When I started my information security consulting business 10 years ago I believed the words “principle” and “logic” would be a good fit for the way I think and work. The concept and mode of operation has worked out great. I was just reading a quote by Stephen Covey that reminded me of this – and information security leadership in general…he said:
“Principles are not values. A gang of thieves can share values, but they are in violation of the fundamental principles we’re talking about. Principles are territory. Values are maps. When we value correct principles, we have truth – a knowledge of things as they are.”
“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.”
