When out on my lunch break today I drove by the entrance to a manufacturing plant (a Fortune 500 global company) that had a sign that read “Safety is everyone’s responsibility“.
I understand that protecting electronic bits and bytes isn’t as critical as protecting human bodies but this sign made me think about information security and where it is on the radar of business leaders. The truth is that unless and until management buys into security to the level where they’re putting reminders/mandates on signs out front such as this one we’re simply going through the motions and, effectively, going against the grain.
“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.”
