Updates and what’s coming up..

As mentioned in my McAfee post, I’d meant to produce a quick update post covering recent goings on and what’s coming up as my blog updates have been a little erratic over the last few months..

Life has been pretty busy, on top of work, getting married and a couple of honeymoons I now officially have my Masters in ‘Distributed Systems and Networks’!  This is has been a lon while coming as I have been working on my part time MSc for the last 2.5-3 years outside of office hours.  Getting a ‘commended’ result was very pleasing as I expected just a standard ‘pass’.  OK so it’s not a distinction, but still good.

This has also meant my work with the Cloud Security Alliance has slide somewhat this year due to a lack of time.  I’m hoping to get back more involved with that now things will hopefully be slowing down slightly, well apart from the impending house move of course!

Regarding work, I’m still getting to work with some very interesting projects and great technologies some of which I’ll be writing about in upcoming posts.

Talking of upcoming posts, I am at the Gartner Security and Risk Management conference this week, and the Information Security Forum world annual congress in November, both of which should provide some interesting material to share.  I’ll likely try to follow a similar approach to previous conferences and mainly ‘live-blog’ from the talks as they happen.
