If The Home Depot’s management were as strict with information security as they are with store policies I’m confident they could’ve avoided their data breach.
Have you heard their policy monger guy on their intercom system while shopping?? He sounds like that guy we’ve seen in those disturbing Allstate commercials. A bit creepy. It’s also quite uninviting – certainly doesn’t make you feel welcome in their stores.
At least they’ve covered their bases if some kid crashes into a moving forklift while scooting about on his shoes with wheels…
Here are some more thoughts I have on the HD breach in case you’re interested.
“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.”
