Thought for the day: Remember

Today is Memorial Day in the United States. Memorial Day is the day when we remember the ultimate sacrifice that our veterans made when they died in service to their country.

Take a few minutes today and think about the freedoms we enjoy because of their willingness to stand in harm's way and pay the price for us.

Here are today's Interesting Information Security Bits from around the web.

  1. Chris, a good online friend who I hope to meet in real life someday, is writing up a series of posts on how he got to where he is today. It will be interesting to see how his story unfolds.
