Some smart people working in IT security doubt the importance of creating new executive-level leadership for cybersecurity in the U.S.; I'd suggest that we need just that, driven by some of the same reasons those experts cite in their arguments.
Bob Maley, CISO for the Commonwealth of PA, has made some extrodinary progress in managing IT security risk via the adoption of automated penetration testing, as evidenced by his recent speech at the RSA Conference 2009.
The annual RSA Conference will go off next week and Core will be there, hosting several presentations and meeting with our customers and partners to spread the doctrine of automated penetration testing.
Welcome to Core Security's new company blog. We hope to keep you up-to-date with everything that we're doing as a business, and lend some additional perspective to important conversations that affect our industry.
People are talking about new partnerships aimed at marrying penetration testing with vulnerability scanners. And while this may be a new concept for some, we here at Core have been focused on this type of integration for years.
