After working on my own projects for a couple of months - I started helping some of my friends in exchange for income....
- I'm doing consulting for a manufacturing company that I'm very familiar with and they suddenly had their IT Director resigned. They need my help to find a new head of IT - not an easy task - but it's definitely great opportunity to meet new people and see why IT Execs want to change and how different skillets can be presented during interviews
- Also another sudden resignation of IT Security analyst at one of Canadian universities provided me with a part-time opportunity to get up to speed with the most recent tools, attack patters and mitigation techniques.
Doing all these things put me out of "retired" category to "semi-retired" pool. In meantime I'm still working on my own public cloud research projects, considering to attend a couple of upcoming conferences and workshops. And also looking for a dream job that needs to focus on exciting technology not on past IT which is everywhere and touching it doesn't excite me at all.
While I keep posting here for my research articles there is a new venue - I'm glad to announce that
have accepted my application as community blogger that I hope provides be with bigger audience and most importantly feedback on the industry landscape.
My first blog is published here
and inspired my work on Security tools with my new client.
