Good morning, everybody. How you doing today little off time today? Cuz you can see on the blog here at Las Vegas to the time but still a challenge to figure out to get purely on time is the normal 9 a.m. Eastern with Mark episodes were almost a hundred and very exciting a good time to look back.

Now on this week a good friend of mine told me something a suggestion. I know we're having a discussion to have suggested. It was fantastic and she said you should probably do some markham's the video something around the basics of cybersecurity some basic definition of vocabulary basic principles, you know 1 + 101 because it's really hard to get up to speed.

And I thought okay and you know so that I said surely that can't be right. You may ask who surely that's not important. What's important is she was right? There is not an easily accessible and common parlance easily relatable set of cyber security Basics. There's a lot of stuff out there around the basics a lot of his word and you know college-level language which even when you're in college was not useful.

It's all added complexity. It's all I'm really set up to make it seem like it's a lot more than it should be. I'm a huge fan. You guys know this by now, I'm turning on the volume between an hour podcast. I'm a huge fan of just making it relatable making a basic because I don't think cybersecurity needs to be as crazy and complicated as we've made it.

I think a lot of that relieve back to people build the technology but it goes all the way through. To operational security like yesterday's episode everything around security has a layer of complexity when it comes to the usability when it comes to the how we discuss this stuff that makes it Mostly complicated and need to sleep difficult and it discourages people from joining in it discourages people from being active participants in their own security.

It's not needed at all. So after his conversation with my friend I am I kind of opened my eyes with a little bit of a different Viewpoint am especially here black cat walking around the show floor titles tracking everything on social having a interviews with journalist. I was kind of disappointed and there's a lot of great info on was a lot of waiting for the laundry stuff going on.

But what I was disappointed it was extremely is a massive barrier-to-entry here for a discipline. That should be as mature as ours at this point. That's unacceptable. We should not have a barrier. High for people to get in for people to participate for people to be understanding and I don't understand what's going on.

Especially given how we keep spouting us Securities. Everybody's responsibility. If is everybody's responsibility and everybody is here because they're all on sorts of different discipline. So if everybody's at a reasonable level and then we make the barrier to entry I'm 10 levels above where everybody else is. How does that align with our desired outcome of making everybody responsible for their own security just doesn't so I thought that was really enlightening in for myself.

I know I fall victim to it because I've been in this profession for a very long time review on the podcast or spared the ever-increasing patch of gray and white I don't throw my hair another reason why you always see me generally clean-shaven. It's easy to become cynical as you become better.

I fought really hard against doing that I have but one thing that I was kind of why do in this conversation took with my friend woke me up to was that yeah, we made it really hard to get started. None of just as a cybersecurity practitioner, but just as anybody to understand this stuff and I know a lot of my media work out of my check call-in sings.

I got try to talk to a general audience. I tried to make that fridge but there's a huge body of work that this there's no easy bridge in so I'm putting some help learning how to how to tackle. So I mentioned yesterday reiterated Barrel chicken fries pause on ones with Mark because I'm on a vacation for the next week in a bit which is wonderful and finally getting some nice disconnected downtime.

But when I come back I'm going to do a series on basics for lighting the basics of cybersecurity what we're doing why we're doing it. I'm in relatable easy to understand. That will obviously I'm trickle into mornings with Mark. I'm I think I'm hoping that will be another product in a little more polish format that maybe I can publish under the Trend Micro handle War.

I under my own will really figure out where that best fits, but look for a bunch of that content coming through on mornings with Mark but also in a more polished answer the digestible video bytes for maybe some cool funky web presentation. So I'm very I'm interesting things from putting.

Cool yesterday on on the breakdown of Comedy start for the way. They're presented that visually and was really compelling it made of material really relatable. Don't play around with the format a bit. But the end goal is to accomplish what my friend said there was a gap for which is not you're not having that easily relatable stuff for people who are not cybersecurity professionals.

But also it'll help cybersecurity professionals. We're just getting started which I know from your comments. I'm out in the audience. That's something challenging for everybody. So you think let me know. Hit me up online. I'm at Mark NCAA for the blog in the comments down. As always my email me at Mark Andy.

See, it's me at Marquette. CA how do you help bridge that Gap not restarting cybersecurity professionals, but for everybody how do you get the basics related to them to use analogies? Do you give it to them in any currently publish set of stuff, which is way too complicated. What's your experience? Let me know.

I hope you have a fantastic day and a fantastic next week and a bit. I will see you back later on in the month. I will be lately on Twitter, Iowa on vacation, but it's more personal fun than work. But I hope your are set up to take a little bit of downtime to will talk to you soon.

Have a good one. Good morning, everybody. How you doing today little off time today?
