Hamilton, NJ (PRWEB) January 7, 2009
Pivot Point Security, the NY/NJ/PA metro area's leading provider of independent and objective information security, assurance and compliance consulting services, launched its web log today.
The newly launched blog entitled, "Risky Business" (blog.pivotpointsecurity.com), retains the risk-focused message and holistic view of Information Security and Assurance that Pivot Point has become known for.
Blogger and Principal Enterprise Security Consultant John Verry commented on the impetus for the launch of the blog. "We are an audit-centric firm. In a sense we are in the "opinion" basis. The blog will hopefully allow us to extend the scope of our opinion to a large community, who in turn, will hopefully provide insights that will prove beneficial to us."
The driving factors for the blog's launch are not completely altruistic, as Verry continues, "Of course we also want to promote the work our company does in the most effective way possible. We hope that the 'Risky Business' blog can expose our information assurance expertise to a wider audience."
The initial topics are representative of the anticipated content:
•A posting of a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution presentation which featured a synopsis on both the benefits and shortcomings of SIEM solutions.
•An anecdotal account of an Identity Theft point of sale system hack.
•A list of Best Practices for firing a network administrator.
The blog will be published weekly on topics relevant to information security, compliance, controls, frameworks and Information Technology Governance Risk and Compliance.
