“Give, and you will receive” aren’t my words, they were uttered many years ago (See: Bible). People who know me, know that I’m not someone who easily takes advice at face value.

What happens in Mexico, stays in Mexico. NOT because anything bad or controversial happens here, far from it. It’s because this is a safe place to be “real”, to let your guard down without being attacked for being you. I’ll share things, but never in detail, protecting those who share things in confidence.

For people who don’t know, I live in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (actually, just south in a town called Mismaloya). Living here is the fulfillment of a dream, literally. I’ll write about “the dream” in future post, it’s pretty cool! We bought our home to provide a place where employees (FRSecure and SecurityStudio) can enjoy a […]
If I’m going to use this website, I should probably get better at updating content more often. Today, I updated the “Projects Page”, so YAY ME!

My busyness is what’s kept me from updating show notes and things. Episode 137 was a fun one. Brad was back and we talked about all Microsoft’s recent […]
Fundamentals are critical to the foundation of an information security program (or strategy). Deficiencies in information security fundamentals are analogous to cracks in a fortress foundation. Fortress defenses won’t stand and neither will your information security protection. The Information Security ABCs are drawn from information security fundamentals. These ABCs are written as education for people […]
