May 2010 ramblings

I see it's been almost two months since my last blog entry. What poor discipline - sorry. Things have been really hectic here at First Base Technologies, which is my only excuse.

This year's Infosecurity Europe was the best for many years - we invested in a new and larger stand and more staff and the results speak for themselves. Lots of visitors with a better appreciation of what penetration testing is all about and how it fits into PCI-DSS. Better informed discussions about penetration testing as part of Governance, Risk and Compliance too.

Today I had an excellent meeting with Claranet who provide secure hosting in a private cloud. Just what we need - a guarantee of where our data resides for compliance with Data Protection coupled with a cast-iron SLA. And they provide secure networking too. Great stuff.
