• 2008 is the year to be in information security

    07 Jan 2008

    Welcome to 2008!

    I’m back from my holiday time off and working to get the kinds out of my hands after so many days of not typing. Well, not as much time off as I had hoped. I regret to say that I spent nearly half of my vacation setting up my new computer. I’ll summarize my experience down to this: Windows Vista is nice in a lot of ways…but be careful, VERY CAREFUL in doing your homework before you upgrade your enterprise systems to it! Lots and lots of instabilities and incompatibilities! The good news is that I got it working and learned a lot about Vista’s and the HP/Compaq 8510P’s security features in the meantime!

    This year is going to be better than ever for us all – both personally and professionally. You know why? Because there’s never been a better time to work in the information security field. The demand for our skills is there, the salaries are higher than ever, and – most importantly – there’s a lot of fun to be had in this type of work if you seek it out.

    All the best for the new year…Stay tuned for some neat stuff with Security On Wheels.
