Well, not quite, but it isn’t far from the truth.
A few months ago I was approached by a security vendor to see if I would be willing to join them as a Security Advocate, a first of its kind position int heir company. I was referred to them by my old chum and average friend, Javvad Malik (@j4vv4d), so naturally I was very suspicious and asked them to get off the line as I was expecting a very important call.
Once the initial confusion was worked out, I discussed the role, and over the course of a weekend came to the conclusion that this was not only a great opportunity but great timing too. 2020 has been tough on everyone, and running a new business in this environment has been challenging at best. Thankfully, after reaching this decision and following a number of weeks of interviews culminating in an online presentation by me, they reached the same decision that I should join their company.
So, as of Monday 30th November 2020, (TL)2 Security Ltd will be on hiatus for the foreseeable future as I take on the Security Advocate role for Sentinel One. My new employers are very happy for me to see any outstanding work through to completion, and of course, this blog, Host unknown and The Lost CISO will all be continuing.
I also want to take this opportunity to all of my clients (even those of you who took three months to pay me, you know who you are…) to say thank you for your trust in me and for the opportunity to work with you and your wonderful companies. To say I had a blast would be an understatement.
For now, though, it is exciting times ahead, to be sure.
