Here’s a little snippet I thought of when developing my latest audio program – Certifications, Degrees, or Experience – What’s Best for Your Security Career?. I thought it’d make for a good blog post.
Working in the field of information security, never ever forget that you get paid for what you do and contribute to your employer – not for the letters and acronyms that come after your name in your email signature or on your business card. I think security certifications and college degrees CAN benefit you IF you really make the best of it. But there’s more to the story…
“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.”
