The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us in ways that we didn’t foresee, and some of the most notably affected are teachers and parents. Teachers are more than necessary employees and are being forced to completely turn their lives upside down to continue education. With school and daycare closures, parents are not only juggling how to … Continue reading Parent-Teacher Conference: Staying Safe Online in COVID-19
Read at your own RISK
Image above is from one of my lighting designs in college. Post Cambridge-Analytica scandal, Risk has been on the minds of a lot of people, security pros and non-techies alike. More vendors are touting their risk “capabilities” (especially around third-party) and the ones who actually do TPRM are even more bullish about it – and … Continue reading Read at your own RISK
What Hidden Figures Taught Me About AI
**It must be stated that I am NOT demeaning the actual intent of the movie in this blog. The true meaning of this lovely film is of course the story about three phenomenal women who beat all the odds, and I would never intend to take away from that. This is simply another spin that I took … Continue reading What Hidden Figures Taught Me About AI
Shivering with Microsegmen……..tation
Did she *really* just make a techy Rocky Horror joke? Dammit, Janet – she sure did. I had the opportunity to attend Security Field Day (#XFD2 for you Twitter followers out there) a couple weeks ago and I have to admit, I was a little overwhelmed at first. I was feeling a bit…. Done in. Couldn’t … Continue reading Shivering with Microsegmen……..tation
From the Stage to Security – Why I Got my Degree in the Arts
When I started my career in technology I didn't know a switch from a server. Goodness, my exposure to technology was strictly around personal devices and whatever theatrical technology we were using (lighting consoles, etc.) Now, I've grown up with the internet and computers, but it was all end-user accounts - I had no idea … Continue reading From the Stage to Security – Why I Got my Degree in the Arts
Take it to the Bank – Security in the Cloud
Anyone who knows how to work a computer has heard the term "Cloud." It's beyond a disruption at this point and has almost become a standard in both our personal and professional lives. Even if you don't quite understand what it is, you know about it, and you probably use it too. Because of the … Continue reading Take it to the Bank – Security in the Cloud
Do you “brush off” Cyber Security?
I don't know about you, but I really hate going to the dentist. If you were wondering why I put "brush off" in quotations, it's because it was a dental pun. Yeah, it's gonna get a bit cheeky. I've never really been a fan of doctors' offices, but something about the dentist is especially unnerving. … Continue reading Do you “brush off” Cyber Security?
Cyber Security Awareness is Your Seatbelt
In light of the recent KRACK attack, National Cyber Security Awareness Month, and it being the year anniversary month of the crazy Dyn attack - I figured discussing the Internet of Things and the security around them would be a great topic for the official launch of TriciaKicksSaaS! Woohoo! Thanks for stopping by. Those of … Continue reading Cyber Security Awareness is Your Seatbelt
Batman, Batman, Where Art Thou?
Batman has always been my favorite superhero. If the car isn't enough, his dark brooding persona solidifies it. I think I pretty much nailed it in 2011. Just look at those glasses. The coolest thing about him is that he was just a regular guy with a sick cape. He wasn't an alien, he wasn't … Continue reading Batman, Batman, Where Art Thou?
The Art of Innovation Vs. Protection
"Museum Visitors Damage 800-Year-Old Coffin by Putting Child in It for Photo" "Oops! A Gallery Selfie-Gone Wrong Causes $200.000 in Damage" "Whoops! When Museum Visitors Get Touchy-Feely With the Exhibits and Unleash Mayhem" Yes, these are real articles in the New York Times. Yes, these are real things that are happening out there. TL;DR here … Continue reading The Art of Innovation Vs. Protection
