I'm from Gastonia near Charlotte in NC. I've been doing
security-related things for quite a few years. You have chosen a very
interesting topic . . . I'd be interesting in hearing the results you
get. I am in the process of starting a company that will address the
very issues that you have identified . . . helping (clueless)
individuals and small businesses more security-conscious and helping
them figure out how to put the appropriate controls in place. Will be
happy to share insights and results with you.
