Hurricane Preparedness; It's Almost Like Cybersecurity
So I have been ‘retired’ for about 3 ½ years now but I keep my hand in security by doing security awareness training for Ashton. Since this encompasses some clients who understand the value of training and others who don't, I am always on the lookout for new training material and situations that can be used as examples to illustrate security issues. Our recent trip to Hawaii and the brush with hurricanes is a perfect example.
This trip was interesting from a security/disaster standpoint because during the three plus weeks we were on the way/there/leaving we had to deal with three hurricanes.
Hector was heading for the islands about two days before our trip west. We had no idea what impact it would have on our trip- would we even make it to our destination? Fortunately, it had none. In fact, it turned north before getting to Hawai’i and did no damage. Even better, it cleared the air around the island of Hawaii which had been very voggy (fog and gases from the recent volcanic eruption).
