I don't believe that Cyber Security should be sold on fear, the realities are scary enough, lets focus on them instead.

I have worked for the last couple of years as a Security Operations Manager, this has exposed me to many areas of Cyber Security and I have seen various industries taking various approaches to it. I don't think that there is any 'one size fits all' solution, but I can, and hopefully will, share with you some of my thoughts about Cyber Security and events / products pertaining to the industry here.

If you like or don't like anything I say, please, let me know via one of my social channels - twitter is probably best for a speedy response. Unlike many, I love to know when I am wrong, because I can learn from it and be better moving forward!

Email Validation, sort it out!

I use this all the time for a number of reasons, one is that I can set up rules easily to put emails into specific folders, the other, is so that if my email finds its way onto the black market, or a spam network for example, I can tell who is responsible for it getting there.
