Reminders
Don't Forget to Schedule your 2016 Penetration Test
It's Q3 again folks! The last half of the year is what we at the firm affectionately refer to as "penetration testing season" -- when everyone is in a rush to get their penetration tests performed. Our calendars are already filling up quickly, so make sure to get your test scheduled now! Contact your account manager or Elizabeth Ramirez in our PMO to schedule!                                                                
We genuinely want to over-deliver!
But we can't if you don't fill out those survey forms we sent out! Please take a few moments out and complete those surveys and get them back to us so we can continuously become a better version of ourselves.

Remember, we only measure ourselves by 1 yard stick -- doing better work than we did yesterday and even better work tomorrow than we do today! Help us do that by telling us how we're doing and where we can improve.
