The Senate Homeland Security Committee, in their infinite wisdom, prodded by SANS’ Alan Paller apparently believe they can legislate secure software from IT vendors.
That’d be like legislating more secure health records, and personal financial information, and so on. Oh wait, that has been done. And it’s not working all that well as far as I can tell.
That’d also be like legislating higher-quality cars. Ha! The Feds can work that out since they’re going to own that industry moving forward.
Ahhh. Laws, laws, laws – they’re cropping up all over the place and are hardly doing anyone any good.
“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.”
