And what’s true in war with this quote is also true with cybersecurity. Most people and companies don’t give it a second […]

The problem is in the walls

Most companies, large and small, can be forgiven for thinking that data breaches and instances of hacking are caused by pimple-faced basement dwellers staring bleary-eyed into a dozen monitors in the middle of the night.However, they would be wrong for thinking so.

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately, asking me why someone should hire a company like SFLCSI to do pen-testing when the company, organization, etc., already has its own in-house IT department?
