Every, or nearly every, programming course/tutorial starts with a "hello world" program. so in my initial post I pay my respects to this tradition.
I have been in the IT field for over 20 years and have worked, contracted and consulted to and for many companies in many capacities. Currently as I have my CISSP I am concentrating on security.
I plan using this blog to discuss security related topics, but reserve the right to wander off topic and follow tangents from time to time.
I have to thank Two Guys Named Joe: A technology podcast for the average Joe (http://www.2gnj.com) for getting me thinking about this. They invited me to be a guest on one of their podcasts (2gnj Episode 20: Security is everyone's concern), and found that I liked it.
I did decide that blogging would be a quicker, easier method. So here I am world.
