…or mismanagement if you will:
The first quote relates to management’s responsibility and using wisely their power of choice when it comes to doing poorly on a security assessment, failing an audit, experiencing a security breach, and falling out of compliance:
“Failure to hit the bullseye is never the fault of the target.” – Gilbert Arland
The second one relates to management not supporting information initiatives year after year and then, once a breach occurs, suddenly finding it in them to make things happen:
“When they feel the heat they’ll see the light.” – Herman Cain
Just a couple of thoughts to add to your arsenal…
“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.”
