There’s an interesting contrast in our features. Two of them are by lawyers who share a scientific bent, and write pieces that try to bring a scientific rigor to the practice of cybersecurity. And two of them focus on practical matters. One explains why companies should recognize that cyber is a credit risk, and treat it accordingly; the other highlights the value of regularly hiring ethical hackers to do penetration testing in order to uncover vulnerabilities. ​​READ​​
One man is on a quest to bring rigor to the discipline. He hopes he isn’t alone.

Now, nearly 15 years later, the field’s pull on him is stronger than ever, as he tries to answer some very basic questions—questions that he believes are crucial.

Two are arrested ‘for doing their job,’ says their boss, who laments the precedent.

By David Hechler
Ethical hackers seem to be a growing profession in the cybersecurity world. But they’ve been flying under the radar until recently, when they got noticed because two employees of the company Coalfire were arrested. This sudden eruption of interest is a good opportunity to examine the reasons why companies would be wise to hire them to do penetration testing at least annually. ​READ
