The other day I got a message from someone who looked at my blog and said something to the effect of:
“It looks dead. The last post was from the middle of 2020.”
What Captain Obvious didn’t actually realize is that what goes – or rather, went – on this blog is a subset of the emails I write every day to the list you’re asked to join in that annoying drop-down…
…and from the box on the main page…
…and from this form right over here: —>>>
Yeah. That one.
Because if you’re really interested in what I have to say, that’s where to go to hear it. I write at least one email a day about security architecture, leading a security program, risks, industry issues and trends or whatever else happens to tickle my fancy.
It’s true. There are days when… *gasp* there aren’t any emails.
But those days are rare, and they normally involve either a super-hectic meeting schedule, travel, or some other unexpected thing that side-tracked me.
So, sign up for the emails and get posts like the rest of what’s on this blog in your inbox almost every day…
…or read the back issues of the emails I’ve decided to post to the blog…
…or just don’t.
Doesn’t matter much to me.
Maybe at some stage I’ll reactivate the blog and post cherry-picked emails again.
All I know is that my priorities have changed, I couldn’t really care all that much about social media these days, and if anyone is looking to get a different take on SABSA®, security architecture or even about building and running a business-driven and risk-based enterprise-wide security program…
…then those people generally know how to find me.
And a lot of those people are on the email list.
So, the question now is:
Why aren’t you?
And if the answer is, “I don’t know”…
…or the answer is, “I don’t like getting a lot of emails”…
Otherwise, sign up. Get the emails. And laugh a little bit now and again about the stuff we obsess over in security…
…just like a whole bunch of other people are doing every single day.
Including this one.
