Me and my job
How do you explain your job to non-technical people?I'd say that I'm the person where the "buck stops here." My semi-official role is to be risk mitigator of a network that contains sensitive information. In that role I try to also influence my industry and peers to do a better job. In the past, I've been chair of the Technology Committee of the California CPA Society, and used my time to educate fellow certified public accountants on the risk of running systems with full administrative rights. I set up the website threatcode.com to help educate fellow technical CPAs and assist in getting vendors to change their ways.
