My Random Thoughts

Start here. Go to the Blog for my posts, or pick a recent one from the list above or a category below. For a sort-of bio, check A bit a bout me.
Most posts here are from my career in information security, these days called cybersecurity. Occasionally, I branch out into other areas. After my military career in the Air National Guard and US Air Force, I spent 21 years in information technology (IT), information security (infosec), and systems engineering. This blog lets me pontificate at will on topics generally based on my different careers experiences.
