I forgot to mention that I was a guest panelist on Alan Shimel’s SSAATY podcast last night.Â This was a great panel.Â I had a great time, and I think we really hit some key points and offered some solutions to security admins and managers out there that need some help selling security to execs.
The panel consisted of yours truly along with Martin McKeay (Network Security Blog, ComputerWorld),Â Bobby Dominguez (Sykes) and Mike Rothman (SecurityIncite, NetworkWorld).Â It was hosted by Alan and Mitchell, two of the best podcast hosts I know, and though I have never met either face to face, I know they are both good guys.
One person that was scheduled but ran into some emergency security management duties was Michael from mcwresearch.com.Â I understand why he couldn’t be there, but I really missed his insight.Â I would have loved to hear some of his horror stories.
BTW, I was VERY impressed by Bobby Dominguez.Â I have never talked to Bobby, but I figured out very quickly yhat he has a vast amount of experience, expertise, and just plain ol’ smarts.Â You REALLY need to listen to this guy.Â Hopefully he will start a blog soon himself.Â He has a lot to offer the community.
Martin is always good to have on a discussion like this because he has a lot of experience in this area.Â He never ceases to impress.
And Mike Rothman, well…, he’s Mike.Â What else need be said?Â And we actually agreed on something in the podcast, if you can believe it!Â Actually, Mike and I agree onÂ a lot of things.Â We just like to disagree to make it exciting.
And of course, there’s me.Â ‘Nuff said!
Anyway, the podcast should be up soon.Â Go look for it in the next few days at Alan’s blog.
