Re: black magic
The article isnt telling companies to not fix their bad security practices, it is telling them how to have an honest assessment of their security with true confidentiality. If a company is afraid that any flaw found in an assessment can be brought out as Exhibit A in a lawsuit, they are far less likely to seek a high quality assessment. If a company knows that security company A is a top rated pentest company, and they will most likely find something significant to be addressed, but security company B is also "certified" from a check the box regulatory perspective but most likely wont find anything, AND they are concerned that any finding can be incorporated into a lawsuit, then what is the motivation to go with security company A? If however, the findings are truely confidential, as the process involved here outlines, than the company can go with the best to find all of its flaws and work on correcting them.

I'm appalled by this article. Instead of directing people with bad security practices to fix them, you are counselling them on how to hide their poor practices!!! Shameful.
