This month, we’re addressing a few topics that through our experience, we find can be misunderstood.
We start by looking at proposed Mandatory Data Breach Disclosure laws. If not done right, they will hurt companies who take security seriously, more so than companies that don’t. We then look at Vulnerability Management programs and why many companies struggle with it. Then, to throw a spanner in the works, we pick apart penetration testing and the view by many, that it’s a security panacea.
There are also a bunch of interesting articles from the Net and our own Securus Global News and Blog site. In particular, have a look at Nick Ellsmore’s post on the US penetration testing market and analysis of the Australian market.
If you haven’t yet seen our Facebook page, check it out. We’re the first Australian Security Consultancy that is using this medium to focus on spreading awareness of Information Security issues into the broader community.
As we mentioned in the last newsletter, this year we celebrate 10 years in business. When we started out, we did so with a vision to raise the bar and expectations on what security consultancies should be providing businesses. We believe we have done this, yet, we are still trying to raise the bar further everyday. We consistently get the great feedback from our clients and recently got this one from a large US based Cloud Service Provider: “We managed over 80 customer sponsored pen tests against our environment, and from my experience, Securus had the most skilled testers (and that's against approx 30 outsourced pentesting teams)”.
If you have never worked with our organisation, we see that as a challenge to win your business. We welcome the opportunity to show you why we have established the reputation we have in our industry both locally and overseas. Give me a call directly anytime for chat.
