Status: Status update... - 30 Jul 2014
Job Title: CTO, Incident Response Services, Cyber Security Group

I spend my days working with our teams on ways to protect our customers and prepare for the future. Growing dynamic teams of people and helping to eliminate obstacles in the way of success are my primary goals. Great people without obstacles open the door to true innovation.

I look for people who want to achieve something spectacular, that reach deep within themselves and return with greatness. People who aren't afraid to fail, who can self realize and alter course and when I find them I work with them.

I strive to take advantage of every opportunity that the day presents me and excel beyond expectations.

Thousands of years ago, news traveled at the pace of man or animal. I mean to say you would only learn what someone else was doing or what was happening either in the next town, village, kingdom, etc. only as fast as it could physically get to you. It took days, weeks or months to learn ...

Is it naïve of us to think we can ever be perfectly secure? Whether it’s physically or digitally there is always a risk that something bad is going to happen. To protect ourselves physically we install alarms, locks, buy safe cars, have automatic lights, cameras, firearms, ...
