Happy New Year 2012

Happy New Year 2012

Welcome to 2012, and welcome back to my blog. Has the world ended yet? No? Still with us? Yes? Good.

Fifteen years ago, I was building high quality IT systems. Ten years ago, I was building high quality IT platforms. During the past five years, I have been building high quality IT teams.

This blog has evolved over the years along with my role in IT. My original focus in 2002 was on technical tips for Citrix, thin computing, and overall IT security. This shifted into business continuity and risk management in 2007. I focused on network architecture as a path for network security in 2009. Most recently, I have been writing about the management side of the equation.

In 2012, I will dig deeper into team work and team management. How do group dynamics play out in the technology field? What can we do, as a team, to deliver IT solutions with a high degree of quality and security?

I will also be doing more collaboration and group projects. This means more involvement with the #MiSec security group, working with the SE Michigan community to put on theBSides Detroit conference, doing a weekly BSides chat on the Rats and Rogues podcast, and presenting in West Michigan at GrrCon. Further, you can expect a new release of the SimWitty security tool.

Good things are in motion for 2012. Please keep your hands and feet inside at all times, and enjoy the ride.
