You cannot change facts (i.e. the industry your business is in, the regulations it’s up against, the type of sensitive information you’re responsible for managing, etc.) but you can change problems (i.e. user behavior, wayward goals, management not on board with security, etc. ).
As the philosopher James Burnham once said:
In the case of information security, there are tons of alternatives to the issues we face. It’s up to us to focus on what counts so we can eventually make a difference.
“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.”
