One former boss says I was his, "Don Draper" Another former boss claims I have expertise in "guerilla marketing," and the very French CEO of that same company says, "Quinton... you peddle hard"
I'm not sure about these things, but one of my primary corporate assets is surely my fierce conversational style.
Information security, network security, cyber security stuff is kinda my jam. I'm pretty sure teh Internets have never been as wild west they be today, nation state actions and industrial grade cyber criminals, organized crime participation in various hijinks, identity such a complex topic, increasingly meaningful and high stakes services lurking behind simple web auth, the median Internet citizen new in understanding risks and the ever evolving threatscape...
Its an exciting time to be a security industry person.
