You may have noticed several posting recently that are a redirect to Peter Vogel‘s Internet, Information Technology & e-Discovery Blog. While I’ve found the content on his site useful and interesting for years, it is only recently that I started contributing to its content. There, as with many other stories, is a backstory.
Peter and I met several years ago when I was pen-testing networks. He and I struck it off and over the years he has been my friend and mentor. Now, he is also my colleague. I have recently joined the venerable Gardere law firm.
Gardere is was founded in 1909 and has grown into one of the Southwest’s largest full-service law firms – with more than 230 attorneys serving clients from three of the largest cities in Texas, as well as Colorado and Mexico, and covering more than 40 different areas of practice.
When I left state government, I spoke to Peter about joining Gardere to help bolster their Cybersecurity and Privacy Legal Services team. I was happy to join the team in November.
I look to expanding Gardere’s practice in this area over the coming years and building one of the finest cybersecurity teams in the state.
I hope this new opportunity will also allow me time to keep this blog up to date with information around Texas, national, and international security and privacy information.
Here’s to 2017!
