Incidentally Speaking

Posted April 2nd, 2007 by

I’ve had 6 incidents over the past month.  Nothing earth-shattering, but it makes me wonder why so many, when I’ve been relatively quiet incident-wise for the past 6 months.

All things considered, there are 2 reasons why I’m investigating more incidents lately.

First cause is personnel turnover.  We’re a managed services provider, which means operations.  Typically, most of our slots are for entry-level server and network administrators.  We have had a high level of turnover in the past couple of months.

Second cause is me.  People now know to come to me when they suspect a security incident–my shameless internal self-promotion is working somewhat.  That means that out of the 6 incidents, there were really only 3 that were valid, the rest were just suspicious activity.
