How did you get into security? I came from the physics field to begin with. I jumped in here about 11 years ago. I started as a programmer — Visual Basic, web applications, that sort of thing, and decided after a year or so that I didn’t enjoy that. So I switched over to IT administration…and from there started doing system administration and part of that has to be security. I just sort of moved more and more and taught myself more and more about security as part of system administration. I just took an interest in it.

When pondering the top information security thinkers of the year, a slew of names came to the minds of our editorial staff. In considering who we wanted highlighted in this issue’s end-of-the-year wrap-up, as well as what main themes of 2005 we thought worth rehashing, we had to think about how IT security was being viewed, what people and issues were helping to push associated issues forward, and how this year’s happenings will affect the industry’s future.

I had worked first in physical security and then in law enforcement since I was 18 years-old. But I got tired of getting shot at, literally. So I decided to do something more sedate. I worked on officers' computers. I went into a computer helpdesk role back in 2000. I had the joy of finding out that you could do computers and security and I have never looked back.

I got into security in the 80s. Auditors came in and you would have the technology group managing passwords on the mainframe. They asked for a separation of duties. QA was the independent group and we became the security guys.

What can software asset management do for me?

What can software asset management do for me?

‘It is an irony of modern business that directors pay more attention to the control of assets such as company cars than they do to the management of business critical investments such as IT.’ So says George Cox, director of the IOD. An irony that deepens further still when you realize that many organizations spend more each year on software than they do on their vehicle fleets.
