Incident Response is an interesting life, it's certainly not a role. But what makes it truly interesting is when it exists in your life as a Jekyll an Hyde arrangement where you are working from either end of the spectrum and trying to make the ends meet in the middle. As a member of the SANS Internet Storm Center, and as a head of a team within a financial services company, it is interesting to see the majorly sharp end of what incidents bring and how that can impact a global organisation which has more systems on their network than the number of people who live in a Modesto, California.

In a mirror of one to the other, the ISC has recently welcomed aboard two new Handlers, and welcome from me to Chris and Richard, and two new Handlers to my day job team, and a thanks to Andy, and Conor.

At the ISC we've also had a change of boss. Marc Sachs has handed over the keys to the Internet to allow him to spend the time he needs with his new job, and we'll hopefully catch up soon to have another beer, and talk about the latest pictures of failed embedded Windows systems he's found.
