  • Guess What? Technology is not easy

    It might seem that way because of how ubiquitous it is, but technology is not really easy.  Lots of time has been spent trying to hide the core complexity so that every day users can better experience and manage high-end technology, but at the end of the day, the complexity remains somewhere. We’re almost at the end of 2011, and the two ...

  • Just ask Sony…

    Why should you take your organization’s information security posture seriously? Just ask Sony.  It has been estimated that Sony will spend more than $170 million dollars due to the recent breaches they have suffered.  Personally, I think that the $170M figure is too conservative.  I expect it to get much closer to $300M than ...

  • Managing Technology-based Risks

    Risks exist. You would think that this is so obvious as to not need saying, but too many people appear to operate as though downplaying or ignoring risks have any impact on their reality. That sign announcing “bridge out” isn’t really concerned with how much you believe it or agree with it.  It doesn’t care if you are too busy to deal with ...

  • It’s The Little Things That Get You Every Time…

    Even on the smallest of networks, the failure to pay attention to every detail can make a routine upgrade or migration far more complicated than it needs to be. This year, I’ve had an above average number of mail server related incidents, but in many cases I made things worse by overlooking something small. For instance, there were at least 3 ...

  • The InfoSec Perspective for April 2010

    It has been a busy month or so for information security.  Apple has patched a vulnerability that was showcased in a recent hacking contest, Microsoft has released a major set of fixes in its most recently Patch Tuesday, and and Oracle (which now owns Sun) has not yet committed to patching a Java vulnerability on Windows that has been ...

  • Home Network Overhaul 2010 – Conclusion

    This is the sixth part in a series of articles tracking the implementation of virtualization on my home network.  Planning for the project originally started at the end of 2007, with some equipment purchased in early 2008, but the bulk of the work was completed in the past 2 months. For those interested in seeing how this all played out over ...

  • Home Network Overhaul 2010 – Part 2

    It has been a very productive year so far, as it pertains to my ongoing Home Network Re-Engineering Project.  In fact, the past few days have been especially productive. I was finally able to fix the hardware problem that prevented my old domain controller from booting, and since the boys’ old Windows XP machine began to fail (spontaneous ...

  • What Software as a Service Really Provides

    Software as a Service, or SaaS, is seen and marketed as a way to remove or reduce the complexities and cost associated with local enterprise software deployments, especially where such software has a desktop installation facet to it. As is typical with all (relatively new) technologies – especially in recent years – there comes the inevitable ...
