How secure is secure enough?

I suppose, you have all seen my first YouTube published presentation, that I was holding in Athens. So you also know, that I was talking about security in IT. This presentation is also the one, that I had to repeat the most often till now. Most repetition have obviously been done for my employer and for our contracting partners. I do not want to repeat here, what I was talking about (because you can see this for yourself), but I want to tell you about 2 extremes that happened to me, when I approached some of our partners with security topic.

After half a year of (blog) silence

I can hardly believe, that it has passed half a year since my last published blog article. To me this time certainly did not seem that long. I would say, it has been at most 2 months 🙂 . But Chronos is merciless and is always right!

However, this does not mean I was lazy all the time! It is true, that we were also having 3 weeks of summer holidays, but also there we were very active. I will not write here about my holidays or about projects I was having at work. But let me describe some of my other (mostly private) projects of last half a year Continue reading “After half a year of (blog) silence”

Learn –> Help –> Share –> Repeat

It is not so long time ago, when I was asked how do I manage to stay up to date with so many technologies and how am I able to follow so many streams of news that are available each day.

So many things to learn

The answer is simple. I DO NOT MANAGE IT, but I do the best I can. I do not think, that there is simple solution or single way to walk. I also doubt, that the path I am walking will work for you, but I hope you might find a thing or 2 useful and maybe you can try it out. Please let me know if it worked for you as well.

Comparing 2 Security conferences: Bsides Ljubljana vs. Risk conference 2018

As you might already know, I put more focus into IT security in last couple of months. So besides looking for IT technology conferences and gatherings, I have also started to look around for conferences with emphasis on IT security. So I had opportunity to visit 2 of the in this month. First one was BSides Ljubljana, which is prepared by community enthusiasts, while second one Risk Conference 2018 is commercial conference prepared by Real Security. Despite obvious differences in budget, I cannot stop myself comparing them.

Slovene one of the 34 languages on Bing TTS map

Few days ago it came to my attention, that Bing has expanded their Text To Speach API with additional languages. I was surprised and very delighted to find that my native language (Slovene) is now one of 34 supported languages.

Why a surprise?

Slovene is with about 2.5 million speakers between top 5% of languages on the world today and it is on 179th place on this list (as you can read here in Slovene). So despite the fact that there are many more languages that are spoken much more often around the globe, I am delighted that it has been recognized and worth of implementing by Bing Cognitive services.

Who do we have to thank?

This is actually a good question. I do not want to pretend, that I know answer to this question, but let me speculate here a bit.  Continue reading “Slovene one of the 34 languages on Bing TTS map”
