  6. This post strikes a particular chord with me as I have been thinking about this quite a bit lately. Most of us are operating under some pretty crushing workloads, but it we don't take time to manage our people, those workloads will just even heavier.

Things Are Shaping Up



I am Honored!

As I was catching up on blogs this evening, I came across this posting on the RSA Security Bloggers blog that gives the list of blogs nominated for the 2009 Social Security Awards.  The awards are to be given out at the Security Blogger's Meetup.

Imagine my surprise when I found Infosec Ramblings on the list in the n0n-technical blogs category.

To the person or persons who nominated me, my sincere thanks. I am honored that you consider this little corner of the blogosphere worthy of sitting with the other fine blogs on the list.

Congratulations to all who were nominated and I am really looking forward to meeting many of you at the meet-up.

Hello everyone.  RSA Europe 2008 is just around the corner!  Some of us have been talking about setting up a Security Blogger/Security Catalyst/SecurityTwits meetup and have settled on a date, time and location.  We will be getting together on Tuesday the 28th at 8:00 PM.  The Novotel London Excel bar is the location.  The hotel is part of the Excel conference center, so should be easy to track down, but just in case, here's a map:

If you would like to join us or have a suggestion for a better location, please let me or Security4All know.  I can be contacted either by comments to this post or kriggins _at_ and Security4All can be contacted here.

Hope to see you there.

Update: I realized this morning that I was remiss in specifying who was paying for any food or drink you might have during this get together. Everybody will be responsible for their own tab for this event.

Update #2: Today's the day! As indicated above, we will be in the Upper Deck Bar in the Novotel hotel.  We are going to do our best to carve out a corner to the right of the bar near the river.  Please see the About page to see a picture of me which may help you in picking out our group 🙂
