Brian Ford (@ohBrian) is a life-long New Yorker and part time Floridian.  For  years I worked for one the most recognizable Internet companies in the world.  Then I went to work for a much smaller and much more agile Internet security company.  I could not have been happier.  Then my old employer bought the startup and I am back working for that most recognizable Internet company.  Small world.  Go figure.

I developed an interest in networking while working on the defensive avionics systems for military aircraft.  This interest turned into a passion as I was introduced to personal computers and local area networking.  Along the way I picked up degrees and certifications including my:

  • B.S. in Computer Science,
  • Novell Certified Netware Engineer (CNE),
  • Novell Certified Netware Instructor (CNI),
  • Novell Enterprise Certifieed Netware Engineer (ECNE),
  • Cisco Certified Internetworking Expert (CCIE),
  • Certified Information Systems Security professional (CISSP)
  • M.S. in Information Assurance (MSIA) and
  • Security+.

When I’m not either reading or working or learning more about information and network security you can find me puttering in my garden, working out in the gym, cutting wood, or watching way too much NBA basketball (Go Brooklyn!).
