Hi, welcome to my blog. It started out as a place to be able to post links and news so I could find them again. I began adding my own commentary, and its proven surprisingly popular. Thanks for stopping by. The search is in the upper right-hand side if you don’t see what you are looking for.
I am a security administrator responsible for the day to day computer security at a mid-sized beltway bandit. In that role I recommend, evaluate, and implement security solutions. This includes things like PKI, Desktop Encryption, EFS, Desktop Endpoint Protection, DLP, IDS, Firewall, vulnerability scanning, patch management, FISMA, and NAC. You get the idea. The list could go on and on.
I have a Master of Science in Computer Science from James Madison University.
That degree included two NSA approved certificates: Information Systems Security (INFOSEC) Professionals (NSTISSI No. 4011) and Information Systems Security Officers (CNSSI No. 4014).
