This week I had the opportunity and privilege to serve as a panelist on mobile security at the Evanta CISO Executive Summit in Atlanta. What a neat event…it wasn’t just another infosec show. It was unique in its focus and well run by Corrine Buchanan and Mitch Evans who always seemed to have a smile on their faces – something we don’t see enough of at these types of shows.
Another thing was a St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital video they played featuring Marlo Thomas talking about her father’s work with the hospital. She said something about the hospital regarding its mission that stuck in my mind: “Don’t just treat kids. Let’s try to figure out what makes them sick.”
Great approach with an interesting information security tie-in: Don’t just throw technologies and policies at security…find out what’s actually at risk. Indeed, we have to be smart in using the resources we’re given.
“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.”
