About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Why does that all sound so familiar? Oh yeah that’s right I’ve lived it a couple of times as have you…

    IT Security is a thankless job. Really, what was described isn’t anything unusual and you’ll find the same bullshit pretty much in any workplace. Even non-profits, schools, etc.

    Well, I’ve found some interesting butting of heads in the Fed sector. The biggest issue is finding that ballance between usable and secure…and secure usually trumos with us. Not always, but often enough.

    Uh, “trumos”?
    I’m hoping you meant “trumps”, :)

    yeah. My fat fingers and forgetting to use the spellcheck always bites me in the ass…
