Twitter has turned into an absolute dumpster fire. Nice to know this place is still here @jerry, hopefully there's a few people active here that do that infosec thing.
So I get 10+ calls per week from "debt collectors" asking for some dude with a similar name to mine...
So I started taking their calls and getting name/numbers for them. Then telling them my info is on-file with my debt agent [INSERT PREVIOUS SCAMMER INFO] and they should contact him.
Good way to burn ~2 hours /week. Just doing my civic duty.
It was kind of a coming out party for me this week as I make my transition out of a sales-type role into a marketing type one at Check Point. Both the community I helped create in 2005 (CPUG) and the one I am building (CheckMates) were at this year's CPX.
And yes, I was wearing a CPUG shirt in the CheckMates booth.
I don't plan to shill for Check Point that often here, but if you happen to be at #CPX17 this week, I'll be there.
