Death Star Threat Modeling (Part II)

Here’s Part II of Kevin’s excellent session on Threat Modeling: Death Star Threat Modeling (Part II)


Favre Watch 2008 Continues…

Okay….what the heck is going on???!!! I apparently wasn’t paying enough attention to this whole thing. It was my understanding that Brett Favre asked for reinstatement, the Packers offered him options to tryout, he refused and then he wanted his release. I was angry at Favre thinking he didn’t want to come back to Green…


The FBI Celebrates it’s 100th Anniversary!

I had the distinct honor this week, of attending the Bureau’s 100th Anniversary celebration event here at the Dallas FBI Field Office. (I’m the one that’s not blurry in the picture on the left) The event itself was very well done and the speeches by both Special Agent in Charge Casey and by Sen. Kay…


Back from vacation!

Sorry for the long delay, but I’ve been on vacation and my wife is pretty adamant about me not checking email, posting blog entries, etc. I don’t think I need a break, but apparently I was wrong, so I took about 8 days of vacation. Of course, there are about a bunch of things I…


Why We (and you) Will Miss BillG

Books of the Month Club….I read a lot

When I’m sitting on a plane and they tell me to "turn off anything with an on/off power button"…it hurts. So then I pull out a book and read. As much as I fly, I read a lot. Often I’m catching up on one the many, many trade magazines to which I subscribe (CSO Magazine,…


Rumors of my demise are greatly exaggerated…

Well, I know it’s been awhile….but I’m back. Several of you were kind enough to send me gentle reminders that I have been neglecting my blog, and were worried that I may indeed have dropped off the face of the Earth. Not so. Where Have You Been, Kai? In a nutshell……traveling like you would never…


Is Kai Axford Speaking at TechEd 2008?

The short answer is YES! However, I’m not going to be confined to a single breakout room like I was last year. (ESPNism: “You cannot stop him, you can only hope to contain him.”) If you remember, we had such a huge amount of folks wanting to get into the session I did with the…

RSA 2008 – Day Last: Underground Online Crime

Well, I’m sorry for the delay in posting, but I didn’t get home until after 10:30PM on Friday night, but American Airlines did get me home and given the issues with the MD-80s recently, I’m just happy to have made it. Even got bumped to First Class which is always nice. I had the chance…
