Greetings from Arizona!

Is it Tuesday already? I’ve lost track of the days…I’ve been here at the CSI NetSec conference since Friday, giving Chris Grillo’s and my “Handling Complex and Difficult Information Security and Privacy Issues” pre-conference seminar on Saturday and Sunday.
We had 16 outstanding participants from a wide range of industries, including government, technology, and retail, just to name a few. I love having this variety; it leads to very good discussions and increased understanding of what information assurance practitioners are dealing with. Thanks again to those of you who attended; your interaction was fantastic!

The first day of the NetSec conference yesterday was a blur. I, and many others, were surprised to hear that this is the last year for NetSec. CSI announced they decided to do more regional meetings, such as they’ve been doing this year,instead. It will be strange to those of us who have attended NetSec annually for many years not to have it on our calendar any more.
They will still have the annual conference in November.
I guess we shall see when that event arrives whether or not they will continue it beyond this year.
