    I have run a blog on WordPress for about 3 years. I have two recommendations:

    (1) drop the login for people to register comments. It is a pain. And it is hard to get comments even with no login.
    (2) in the About section, you should provide some info about yourself.
    I always like to know the professional credentials of the person I am reading. Since you require validation of readers, you should provide some for yourself.

    Good luck with the new launch.

      Hi Dale. My advice would be to seek out a degree in network security, or computer science or engineering in general, then get some experience in the field. This may be as a IT tech rather than in security initially, but if you learn about IT systems in general you can build the foundation for network security. Securing networks is all about building rings of protection around a company’s digital assets in the same way you protect a building. Learning about the building first helps you understand how to protect it.

      Get the degree, then go out and get some real experience. Chances are if you start with a small firm, you will be doing security in addition to everything else. Then when you qualify go and get your CISSP certification. Once you have that, you will find your way into IT security no problem.

      Best of Luck! Let me know how you do!
