Information security vendor Venafi released a survey at the October Gartner show that has some interesting findings related to encryption management:
Given what I see in my information security assessments – how many in IT often struggle to find newer ways of managing and securing their environment – none of this surprises me. It’s often home-grown solutions sticking around, the general perception that policies can be enforced and processes can be followed without the right technologies in place and a general lack of leadership in/around IT.
Still interesting insight from the survey nonetheless…apparently there’s still some room for improvement – even with something as niche (given the big picture) as encryption management.
Apparently Venafi is conducting an extended encryption management survey to dig even deeper on this data. Might be worth checking out to see how your organization compares
“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.”
