About this site...


My bio...

I am an independent security researcher and an IT professional with over 38 years of experience in programming, network engineering and security. I have an MBA as well as CISSP certification. I am also an online instructor for the University of Phoenix.

I've held positions as an IS director, director of infrastructure engineering, director of information security, and programming manager at a variety of manufacturing, health care, and distribution companies. Before joining the private sector, I served 10 years in the United States Army Military Police with four years as a military police investigator.

I've written three books, "Just Enough Security," "Microsoft Virtualization," and "Enterprise Security:A Practitioner's Guide." I am also the author of various papers and articles on security management.


This site...

When writing for other sites and organizations, I realized that I was starting to write about the same things others were also writing about. Readers were rarely treated to anything new. So I revamped this site.

Here we explore new or unique ways of applying security concepts. Our goal is to show security practitioners how to intelligently apply existing and emerging security concepts and technologies. To do this, I develop vendor-neutral papers and training videos and make them available here.
