to take to get people – mostly management, but some in IT – to fix the stupid, silly, low-hanging fruit that’s plaguing so many networks today…? Well, here’s a new piece I wrote for the nice folks at Lumension where I delve into this subject a little more.
As Thomas Jefferson said, Determine never to be idle. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing. Our security problems can be fixed if we choose to fix them.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
