The late, great Richard Carlson once said:
“Humility and inner peace go hand in hand. The less compelled you are to try to prove yourself to others, the easier it is to feel peaceful inside.”
I believe this theory explains why so many people in IT and information security are so stressed out. I’m also convinced that this concept is the basis for all the bad choices and negative behavior we’ve seen in the world of IT and information security as of late.
Moral of the story: Don’t be this guy…That is if you want to have inner peace and you want to go places in your career.
“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.”
