The Calm Before the Storm

It’s Friday.  The Friday before the storm which is known as the convergence of RSA Conference and Security B-Sides upon an unsuspecting San Francisco.

There is a lot going on next week – you don’t want to miss Ray Potter’s talk on Wednesday at noon, discussing ‘Crypto for Constrained Devices’ with the one-and-only Whit Diffie.  You also don’t want to miss the exhibition halls.  Yeah, plural.  Judging by the floor plans, this might be the biggest RSA Conference yet!  By the way, if you see a SafeLogic branded football spiraling overhead, it’s fair game to intercept and keep it.  We’ve got more.

TrustyCon has an agenda planned for Thursday, piggybacking off the controversy surrounding RSA Security.  (Should we remind you again that the conference is not managed by that big, evil empire security company of the same name?)  Meanwhile, B-Sides had a controversy of their own – something about Valerie and Violet and I’m not exactly sure what.  Should be a very interesting show as well – just remember to bring both white and black hats, so you’re prepared for anything.

Here at SafeLogic, we’ve got a few surprises and good times planned… some of you have already heard about our hospitality suite… so if you’re going to be in San Francisco next week, drop us a note.  We’d love to see you!

Lee Kestler Joins SafeLogic Advisory Board

I’m very pleased to announce that Lee Kestler has joined the SafeLogic advisory board.

If you’re looking for the official statement, you should check out the press release. These are my thoughts, unfiltered, about bringing Lee into the fold.photo

I’ve known Lee for over 10 years, going back to my days at Cisco. Since then he’s been a trusted colleague.  He’s one of the most honest and humble people I know, and he’s one of my Go-To guys when it comes to business development, building relationships, and asking tough questions.

Above all that, he’s a friend. Always willing to help, give advice, be a mentor, and share thoughts without asking for anything in return. I’ve always enjoyed our business conversations, and each one has given me something to ponder. I’m so happy we could make this advisory position official!

Lee, it’s great to have you on the team. Thank you for everything that you’ve already contributed, and I’m looking forward to growing SafeLogic, disrupting new areas, and kicking ass with you.

Let’s do this!
