Year 2014 will most probably be a refreshing year to myself, everything is like new all over again and what should I do next is important.
NSM has been big part of my career and I'm back to the root, and I would like to discuss/share anything regarding this huge topic. The first thing I would most probably do is to grab the book that is written by my friend - Richard, The Practice Of NSM. Thank you for your effort to write this book, it is really tough to stay focused and finished a book especially for a busy person like you.
Second thing to do would be reviewing the new version of existing tools, and also new tools that kick in without me noticing - Netsniff-ng, Snort, Suricata, Bro-ids, Argus, NetworkMiner, SIFT and many more, you name it.
Third thing to do is sharing, to share what I have found and learned, in the world of IT security.
