I saw a great Word of the Day from Merriam-Webster over the Christmas break: Supererogation
It means “the act of performing more than is required by duty, obligation, or need”. Said another way it’s going the extra mile above and beyond to make things happen.
If there’s any one underlying component of being successful in everything you do it’s doing all the other things that need to be done in security (or wherever in your life) after you’ve completed what’s generally expected.
“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.”
