Designing, installing, and maintaining your company’s infrastructure can be one heck of a job. I’ve been doing network architecture for about 20 years now and the best explanation I’ve ever found to tell people what I do is still, “I make sure packets go from point A to point B, and back again”. Horribly simplified, but if I start going down the rabbit-hole about L1-L4 design ideas and trade-offs, they immediately look like they just stepped on a rake and knocked themselves silly. Seriously, if I ever want my kids to go to sleep right away, I just pick a random page out of “TCP/IP Illustrated” and start reading it to them. “Forget counting sheep, I’ve got a subnet mask for you to work on…” But one of the things that keeps me up at night is security. I’ve had plenty of clients who’ve back-burnered security and woke up the next day to an encrypted file system and demands for bitcoins. I’ve got others who are now starting to realize that everybody accessing their IP/sensitive docs internally maybe really isn’t a good thing and those emails from Mr. Nairbobi?
