I’ve left Verizon. A lot of folks have come up to me and asked, so I thought I’d indulge in a rather self-important blog-post and explain something:
It wasn’t about Verizon, but about the opportunity I’ve taken.
Wade, Chris, Hylender, Marc, Joe, Dave, Dr. Tippett & all the rest – they were all really, really great to me. I love the RISK team. Loved my job. But the opportunity came up to do something, well, awesome. So I left a great group and joined a financial institution as Director of Operational Risk. If you ever get offered a chance to work for Wade at
Verizon Terremark, I HIGHLY recommend it.
I’m looking forward to the change, and I’m looking forward to re-aligning my priorities. Now that BlackHat & Defcon are over, now that Metricon is behind me, I’ve already started to scale back on SIRA management, reduced my role in the CSDM, and am in a refocusing phase. I’ve missed blogging, and as I charge forward in “the real world” hope to share some scars and successes with you in this medium (data-driven, of course).
