This site is written by me, Todd Dow. I’m a writer, geek, CF fundraiser and cancer survivor. My wife, my kids, faith, baseball, infosec & devops are a few of my favourite things.
Professionally, I specialize in information security, risk management and IT operations. During the day, I support and protect my employers through the application, management and optimization of information security principles, tools, techniques and best practices. I am also the creative force behind Cryptogeddon, an online cyber security war game.
In addition to my IT career, I have also earned my Specialist Honours Degree in Philosophy and Religious Studies from the University of Toronto and I have also completed some graduate work at McMaster Divinity College. Additionally, I have earned my second degree black belt in the martial arts of karate, tae kwon do and jiu jitsu. This grounding in both eastern and western philosophical and religious traditions has provided a breadth and depth of experience that I bring to my writing and critical thinking.
I have published some books already, and I have plenty of other books in various states of completion. The working titles for some of my upcoming projects are:
One last thing… This blog does not reflect the views of my employer(s). And, I want to confess a few things. Read my full disclosure.
Thanks for the visit and stay in touch!
