What I have been up to

I got up a little early today to work on my to do list since I have been out working on other things as of late, however I decided it was time to update my blog with a quick snippet of what I have been up to lately.

Last week I attend a cybersecurity conference in my area called SecureWorld. I had a really fun time. I sat in on a bunch of very insightful talks that ranged from a FBI agent reviewing a crypto mining case to listening in on a panel about risk and how to communicate what risks are key in a business. I had the opportunity to talk to some vendors that our company has been utilizing for some time now as well. Overall, the time and money spent to attend was well worth it.

Yesterday, I also gave a talk at Penn State on Vulnerability Management with Data Driven Defenses. I had an absolute blast. I had spent a lot of time preparing in the past few weeks, practiced the talk to my dogs, and even did a test run with my team in our daily working session meeting. The students seemed interested throughout the whole talk and I even got a shirt and food from them at the end :D. I am most definitely going to be looking into doing more talks.

For now though, I need to get back to work. I have a many items and projects that were back burnered the past few weeks that require some attention. I also have a cybersecurity intern that will be starting with me at the end of next month. Until then, back to the grind stone. LETS GO!
