I was quoted in the Wall Street Journal (Tuesday May 21 edition)…it’s a piece written by Gregory Millman talking about how senior executives are often at the root of information security problems. Check it out:

As I’ve written in the past, this is a big problem in businesses both large and small based on what I see in my work:
What to do when the CIO gets in the way of enterprise IT security
“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.”
