If you’re having trouble getting security policies on the radar of management and users – much less getting the real buy-in you need, don’t fret – there is a possible solution.
It’s an idea I got from Louise Slaughter (good name for a politician) and her attempt to force Obamacare on us. Simply make your policies “self-executing”. In other words, you write the policies and include verbiage in each one that makes them take effect without any buy-in, votes, or opinions whatsoever.
Imagine if it were this simple for anyone but politicians to manipulate the system in their favor. Now that would be information security change we could believe in!
“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.”
