There’s a Japanese proverb that fits nicely into infosec:
“If you believe everything you read, perhaps it’s better not to read.”
Be it F.U.D., vendor hype, or “experts” who claim the sky is falling with every new exploit they uncover – you ultimately need to focus on doing what’s best in your environment under your terms.
“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.”
