Any Reliable IT Security Consultants in LA?
Posted on 2011-09-12
A CEO friend is concerned that the head of his IT department may be abusing privileges and poking into things he shouldn't be. The guy seems to know a lot about incoming e-mails, documents, and other stuff that should be private.
Without going into details, the CEO doesn't want to take my initial recommendation (fire the guy immediately). He'd rather keep him and instead take away temptation by locking down areas of the network like the contents of the mail server or the CEO's personal hard drive / network share that aren't necessary for the guy to do his job -- or at least have some tools to monitor and notify him of internal abuse.
I feel for my friend and really want to help him out. He's great at running his company but knows nothing about IT. I realize this probably ends up with the IT guy out on his ear, but before that happens, can someone please recommend a great, reliable LA-based consultant who can come in, review policies, and help put some controls in place?
