    Far Side creator Gary Larson wrote that a high-school biology teacher once told him she showed her class a number of Far Side comics at the beginning of the school year and most of the students didn't get the humor.

  • Japanese Users Need to Be More Proactive About Cybersecurity

    by Jennifer Lawinski on May 24, 2016

    When it comes to cybersecurity, many users in Japan don't practice what they preach.

    At the RSA conference last month, I lead a Peer2Peer session on the topic of Security of Public Cloud Services: It Takes a Village.
