IT security writer warns other professionals: What happened to Tulsa's IT director could happen to you

Bill Brenner says he empathizes with suspended IT director Tom Golliver

The recent troubles with the city of Tulsa's website have the attention of corporate security officers nationwide.

Bill Brenner writes for CSO magazine and CSOonline.com, a trade publication for corporate I-T secuirity professionals.

Brenner empathizes with suspended City I-T Director Tom Golliver.

"It seems to me that this IT team in Tulsa was doing the best it could with the situation."

Brenner says Golliver's mistake was not checking to see if an outside security firm was running a "penetration test" on the website, which, it turns out, they were.
