Today, I came across a thought-provoking post from Tony Carothers on the danger of making assumptions when it comes to IT security. The takeaway was simple and straightforward: “Do not assume that because a company has been in business for “x” years, or they are the hottest product on the market, that it is backed by solid security.  That is an assumption that can cost.  Dearly.”
