ICYMI Nov 10 – Weekly Rewind – 3 questions


Business man cover face with question  board

Welcome to the weekly rewind – a chance to play last week again.

This is my latest attempt to figure out the right way to blend various writing efforts — now spreading over more platforms — together. It also captures the content I shared last week in one convenient place. I’ll try this for a few weeks – feedback welcomed!

I’ll include some notes about what I’m working on below, too. Check ‘em out.

An invitation

A new series I’m hosting launches this week.

If you’re struggling to adopt the “assume breach” mindset and adapt the appropriate actions, then the new series I’m kicking off this week is for you. Hosted by Damballa, it’s a 5-part journey of education, insight, and cutting through the noise to explore what it takes to be successful running a security program based on prevention, detection, and response.

Sign up and join me for the series:

Curated: The articles I shared via social media

I generally share 3-5 articles each day through social media (twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn). RIght now my Facebook account is my personal account. I guess I either need to open that up, or transition over to an author page (it’s setup, I just don’t use it).

I tend to share concepts about communication, value, measurement, and performance — insights into ourselves, ways for us to grow and improve.

Here is the list of what I curated and shared last week.

What I’m working on – opportunities

My business is getting more focused; turns out it’s growing, too. I’ve got some ideas planned for the coming year – and it includes a new website. I’ll work to pepper in some updates as we continue to journey together.

I work with enterprise and select vendors to take friction out of communication, connect people to value. As such, I often get the opportunity to help both cut through the noise and get the results they need.

The invitation to join me for the 5-part series with Damballa is above. This series uses a format I’ve been working on over the last year. I’m excited about the series, and look forward to share more information on the approach soon!

In addition, I’m working on launching an advisor program. With a limited number of openings, it’s an opportunity for leaders to get a “catalyst-on-demand” that focuses on friction, transformation, value, measurement, and effective communication — for security, and beyond.

More on these and a few other things I’m working on coming soon!
