I had the opportunity and pleasure to do the technical editing on this book by my friend and colleague Becky Herold:
The Shortcut Guide to Understanding Data Protection from Four Critical Perspectives
This book is hands-down one of the best books out there on information security and why it matters to the business. Becky doesn’t simply regurgitate the same old stuff either (not that I would expect her to). She has many original thoughts and great anecdotal stories to boot. You have to read it….and tell your CIO, CTO, and compliance manager about it as well. It should be required reading for anyone who underfunds, questions, or otherwise doubts the value of information security.
BTW, did I mention it’s free? Just sign-up with Realtimepublishers.com (a great source of IT and security content) and it’s yours for the taking.
“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.”
