I recently consulted with a client on the SEC and Equifax breaches and had some thoughts that I left with that I wanted to share here:
Bottom line, pay attention to what’s happening. You can’t hit a target you can’t see – or aren’t even thinking about. Let these other peoples’ experiences and misfortunes be teachable moments for improving security in your business. Don’t repeat history because, as Stein’s Law says, if something cannot go on forever, it will stop.
Here’s some additional reading on this subject:
“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.”
