It’s interesting. I stepped off the INFOSEC wagon in 2010 after I was severed from my job. I didn’t want to relocate to New Jersey or Texas so they let me go. When that happened I realized how burned out I was from technology and managing. So, I decided to open a business following my other passion of holistic wellness. Fast forward to today. I’m back on the wagon of doing Information Security and I’m loving it. I started a new position this past February and found drawn to the job as it was scoped out; and the company made me a really fair offer right out the gate. That says a lot about a company I think.
Now to the point of what’s interesting. The challenges with Information Security haven’t changed all that much. Sure the attackers are more sophisticated and the technology is just as vulnerable. What really hasn’t changed is the need to ramp up a good, solid security culture. The need to teach people INFOSEC is perhaps greater than before. That part is interesting. One would think hacks and thefts of data or identity would be so well known by now and that people every where would know how to deal with. The truth is, they don’t.
I look forward to commenting and discussing issues that impact security, hence the title of this blog.
Stay tuned and chime in if you want.
