Here’s a good read by Mike Rothman (@securityincite) on how we tend to bury our heads in the sand over the most obvious things including HD Moore’s Law. For years, I’ve had a slide in my presentations titled “Future Trends” where I’ve talked about how exploits are getting easier for those with ill intent:
Mike’s post is a good reminder that this is a business reality – today, right now – and it’s up to every single one of us in IT to stay ahead of the curve.
“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.”
