“Reality is frequently inaccurate.”

I’m just this guy, you know? I started this blog for all the normal reasons. It is here for me to practice, to learn, to document my mistakes, and to show people who I am.

“Let us not compete on the knowledge of strategies and tactics.
Let us compete on execution.
– Guy Kawasaki, The Macintosh Way

This quote is the driving force behind the blog. I’ve learned from countless other people I’ve worked with, seen on youtube, seen at a conference, and read their blogs. This is my take. The overwhelming theme I’ve seen of the infosec community is sharing. I feel like this distills that theme to its essence. So I hope that if you’re reading this site, something I’ve written can help you, teach you, or inspire you to do great things.

If you’re interested, find me on twitter, @warrenkopp, or check out talks I’ve done below. I’m always looking for constructive feedback, so feel free to let me know your thoughts.
