Don't Plan Because You are Uncertain?

Don't plan for uncertainty until you are certain:

This humor comes too close to reality in many organizations.


I never did post a note here that I finally got all the paperwork in for the CISM.  I passed the test a while back, but it took a bit to follow up with the paperwork.  One challenge I see is that it is much more limited about what will qualify for CPEs. 

I listen to a lot of podcasts and while the CISSP allows those, the CISM appear to not count them.  Going and sleeping through a conference is fine as long as you have the piece of paper at the end.  I will have to keep my eye out for valid outlets to keep this updated.  Fortunately it looks like the classes I teach will help, so I may not have as hard a time as it seemed at first.

Good thoughts in the latest Salted Hash commentary.

The danger is that so many fail to realize that things like this have great potential for abuse, especially of those with low personal restraint.  Anything could become a national security issue and could justify spying.  It is quite dangerous to trust government to protect us in all areas.
