Check them out here. I like the concept of the Top 25…it certainly helps spread the word…but who are they kidding when they talk about the Top 25’s “major” impacts?!
The site claims:
*Software buyers will be able to buy much safer software.
*Programmers will have tools that consistently measure the security of the software they are writing.
*Colleges will be able to teach secure coding more confidently.
*Employers will be able to ensure they have programmers who can write more secure code.
Folks, this stuff has been around for ages…and so have the barriers to accomplishing these very things. As long as humans are involved, as long as developers aren’t on board with security, and as long as management doesn’t buy into this whole concept, it’s going to be more of the same.
“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.”
