Vote for the horsemen. If not me, then the others for a bigger point here. Those of you who take the ISC and CISSP seriously need to look at your org.

They are the guys who you look out for and they look out for you. If you see a bug in their code, you’ll sort it out for them. When they call you up at 3am for help with a security strategy presentation, you stay up with them all night working on it. When you are stuck on something, you’ll turn to them for help....

Build a cert and program that tests fundamental skills and means something to employers who really need things done. Offer existing cert holders one year and a free test to get the new one.

Ok, so after a flurry of tweets about the candidacy of others, my name got thrown in there like so much pasta being chucked at a wall. Well, it stuck in my case and I decided to run. So, if you think that I can get in there and stir up some trouble, and maybe make some changes then VOTE FOR ME in this petition...

So what is an Infosec professional? Like the Samurai we're really warriors, we're soldiers in a battle of good vs. not-so-good. We craft our skills, we increase our knowledge, we strive to be better than those who might do our Enterprises harm, breach our castle walls and loot our treasures of data and services...

The sessions felt somewhat lack-luster – a lot of what I was hearing had been said before. Many of the conversations were consistent with other events and the topics felt replayed.
