It is with some sadness and much excitement that I write this final post for my Gartner blog.
If you recall, I joined Gartner in 2011, so it has been nearly 8 years. So far, this has been my favorite job, the best I ever had in my life, by a wide margin. I’ve been very good at it too, making it all the way to VP Distinguished Analyst.
In fact, I loved nearly every moment of it. Hundreds, possibly thousands, of client inquiry calls over the course of 8 years. Many dozens of papers, most with such amazing partners like Augusto Barros and more recently Anna Belak. Dozens of conference presentations. Nearly 500 Gartner blog posts. Many topics like SIEM, EDR (hey, I coined the term!), DLP, UEBA, VA/VM, SOAR, NTA / NDR, SOC, MSSP / MDR, TI, DDoS, deception, IR / DFIR and other security operations, detection and response topics. Hours of intellectual banter about technology trends around virtual Gartner watercooler, with new ideas flowing and new research created.
All in all, a lot of fun!
And now all of this comes to an end. However, note that my move is not about leaving Gartner, but about pursuing literally a once in a lifetime opportunity! Continuing my unwritten policy of not mentioning vendors on my blog, I won’t mention where I am going (see LinkedIn, if you are that curious).
BTW, our team (still our team as I am typing this) is hiring!
Now, onwards to CHANGE THE WORLD!!!
