#phishing #infosec short post

Phishing has gotten more sophisticated over the years. Spelling and grammar has gotten better making phishing attempts more difficult to spot. There are some out there who did not get the memo and very easy to spot.

You still need to be diligent. If you are not sure it’s secure, don’t click any links and don’t open any attachments.

An enhancement I would love to see in Business class lounges. @aeroflot @icelandair @AmericanAir @KLM @airfrance @british_airways

It goes without saying I spend way too much time traveling and fortunately, most of the time I can fly myself in my 1948 Navion when the hop is less then 1,000 nautical miles.

Now quite frankly I love the travel, seeing different cities and countries, learning about different cultures and making new friends all over the world. However there is one thing that I really don’t enjoy. Multi-hour layovers (I think my record layover was over 11 hours in Moscow), they are a fact of life and to be honest, y’all have great lounges to make the wait more tolerable. There is one enhancement I believe a large part of your customer base will take advantage of.

Please give us a place to exercise. I’m not talking about a full blown gym, but a room with some exercise equipment where we can, well exercise during a layover. I would definitely take advantage of a gym. As another advantage y’all would be promoting good heath for your customers.

Thanks, –Rob

Upcoming speaking engagements two confirmed #oow16 #ecoug16 three waiting #bgoug, #rmoug and ???

The fall is filling out fast. I will be speaking at Oracle Open World 2016 on Holistic Database Security. Then speaking in November at the East Coast Oracle User Group on Holistic Database Security.

I currently have papers in to Bulgarian Oracle Users Group Autumn Conference November 11 – 13  on Holistic Database Security, Transparent Data Encryption and PL/SQL Secure Coding practices. I have heard many fine things about BGOUG conference. Everyone I have spoken to who’s been there can’t wait to go back.

I have also submitted to Rocky Mountain Oracle Users Group February 7 – 9 on Holistic Database Security and PL/SQL Secure Coding practices. RMOUG is the largest grass roots Oracle Users Group out there and every year they put on a wonderful conference.

Now, I’ve been told there will be a security conference coming in Rovaniemi Finland next year. Once I have more details, I’ll submit abstracts for that.
