When it really mattered, how many times were you asked to grade your own homework at school?

What has this got to do with cyber security?

When you decide to check the strength of your security defences:

  1. You could ask the people who (you assume) are managing your cyber security defences.
  2. You could ask an independent auditor to give you an independent view.

If you choose the first option, you’re asking someone to grade their own work.

So, don’t be surprised if they pass with flying colours.

Even though an independent auditor may tell you those flying colours are just different shades of RED!

When you want an independent view, I can help.



PS Congratulations to all of the young adults in Ireland who received their Junior Certificate exam results today.

  • If you know someone who did well, make sure you congratulate them – Their hard work has paid off.
  • If you know someone who didn’t, remind them that these exams only test specific types of intelligence. There are many millionaires who never passed an exam.
