Add me to the list of SSN staff members who had a challenging trip to ISC West. I escaped the snow in Portland with no problem, but had quite a flight from Philly to Vegas. In the row behind me, three middle-aged adults (two who work in security) became fast friends, got heavy into the airplane bottles of red wine and vodka, and were really smart and interesting to listen to for five-and-a-half hours. Yes, there was singling. Earplugs didn’t help. Warning: They’re planning a “reunion” on a flight to California on May 6.
At least my cab driver didn’t get arrested. Check with Sarah Flanagan for the details of her trip.
So, I’m prepping for my panel discussion tomorrow morning in room 701 at 8:45 a.m. Come hear about Paramount Studio’s global security operations center. Here are the details.
