Mid January Roundup

Filed under: Links,Log Analysis,Visualization — @ 17th of January 2011, 09:00

The last couple of months have been pretty busy. I have been really bad about updating my personal blog here, but I have not been lazy. Among other things, I have been traveling a lot to attend a number of conferences. Here is a little summary of what’s been going on:

  • I posted a blog entry on secviz about my security visualization predictions for 2011. It’s a bit of a gloomy forecast, but check it out.
  • The Security visualization predictions post was motivated by a panel I was on at the SANS Incident Detection Summit in D.C. early December. Here are the slides for my panel discussion.
  • One of the topics I have been talking about lately is Cloud Security. The slides linked here are from a presentation I gave in Mexico.
  • The topic of cloud security and also cloud risk management is one that I have been discussing on my new blog over at Infoboom.
  • I have recorded a couple of pod casts in the last months also. One was the CloudChaser podcast where we talked about Logging Challenges and Logging in the Cloud.
  • The other pod cast I recorded was together with Kord and Gary for The Cloud Computing Show. We talked about all kinds of things. Mainly about Loggly and logging in the cloud. Here the mp3.
  • I also dug out the log maturity scale again. After mentioning it at the SANS logging summit, I got a lot of great responses on it.
  • The other day, one of my Google alerts surfaced this DefCon video of me talking about security visualization. It’s probably one of my first conference appearances. Is it?
  • And finally, 2011 started with a trip to Kauai where I presented a paper on insider threat visualization. Unfortunately, the paper is not publicly available. Email me if you want a copy.

As you are probably aware, you find my speaking schedule and slides on my personal page. That’s a good way of tracking me down. And in case you haven’t found it yet, I have a slideshare account where I try to share my presentations as well.

Old Posts – New Home

Filed under: Links — @ 5th of June 2010, 17:00

history-idThe other day I was searching for some articles that I wrote a while back. For the life of it, I couldn’t find them. I then remembered that I published those articles as blog posts on my fomer employer’s Web site. Well, they have been taken down in the meantime. Too bad, there was some good stuff in there.

I therefore decided that I would revive my old blog posts and post them here on my personal blog. I will try to update them instead of just blindly pasting them in here.

I hope you will find the content useful. The first piece on Monday is going to be one of my favorite posts on the “Maturity Scale for IT Data Management”. So long, have a good weekend.

Oh, and yes, I changed the look of the page a bit. The font was kind of small and the width was really narrow. Hope this makes it a bit easier to read posts here… As always, feedback welcome at @zrlram
