My own webpage, who would have ever thought it? I know back in the 8th grade when they gave us some sort of “here’s what you have the ability to be in your life” test and mine came back that I would be a fine ditch digger (really, that is what I was told by my 8th grade teachers) that not many of that crowd would have thought I’d be able to get to where I am professionaly and personally.
I am going to use this venue to talk mostly about Leadership in the area of Cyber and Information Security and the trials and tribulations associated with that profession. The comments on these pages will be mine and are not meant to represent the beliefs or opinions of any of the companies I work with and for.
While I will do my best to focus on Cyber Security leadership I may have moments when my musings take me into mentoring, leadership and just life according to Kevin – but mostly the posts will focus on Cyber security. The stories and musings will all be true but they won’t all be based on my own personal direct experiences – nor will I tell you which ones are based on my direct experiences as I do not want to embarrass any present or past employers.
