notSoCoolGuy515211dThis rant gave me anxiety.
So I have a question, can you guys not file a case against that CEO of XYZ if he knowingly gave you the wrong address?
LameCode20175211d@notSoCoolGuy We could, but it is almost never Worth suing a company bigger than yourself. They would also have a strong case if they stated we were not competent enough to figure out that that address was in fact not correct. If an audit ends in an unexpected way, it's almost never something that ends in court/with the Police. Most of the time some sort of agreement is made. In this case we upgraded the badge system for the "victim" company for free and we agreed to not ever do audits for company xyz and their associates ever again.
I've done quite a few audits but this is the only one where I was actually scared for my career.
Having a crime in your file is very bad when you work in security.
Root75652211d@LameCode20 How the hell were you at fault and responsible for damages when you did everything you were asked? XYZ provided the wrong address; XYZ is at fault.
If in your country they can make a case for your incompetence, you could make thrice the case for their own incompetence. How did XYZ not even know their own bloody address?
They should be responsible for the other company’s intrusion and paying you for the audit.
