  • A look at Microsoft’s SIR v14

The executive summary also does a good job of highlighting key points.  That said, I had a couple of observations of my own that others might find interesting.   ...

  • Get Real with Information Security

    In 2012, the writers of malware and the attackers of networks were very busy, using both social engineering and increased technical sophistication to fuel an increased number of attacks.

  • Learning the Lessons of History

    Esther 3:5-10 KJV (5) And when Haman saw that Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence, then was Haman full of wrath. … (8) And Haman said unto king Ahasuerus, There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the people in all the provinces of thy kingdom; and their laws are diverse from all people; neither ...

  • Job Hunting: It’s All About Relationships

    Earlier this week, I read an article about unemployment and the struggles of those coming out of college and graduate school who are seeking jobs. A surprising number of people were simply spouting the rhetoric that people who don’t have jobs are simply lazy and feeling entitled. May God have mercy on those who posted, such that they never have to ...

  • Why We Have No Online Privacy

    Earlier today, as I read a very self-serving article lamenting how online growth will be killed due to impending “Do Not Track” legislation, it became very clear to me why online privacy in the US is almost entirely non-existent. As a society in the 21st century, we have willing accepted the idea that in order to be able to obtain anything useful ...

  • Dear Recruiter: Help Me Help You

    As we head into the second half of 2012, I average about 3 to 4 calls/emails from recruiters per week.  In contrast to the overall job market which is still not doing so well, the market for information technology professionals is quite lively, especially in and around the metro areas.  Hot skills include the following: information ...

    Note to the heads of sales, marketing, and web site development: I’m tired of your registration walls (regwalls), and will no longer be supporting them.

  • Miscalculating The Time

    Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. (Matthew 24:32-33) We have an annoying tendency to be overconfident about our ability to deal with complex situations ...
