The Week that Was – 10/28/2013

Last week had a number of interesting developments.  Two of them involved the law, privacy, and security implications. First, the Third Circuit Court ruled that GPS tracking devices attached to vehicles require a probable cause warrant.

RSA Recap Day 4

To be honest, my session schedule today absolutely flopped. The first session discussion the need to be agile and responsive to business needs was good. After that, it went downhill pretty fast. I decided to skip the next session to connect with one of my vendors at an offsite location. Because my voicemail was acting […]

The first day of the RSA 2012 conference was a good one. I learned a lot about the leadership of security, how prone we are to burnout, got some good hiring tips, and learned a few things about affecting change in my organization. Oh, and there were a few adult beverages and vendors available at […]
