Come on, we all have them; horror stories of IT and security disasters we’d rather rather forget. But rather than forget them, I’d like you to share them and tell everyone what you learned from the experience. And in return, I have a free three day pass to CSI 2008 in Maryland, November 15-21, that I’ll give out on next Friday, November 7th. If you’re in the same boat I am and don’t have a budget for training, this can go a long way towards getting management approval for the event.
The rules are going to be pretty simple:
- Post a comment on this post telling us your horror story and, more importantly, what you learned from it. If you’ve already written your story on a blog, you can leave a short description and a link to the post.
- You must leave a valid email address.
- The story must be original, no plagiarism please.
- Stories will be judged on originality, entertainment value and what was learned from the incident. I’m the sole judge.
If you’re not the lucky winner, there’s still the CSI 2008 discount code you can use. There’s already a lot of the Security Twits that planning on attending and I’ve even heard rumblings of a blogger meetup or twitter meetup.
