How can you assure me that your level of security, will let my data reach it’s destination, without no alteration? You’ll get no casualties, my Confidentiality‘s the norm; don’t track to whack my system, YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.

You’ll get frustrated, in your attempts against his network….I’ll launch a SEA attack against the desk clerk; Back Track…cover my act and clear the stats; You’re in Denial Of your Service- Here’s the facts!

As security increases, my functionality decreases; watching my system go to pieces. A Non-Disclosure‘s in my leases…let’s define the boundaries; Then we can talk about completion. Which of the following is true? He has no prior knowledge of you system…but he’s a part of your crew. Is he a cracker or a Hatter? And if he is a Hatter…Why does his color even matter? Or maybe he just does it cause he’s madder; trying to gain a name is this game…and climb the ladder?

The latter is a man with no position. The former is a man that’s on a mission: He has permission.

I’m scanning and enumerating…then gaining access. The escalation of my privileges then back…YES!!

Hire Skilled Commanders To Increase Your Odds Of Winning

“ A skilled commander is able to select the right men and exploit the situation. He who takes advantage of the situation uses his men in fighting as rolling logs or rocks. It is the nature of logs and rocks to stay stationary on the flat ground and to roll forward on a slope.

After being online for almost a year now,  ( note: that isn’t a typo; I’ve only maintained an online identity so to speak for a time span of less than 365 days. Bologna you say? No, it’s true. Go ahead, run your scans, do your research- whois, DNS, netmaps and what not- you’ll see. Don’t approach it too technical if you’re not that type of character; remember, Google, Yahoo, Bing can be your best friend in situations of such. The info’s available all the way down to the CName’s for Loced-Out Recordz. If you really want to get down and dirty with it I’m certain it can get even more gangsta when it comes to attaining the information. Recall, I’m an HTC Hero. http://www.zdnet.com/blog/hardware/so-theres-a-rootkit-hidden-in-millions-of-cellphones/16708?tag=nl.e539 ) one thing I came to realize rather quickly is…that…THIS SHIT IS WAR! Wait, what is that I hear you saying underneathe your breath? “Peta-Loc, make peace not war. ” My response? It’s sounds good. Who doesn’t want peace? Is it probable? Yeah. With a worldwide collective effort sure, I think the human population can pull it off. Is it practical? That my friend is for you, the individual to decide. Look at it this way and maybe we can get on the same page here. I, along with I’m sure 85% of independent artist made their entry point into the world of social networking (post MySpace era) via Facebook. Who wouldn’t? Fans everywhere, right? Check it: http://www.rafayhackingarticles.net/2011/11/facebook-phishing-scams-at-its-best.html   It’s that simple my friend. THIS SHIT ONLINE IS WAR! However, this post isn’t so much about war as it is about hiring skilled commanders so…let’s get to the point.

Approach the industry as if you’re on the battlefield and note that throughout military and business history, small outnumbered armies have succeeded against much bigger foes. The American Civil War. Full of such stories. During the early years of the war, the Southern generals won victories against the more numerous and better-equipped Northern troops. They won because of their greater skills- daring tactics, skilled maneuvering, and…A SENSE OF WHEN TO TAKE A RISK. This is where skilled commanders come into play. And when searching for skilled commanders be mindful that the strength of the status quo frequently outweighs the need to take measured risks. But quite naturally, “ the least gifted commanders are usually the most political. ” ( Go figure. ) Here’s a few tips to keep in mind when you’re searching for skilled commanders:

  1. Develop Your Leaders- The greater complexity of business decisions on/off-line (and the greater breadth of knowledge required of business leaders) makes developing employees increasingly important. We count on key people not just to solve problems, but to identify when to bring in additional resources. Managers need to assess and fix problems and know when they need help. In part because competitive situations can change very quickly, and in part because businesses are under greater scrutiny.
  2. Stretch Jobs- Research shows that peak learning experiences happen in jobs where people are challenged to work outside their comfort level and learn new things. The right amount of stress creates a positive stress- the stress of successfully negotiating your way through some unfamiliar territory.
  3. New Roles- If you are a stable organization with seasoned employees, allowing people to switch roles temporarily can be a low-risk way to teach people new things- and to improve communications within your organization.  Think about it: You will also be cultivating employees who have a more holistic view of your organization and bring out-of-the box thinking to different areas of your organization. ( For your own career, look for jobs that give you some new experience. Careers that provide new learnings…don’t always look for the next promotion.
  4. Mentoring- Most of us have learned our craft from a few select people. Training and mentoring experiences can provide needed learning. Most effectively when done by fellow comrades  or experienced maestros who understand the organization and can make the training immediately relevant.
  5. Make The Most of Your Team- Don’t ever assume you will have exactly the team you want. Any team you manage will always have some shortcomings. ( Even your TIGER TEAM. ) The skillful manager gets the right people in the key positions and makes all of the people around him or her better through setting clear objectives and providing training and development.

In summary: Help your employees build new skills, Give your people peak experiences, Look for peak experiences for yourself.

Peace!
