As some of you know, I had problems with hard disk on my server (pi3.com.pl) which immediate cause problems with availability of my blog and personal site. Bad sectors appear in one of the partition. It took some time before hosting company replace it with new hard drive. Additionally I was waiting for almost one weak until defective drive will be sent to me for creating an image of last running correct system and next restore it. In the mean time I lost access to my private mail and so on… Anyway, finally server is back so I’m adding some pictures:

I haven’t been posting for a long time. One of the main reason of this situation was of course…. TIME. As some of you is aware I changed my job which involves form me a lot of time, energy, time, travelling, time, recruitment, time, closing old task and time 🙂
Last year I was working as security consultant in great consulting company Cigital. Some of you maybe know CTO – Gary McGraw. My main task as a Security Consultant at Cigital, was working at a large financial institution as part of the Application Security Architecture team. Working on many different projects alongside the development teams within the organization to ensure security is thought about at the requirements stage of the SDLC. Then I work with the development team throughout the development, testing and deployment phase to ensure the application is secure. From this short description you can realize it is mostly high management job compared what I was doing for my last years (research). I met a lot of great people there – mostly Greek “maphia” guys (greetings especially to Alexios and John :)) where we had a lot of fun not only at work 🙂 Of course in company was working other great people which wasn’t Greek (greetings to David, Luca, James, Florence :)).
Anyway after a year I decided to come back to what I love (research) and this is the reason why I’m now at… Microsoft.
In the mean time I was discussing in many companies but MS was more flexible, openmind and “helpful” comparing to others that I decided to go there – especially they have section (group) which perfectly matches to my job preferences.
