Imagine a scenario where poor management, failure to take appropriate action, personnel changes and miscommunication about who’s responsible for what leads to a catastrophic event at your business? That’s exactly what the findings were of the BP oil spill.
Sadly, 11 people died because of this incident. Luckily, our line of work isn’t quite so risky but your business can still get in a bind when information security is mismanaged.
Here’s a link to articles, podcasts and webcasts I’ve written/recorded on the management’s link to information security and a few more bits on how to sell people on information security and keep them on your side to help prevent poor management decisions in the first place.
“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.”
