About Me & This Blog

Hi,

my name is Jake Curtis and this is my weblog that I finally started in 2016. I will try to focus on information security topics and I intend to write the posts in a not-too-technical language to appeal to a wider audience. Although I am based in the Munich area (Germany), I decided to write posts in English – simply because there are potentially more readers out there that understand English. I might make an exception for very specific topics (like on the German data privacy law – BDSG – which I am also currently dealing with).

I’ve been educated / working in the broad field of IT since 2002 in different positions. Late 2014 I chose to further specialize in information security management, but of course I’m still interested in and up to date on more “hands-on” / technical stuff too. I’m currently working for a large, globally operating German media company as Information Security Officer.

Despite rumors that managers often have no clue about the actual work – I still configure my own private web server mainly with vi and am not shy to write bash scripts on my own if required ;-). Checkout my profiles on LinkedIn and XING for details.

Feel free to contact me and let me know what you think about this blog. Thanks for reading!

Jake
