+Shawn Tuma dropping knowledge. IT leaders need to consider the real implications of the Target settlement. 
Thanks +Michael Santarcangelo for mentioning me in this excellent article (as I have come to expect from you!).

How you feel when you’re stressed is not a true measure of reality. Just because you’re afraid, doesn’t mean you’re in danger. Just because you feel alone, doesn’t mean nobody loves you. Just because you think you might fail, doesn’t mean you will. Look beyond your doubts and keep searching for the truth. Despite the struggles that you might be facing, never give up on yourself. You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and twice as capable as you have ever imagined. - via:

Thanks to +Shawn Tuma for the validation. More importantly is his insight -- check out the point he makes about our perspective in security versus the additional (and proper) perspective of the court. 

It's food for thought. 

It means we need to have more discussions about authentication as we go forward. 

For now, I'll continue to use TouchID, but I renew my faith in passwords.

What do you think? 

If we incorporate minor fields of study (2 types) into our security programs, will be be better off?
Once upon a time, security was… security. As the field continues to mature, more specialties and areas that require additional knowledge, training and experience emerge.
Is everyone on the team capable of all functions of the team? Should they be?

A contribution with a different concept... 
During your studies, did you have a major? What was it? Along the way, did you select and perhaps enjoy minor courses of study?

A recent article in Fast Company questioned why we leave the notion of majors and minors to formal education. Why not the workplace?

I knew C was the right answer!

Wait, what? 

So... how would you handle this? If you were the buyer, how would you prefer it handled?

I've dabbled in bringing clients to the beach to work with me -- something powerful and remarkable about walking on a beach in bare feet to really get some ideas flowing. 

This article explains how a legend does it. I got a lot of inspiration from this, and resolve to further improve what I'm able to do with my clients in the coming years.

Love this:
"Over the years, I’ve noticed that when I do have a specific reason to ask everyone to set aside their devices (‘Lids down’, in the parlance of my department), it’s as if someone has let fresh air into the room. The conversation brightens, and more recently, there is a sense of relief from many of the students. Multi-tasking is cognitively exhausting — when we do it by choice, being asked to stop can come as a welcome change."

This is the link for the broader event. Plus, it'll be one of my first HOA experiences!
Recently Google announced that HTTPS may be used as a ranking signal for Google Search.

Over the past few months we’ve been running tests taking into account whether sites use secure, encrypted connections as a signal in our search ranking algorithms. We've seen positive results, so we're starting to use HTTPS as a ranking signal. For now it's only a very lightweight signal — affecting fewer than 1% of global queries, and carrying less weight than other signals such as high-quality content — while we give webmasters time to switch to HTTPS. But over time, we may decide to strengthen it, because we’d like to encourage all website owners to switch from HTTP to HTTPS to keep everyone safe on the web. Read the full post here:

Time permitting, host +Mark Vang will demonstrate "packet sniffing" and explain how connecting to sites that use HTTPS protects your information. Mark will also explain why SSL is not a "silver bullet" solution to website security.
