I'm trying to go independent. I've gotten an office, I'm starting to incorporate, and I've been busy with the chores of opening my own business. It is entirely rewarding and exciting, yet scary and never-wracking at the same time. I'll try to keep the site updated with my progress.
I ran across this link the other day, I think it was just before Thanksgiving.
Like most security warriors, you get asked to look at the computers of relatives. SANS asked what we bring when we're visiting relatives then compiled the results.
Enjoy, and enjoy the holidays.
