Meet the Gate Keeper of the Dark Web Gjeret Stein
While the internet side of the business was slow, I learned “Big Iron” computing by building, configuring and installing OpenVMS Servers for small places like St Lukes, the Chicago Stock Exchange and First Star!
Y2K was a boon for most IT companies, sadly, OpenVMS was not affected by the “bug” and the IT budgets of companies went to fix the Microsoft Windows, so… I was out of a job.
I got my A+, MCP, MCSA, MCSE, and MCSE+Security. And went into becoming the inhouse IT Administrator for a few small Milwaukee Software Companies. Took a taste as a consultant, and started my own IT Services Company focusing on Small and Medium businesses. Sensible Gurus LLC. I have been running that since 2007!
The Idea for Ultra Scary LLC started as an idea for a branch of Sensible. Bug with all the confidential data that our services come in contact with, we brought Ultra into this world as its own legal entity!
Aside from that, I am happily married for over 20 years, have three kids, two of whom are identical twins, and cut gemstones as a hobby!
My favorite takeaways from this week’s episode:
- Everyone is at risk
- Change your passwords
- Don’t lose the keys to the castle
- Once it is on the web it stays on the web
