My name is Laurel, and how this blog came about is a little convoluted.

First, I moved to Texas in March, 2012. Hmm. Doesn’t sound like that applies. After the move, I thought I would take a couple of months off before I started looking for a job. I had some projects that I wanted to finish before I went back to work; one of my goals included passing the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) exam. I was about two-thirds of the way through the book when I asked myself if there was a better way to study for the test.

I came up with the idea of giving a presentation about information privacy at the library; which immediately led to panic. What was I going to talk about?

So I came up with the idea of a blog on information privacy to help me clarify my thoughts and as a place for people to find tips on how to keep their private data private.

I hope you find it useful!

PS: I’m happy to report that I passed the CISSP exam on June 13, 2013!

December 27, 2013

I started a new job in late July, and it has been very time consuming. I spend a couple of hours being stuck in traffic every day. I’m hoping the traffic issue will improve when we move in February.

I like blogging about security and privacy issues, and I have missed writing this blog. My goal for the new year is at least 1 post per week in 2014.
