    • I realize that many companies have bounty programs, but I always wonder if there has ever been a case where the hacker decided not to report what they found. Some of the people that are hacking them aren’t exactly the most ethical people, so I would not be shocked if this has happened.

    • Yes, that is true. In this day and age, there are just too much data out there. Organizations who intend to use data will need to be able to weed out the important information from all the noise and draw reasonable conclusion from the information they gather. They should also not mistake correlation and causation and draw false conclusions.

  • Hi Darin,

    Thank you for sharing this article to us! I really liked the seven recommendations and I read the article via your link!

  • The article I want to share for this week was called “Password Reuse Remains Rampant.” This articled talked about that based on a professional survey, it found that 95% of respondents recognized the cha […]

    • What I find amazing about this is that even though we all know that not creating strong passwords is a huge risk, everyone continues to use weak practices. People seem to use the same email and password for everything, including their bank and social media accounts. Once someone gets the email/ password combination, they can easily try it out at various websites to see what accounts they can get into.

      What is scary is that someone who works at a bank, government entity or some top secret position may be using the same password practices that are being described in this article. People may just be asking for trouble by doing this.

      • I agree with you Blake, many people use their same password for different accounts even who has security and IT background. In my opinion, companies need to establish more awareness programs that improve the employees’ knowledge about the potential risks and impacts that may occur based on their behavior. Also, creating strict rules and policies will encourage the employee to manage their passwords effectively.

    I agree with you Alex. It is really hard to auditors when they meet some special situations, like your close friends or family members involve in trouble and ask for your help. However, as a credible auditor, i think we all should treat them and do our job properly.

    That is true, independence in any types of auditing areas is the most important word to measure the auditors. Many large auditing companies involved economical crimes due to the lack of independence. Even the client is your close friend or family member, we should still keep space to them and do our job properly.
