Welcome to my blog

my name is Joerg Stephan (Jörg in Germany, most Americans I tell to call me George). I am working in the IT space since late 1998 and I mainly blame my Commodore C64 and the fact that I am using Linux since around 1997/98.

Over the course of the last 24+ years I have been a system administrator, I have led a system administration team (today we would call it NOC I guess), have been a CISO for a short while and explored the IT security field becoming a Security Analyst and later Consultant and went back to engineering again.

I have spoken on conference small and not so small, wrote blog posts and whitepapers the size of a small book. I am and have been a mentor and trainer to newcomers in the field and I hope I did a good job.

In the 24+ years I have been on all sites of the famous table and maybe even being under it changing cables.

Enjoy your stay and remember to always be excellent to each other
