Before you get to the blogs further down…

[Updated 30th December 2018]

Welcome! Check out the links on the menu above to find out about Small Blue Green World. This is the gateway to the various blogs and bits and bobs that have constituted the SBGW presence on the web.

Essentially, this is a consultancy offering services to the security industry, launched by David Harley in 2006 and with (until 31st December 2018) one main customer, so this particular page hasn’t been maintained very regularly: it has no pressing commercial/advertising function, but it includes some papers/resources that may not be available elsewhere.

I’m no longer working with ESET, and am not looking for another permanent role in the security industry, but might be tempted by the occasional editing/reviewing job.

Some articles and conference papers can’t be posted on a commercial site for copyright-related reasons, so I tend to post them on this site instead. When I remember. Specifically, most of that stuff is now posted to Geek Peninsula.

AVIEN (formerly the Anti-Virus Information Exchange Network), which was run as an independent organization by myself and Andrew Lee (and before that by founder Robert Vibert), has its own blog page hosted there, but I’m no longer heavily associated with the organization except as an occasional blogger there. As I’m not longer working within the security industry, I don’t plan to continue blogging there in the foreseeable future, but there are several years worth of resource pages that might be useful to someone.

I ran several other specialist security blogs completely independently of ESET, and these included a blog focused on hoaxes, spam, scams and similar nuisances, and another that focused (mostly) on Apple malware: essentially, it was the reincarnation of the old Mac Virus web site originally founded by Susan Lesch, and sometimes included contributions from Old Mac Bloggit, the well-known pseudonym. Again, it’s not currently maintained.

We stopped hosting the AMTSO blog. I did, however, maintain an independent AV-testing blog/resource called, imaginatively, Anti-Malware Testing, and this archives most of the articles I originally posted on the old AMTSO blog – of course, they do not represent AMTSO’s official views. I no longer blog at  Infosecurity Magazine,  (ISC)2 or Securiteam.

I used to flag current articles, papers, blogs and media coverage at The Geek Peninsula (most of this is also tweeted via DavidHarleyBlog/) but I was having trouble remembering to update it. I’m now using it as a repository for (most of) my papers, some of my articles, pointers to my current and past blogs, and so on.
