I need to clarify my previous note. I am not a wannabe looking to find out more about hacking.

I have been a security consultant for 18+ years, worked for many government agencies on black projects, incorporated my own security company in 1995, currently have a contract to provide my security expertise solely through IBM's I/T Security Consulting Practice, and have submitted a security invention for possible consideration for a patent.

I am a professional Security Consultant who makes money by protecting large companies and state government agencies from hackers. (No spooky stuff, anymore, just business.) I work one-third of my time out of my house, and two-thirds of my time flying around the country to customer sites.

If there is anybody else out there doing similar stuff, or having similar interests, I would like to contact you. I am turning down six engagements for every one I can fill. There aren't enough security consultants to fill the need. I am not in a position to train anybody, because I'm too busy. But if anybody already has expertise in security or computers, especially if they are intelligent or creative thinkers like on this list, I would really like to talk to you.
