Apparently our Imperial Federal Government can’t even follow its own rules for information privacy and security. It was just announced that a secret list of nuclear sites was released “by accident”.
First of all, “accidents” are like “computer glitches” – there’s almost always human error behind them. Do you see the irony here? How is heavily-regulated private industry to be expected to lock everything down when the very entity writing OUR regulations can’t even protect their OWN information!?
The lost external hard drive at the National Archives a couple of weeks ago was one thing. But this!? We’re talking about potential national security issues here (although they claim there aren’t any). I’m sure the data leakage prevention vendors are going crazy now.
“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.”
