12 Aug 2013 Security Manager's Journal: Learning to Let Go and Offshore [32419]
ComputerWorld, August 12th, 2013

"I have shunned offshoring and have written about my concerns in the past. But I worked for a different company when I shared those thoughts, and years have passed since that time. When my current employer started sending some IT activities to an office in India, I was more satisfied than I was in the past that security was being well addressed.

InfoWorld, July 15th, 2013

"A few years ago, I wrote a somewhat tongue-in-cheek piece detailing nine traits of the veteran Unix admin. It enjoyed quite a reception and sparked all kinds of debate across the Internet, with people discussing each trait point by point and sparking skirmishes between rival factions. Since then, I've thought about giving network admins the same treatment, but never got around to it. It seems that this is the week.

  • We already know it's down
  • If we don't know it's down, it's probably not down
  • We will ping and test several times before digging into the problem
  • Believe it or not, we've tried turning it off and back on again
  • During an outage, we're not just staring at the screen -- we're following a path in our heads
  • We calculate subnet masks and CIDR as easily as breathing
  • We do not tolerate bugs; they are of the devil
