Big 5 Consultants Form e-Commerce Security Company
The founding white hat experts plan to reduce the chasm between e-Commerce and security. Their goal is to utilize hands-on classroom training where clients are taught how to hack and how to prevent hacking. The company also will become an information source as it publishes easy-to-understand articles and establishes its Web site that features vendor neutral security information. Finally, the company will provide consulting services for clients.
Two of the founding partners, George Kurtz and Stuart McClure, are international experts on technology related security issues. They also are co-authors of Hacking Exposed – Network Security Secrets & Solutions  and have been interviewed by Business Week, CNN, USA Today and The Washington Post, among others.
Foundstone is now one of only two pure-play security service providers in the market. The company believes that the shortage of security professionals with deep technical knowledge is the single largest inhibitor of global growth and adoption of e-commerce technologies.
