I don’t watch a ton of TV but when I do I often lean towards shows that teach me something (Seinfeld, Reno 911!, and South Park aside). If you haven’t see it yet, check out the Discovery Channel show called It Takes a Thief. The premise of the show is home security and how weaknesses can/are exploited by burglars.
You’ll learn about how to keep your home locked down (lots of stuff you’ve likely never considered) and you’ll learn how the criminal mind works. This insight translates nicely into how the bad guys attack our networks and applications. One of those information security skills that pays to keep sharp.
“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.”
