New Start

It has been over a year since I last updated the blog. At that time I was working out of Boston and had a 3 hour one way commute. Needless to say that combined with a demanding job doesn't make for a lot of time for blogging.

I finished that role about a year ago. It was a good one. Essentially I was running the IT infrastructure and security for a investments team with over $100 Billion in assets. We built out a new data center in the middle of downtown Boston, designed and implmented a new network, completely revamped the security design and implementation of the organization, and changed the financial reporting applications along with the assoicated SoD controls. Not a bad roll for two years.

The time and the stress did take a toll though. So being the masochist that I am, I decided I would de-stress by taking a role running the complete PCI program for a Fortune 100 company.  :)

We got our compliant RoC for one of the business units in May and are days away from the same for the rest of the orgnaization.

So... The restart has begun.
