Podcast Episode 2 is Now Available

In this episode we sit down with Mark Tomallo, from Panopticon Labs, and RSA’s Kevin Flanagan. We discuss mentoring, online crime, choosing infosec as a career and even dig out some tidbits from Mark about online gaming fraud and some of the criminal underground around the gaming industry. I think this is a very interesting and fun episode, so check it out and let us know what you think on Twitter (@microsolved, or @lbhuston). Thanks for listening!

PS – We decided to restart the episode numbers, move to pod bean.com as a hosting company and make the podcast available through iTunes. We felt all of those changes, plus the informal date-based episode titles we were using before made the change a good idea.

See you at the Central Ohio BBB Torch Awards

Today, our team will be pleased to accept the BBB Center for Character Ethics’ Torch Award! We first announced our selection by the committee back in June, and today we are thrilled to spend an afternoon with the fellow winners, our customers, our families and the Central Ohio Community. We are greatly humbled and excited by our selection for the award and we look forward to continuing to live by the same organizational ethics and dedication to customer service in the coming years.

Special thanks today to our families and mentors who taught us to “do the right thing, even when no one is looking” and to all of the customers and clients that have placed their faith in us over the last (soon to be) 20 years. Without all of you, none of this would be possible.

If you can join us for the luncheon today, we look forward to seeing you. If you can’t, we understand, and we’ll be back to work later today, once again laser focused on protecting you and our critical infrastructure. (We’re still leaving the ISOC in capable hands while we gather for the ceremony… :))

As always, thanks so much for reading and for supporting MicroSolved. We love helping you keep your business, your business… 🙂

[UPDATE] – Much love and thanks to those who attended. What a great event! The best part was meeting the young students who wrote essays about ethics, leadership and engagement. Congrats to all of the winners!
