Pretty sparse about page. I spread some details on https://en.gravatar.com/fsmontenegro, but basically I’m a long-time security professional with a history of working at vendors, either as a professional services resource or as a sales engineer.
I shouldn’t have to mention it, but opinions here are my own, not of any employer or association I may be a member of.
Why I choose to blog
I strongly believe in self-improvement, self-education. This blog is an attempt at tracking some information and sharing with others. I hope it helps…
Also, I want to participate in the broader conversations we’re having. That being said, there’s a lot of content out there on the topics I feel like writing about. One of my fears is that anything I write will not be of use to people, since there is likely better content out there. Bear with me…
Still, I don’t know of another way to participate in the discussion: commenting on existing posts only goes so far, and there’s times when I want to take the topic in a different direction than the post I’m commenting on…
What I promise is this: I’ll dutifully cite other content I think relevant, keep an open mind to feedback (particularly pointing me to areas of improvement), and always be respectful to commenters, sources and, hopefully, English grammar 🙂 (‘English not first language’ warning applies here…)
I love quotes. Two that resonate really well with me are:
“Per ardua, ad astra” (motto of the Royal Air Force)
“Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better” (Jim Rohn, motivational speaker).
