Hello, and welcome to my professional journal. Here I post updates on my book, articles, and mentions, note events I will speak at, and provide commentary on what I see as relevant security, privacy, and risk topics; in particular the Heuristic Risk Management method I developed. I’ll try and keep the rants about the blatant stupidity that is the root cause of most security issues to a minimum.

My Background

20+ years experience as a CISO for organizations ranging from global enterprises to SaaS startups, and as builder/leader of advisory consulting practices delivering security, risk, and compliance services.
