    October 2013 is National Cyber Security Awareness Month! Lots to digest, report on and stories to file. Reporters I've worked with have told me candidly that I'm a "good source" and someone they can depend on for "quotable quotes" that inform and enlighten without overtly plugging my business. Check me out on LinkedIn or read my ProfNetConnect bio for more on me.

As IT security diva Joan Rivers famously said; "Can we talk?"
