Good morning, and welcome to Aeria Gloris. Here I will be bringing two forms of security experience.

First, I will be giving walk-throughs for how to accomplish some of the basic and advanced security goals you may have. This will include anything from basic system security setups, to network IDS and security data analytics, to incident detection and rectification. In the beginning I will lean towards more beginner tutorials, but I have a list of previous projects I had the hardest trouble accomplishing at the time, and those are priorities to have done.

My second goal for this website is to bring commentary on how events of the world will impact security. Discussion will not come from every single thing occurring, nor will it focus entirely on technology. The main reason I want to do this is that situational awareness is a constantly understated part of information security. And the biggest threats have arisen from circumstances that most people haven’t paid attention to. A good example of this is the Arab Spring, where government use of technology to go after dissidents encouraged those dissidents to learn how to combat them. Those newly-informed rebels could then spread their skills and knowledge throughout the region, and have plenty of targets worldwide who may have sold tools to their former governments.

The schedule for this will involve posts weekly on Mondays and Thursdays. The Monday posts will be tutorials as described above. Thursday will be commentary either on current or past world events, and context for your security decisions.  If you have any suggestions or comments, I look forward to hearing from you.
