Mr. Consumerized Mobility

Here’s how I roll …. and yes, I am a very serious security professional. I believe that consumer devices and BYOD is at least as secure as current Enterprise IT practices in most organizations today.

Here I am working … smoking a cigar, in my backyard, on a MacBook Air 11″ … with a virtual desktop for my work apps and data, plus corporate email, calendar, contacts and IM running on the MBA. Corporate services are based off Exchange Server, like most. Works well and I don’t have to put up with a clunky HP corporate laptop offering.

And this is how I roll most any day I’m working, whether in my physical office or on the road somewhere.

Eric's "office"

I love mobility, BYOD, cloud, and consumer IT!

Yep, security heretic here. Good thing I’m the boss!


About Eric Cowperthwaite

Nearly 30 year security professional, 11 years in the US Army, and another 18 in the civilian world. Worked for EDS for 9 years, then for Providence Health & Services as their CSO for 7 years. Now I work for CORE Security as their VP, Advanced Security & Strategy. This blog is not just about security, either physical or information. You can expect to read about cigars, my life, things I think are funny and much more. And I will rail about the FUD that so many security practitioners toss around on a regular basis. Plus, once in a great while, I might actually share a thought or two about security. Did I mention that I will probably blog about cigars? Just to be clear, nothing that I write here represents the position or opinion of my employer. Nothing I write here is proprietary or confidential to my employer. Everything I write here is my personal opinion.
