Gavin Dennis authors an article exploring the bad security practices of a company that offers security services

On November 18, 2018, Gavin Dennis published an article titled “Security shoemakers and the stories they tell”.

The article briefly explores an example that security companies sometimes don’t practice what they preach, even at a basic level. It is based on experience with a company in Jamaica.

A highlight of his article
If you look through a few popular security surveys and reports covering Information Security, you will find a lot of blame towards users and calling them the weakest link, but mainly you’ll see much emphases that businesses should make security “a top priority”. Security companies all around seem to drive fear and anxiety to businesses. I’m a part of the industry, but I don’t like that kind of behaviour. While many are driving this fear, they are often poorly prepared for the same targeted attacks.
