Having one of those “I don’t think I can do this for 20 more years” kind of days/weeks/months. I hope all of you are doing well.

I know the feeling well. I have a name for it: Normal Ops

@jerry Hang in there. You're not going to be CISOing your way through a pandemic driving millions more people to work and play remotely for more than 1 or 2 of those 20.

I hope.

@FlyingLawyer the pandemic is certainly part of it, but it’s an all around tough job.

@jerry Of that, I am sure. But don't lose sight of the significance of that job in the context of this pandemic either. As those of us who work in data breach response know, this pandemic has been a boon for those who would prefer to exploit bad security practices rather than fix or prevent them. You make choices every day that make it less likely someone around the world will get popped tomorrow. That's a really cool thing.
