If it involves computers or electronics, I probably do it.

I have experience with Exchange, Sharepoint, Zabbix, Powershell, Hyper-V clusters, and a whole host of other things.

If you need to contact me, my email address is grant@emsley.ca

@RodMacPherson Yes, they can install their own CA certificate, use the VPN to intercept all traffic, and see the contents of all encrypted traffic as well.

@Thoriumbr i meant approved by the person sending in the email - surely they will know what they did or did not send. Agreed that pgp propably wont work unless the userbase is very technically inclined.

What kind of disk encryption are you using? There are different types that all work very differently.

+1 it's not your webserver that's at risk - it's your customers and your reputation.

comment How to get top management support for security projects?
@akam that's where network access protection comes in...no antivirus? no internet. no file shares. no network access period. That way you can have all the viruses you want, but you won't be spreading them over the network. If there is a legitimate reason to not have antivirus exceptions can be made, but those should be extremely rare.

comment Does my brokerage/bank use poor password security measures?
Unfortunately banks are notoriously bad for having TERRIBLE password policies. Mostly because some of their processes relies on ancient software that can only handle 8 character passwords, can't handle special characters, and doesn't salt or even encrypt the passwords. You could try voting with your money and switching banks...but good luck finding one that doesn't have the same horrible issues.

Corporate policies don't force antivirus to get installed. Group policy software deployment and network access protection policies do. Deploying antivirus isn't something the users should have to do themselves.

They won't necessarily be turning it off: wiebetech.com/products/HotPlug.php so you may want to include a radio or GPS based trigger as well.
