Recently I had the pleasure of unveiling my new keynote, “InfoSec Life Lessons from Dr. Seuss” at the BruCon conference hosted each year in Gent, Belgium. The event is absolutely amazing, extremely well-managed, features some of the best speakers, and offers actionable content. The energy and collaboration was off the charts and I would highly recommend any colleagues to attend this conference if given the opportunity.

The opportunity to share a new message was a key point of my excitement at this conference. For the first time, I stepped completely outside of my comfort zone of technical content and in to a realm of virgin leadership territory. It was terrifying, exhilarating and I’m so happy to share it with you here. The full video presentation is available on YouTube in its entirety. Some anecdotal scenes are detailed below by timestamp.

For months I’ve wondered
with eager anticipation
how Hoff, Jack and crew
created this new SQUIRREL Nation

I prayed, I questioned, I pondered
for mental emancipation
but the enigma just grew
until I clicked the Disney station

And so now I’ve uncovered
the source of SQUIRREL’s creation
I bet no one ever knew
about the SIMP-elation

I present to you all
for your viewing pleasure
the definitive source of SQUIRREL

Happy Friday !

I haven’t been as consistent in blogging about the events I’m speaking at as I would like to be. I did want to take a few minutes from this crazy work week to remind everyone about SecTor, Security Education Conference in Toronto next week. (more…)

Well, I’m getting more and more excited about the upcoming Security Bloggers Meetup at RSA.

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of having a brief run-in with Alan Shimel and Ryan Russell just this week, so I can cross them off my ‘yet to meet’ list and add them to the ‘looking forward to seeing again’ list.

With my recent addition of (and addiction to) Twitter, I’ve had the opportunity to chat and swap semi-meaningless banter with a variety of other SBN members, especially the ‘glue’ of the event, Jennifer Leggio, and some of the main ‘characters’… a fitting term I’d say… including Martin McKeayThe Hoffmeister,  Rich Mogull, Ryan Naraine, Mister Brad Feld, the second Jack Daniel I now know, plus our recently-crowned greatest live-tweeter everBen J and several others- I’m still learning who’s who and who’s going to the Meetup at RSA. Sorry if I’ve missed anyone, but please hop on the SBN site and check out the latest blogs and member links.

You’ll definitely be seeing more info and updates from me as we get closer to RSA, and I plan to try and blog regularly while there to let you all know what shenangians are going on. Until then, here’s a little more info to stay in the loop!

Want to know more? You can find more blog links on SBN and a fit-to-twit list at (the other) Jennifer’s Security Twit post.

Want to watch the event Live? If you’re a regular reader of my blog, or any of the other SBN group, you’ll get a chance to join us virtually. Evidently they (or I guess ‘we’) will be streaming live with conferencing and video blogs. Check this link for details on live event streams. Guaranteed to be entertaining!
