Hackers are winning the perimeter security battle. The more complex the perimeter security defenses become, the more vulnerabilities there are to exploit! You have to have a  holistic security plan that includes perimeter defense, Detection, Containment, investigation, corporate policies, Access Controls, etc!

I just finished an excellent course at MIT's Sloan business school on Business/Systems Dynamics. Systems Dynamics is a set of tools and a methodology for modeling and understanding the structure and dynamics of complex systems.

We build mental models of the world around us, from the simple mapping that tells us that the shape we are seeing is a tree to more complex models of how processes in our society work or the dynamics of a part of our business.

The problem is that our mental models of the more complex systems are often wrong on various details for a variety of reasons. These can stem from a variety of things such as bias, attribution error, widely held misconceptions, etc.

Systems dynamics addresses this by providing a modeling structure for mapping these complex dynamic processes so that they can be more easily understood. Once you study it you will shake your head and wonder why we as a society, as a country and as business people make major changes and decisions without following such a process first.

If you are interested John Sterman (Director of MIT's Systems Dynamics Group) has an excellent book on the subject: Business Dynamics - Systems Thinking and Modeling for a Complex World

Hiking in Boulder Colorado. If i was a little younger I would not have been able to resist climbing this. Now I am content to just check it out and enjoy the hike!

I made a great Ebay purchase on a high end PC. Saturday around 6pm there was not much activity on EBAY and there were some great deals. I think it was the 3 day weekend that had everyone busy.

Roja Mexican Grill + Margarita Bar West
17010 Wright Plaza #100, Omaha, NE 68130
I ate at Roja last night. I had the #10 Del Mar which was a mixed seafood/mexican plate. VERY good tasting although my wife thought the Shrimp were too spicy. I really enjoyed the dish. Happy with the experience. A nice place. I drive by it alot as it is near the gym but usually it is to crowded. Last night was perfect.
