My Website is down. I mean crushed and down. Nothing shows up except for a few Greek characters and there's no way I can recover it. I know because I've tried, my hosting service has tried, and I'm not as technically adept as I'd like to be. Instead of wallowing in my despair - as I did enough...

It occurred to me at a conference in Louisville that security isn’t an issue specific to businesses. In fact, most businesses are less secure than large conferences because of one simple reason - the staff at conferences are trained to examine the credentials of every person at...

Hillary Clinton puzzles me. She seems really smart - in the same way her husband/president was smart. But maybe she’s missing that gene that gives some smart people common sense. It’s a theory that the more books you read - and the more degrees you have - the less common sense you...

Everyone freaks out because their home might not be secure. They have belongings inside that have value to a thief - and of course them. And keeping the actual property locked up and safe is the struggle they face on a regular basis.

It’s similar...

I’m regularly baffled by the incongruous nature of security in this country. We seemingly don’t have a set of standards - or even common sense - when it comes to locking down our valuable data assets and letting others remain accessible.

As you've probably noticed, we've been putting on a regular #ITKESecurity Twitter chat about once a month. The goal of the chat is to answer some of the questions you might have regarding security issues.

When you read about someone getting pins in their body, you immediately think about a broken bone and the procedure needed to repair it. In the medical field, we’re now hearing about pins in another way…as a security device.

Not rubbing it in, but I recently spent a little time where it's warm. Specifically on the Gulf coast of Florida. That's not a security topic, but what happened when I was on the island offers a lesson in keeping your eyes open if you want to remain safe. The town of Sanibel Island, FL is - as...

Data, Mobile, Security, Technology

I got a lot of feedback for my last column of 2014 and not all of it was complimentary. You see, some of the theories I shared and opinions I voiced were based on a decade of being an early adopter of new technology. It placed me in a land where my perspective was polluted because I...
