1. Sans Technology Education: The Attack Surface Problem[http://www.sans.edu/cyber-research/security-laboratory/article/did-attack-surface]

The Power of Community and Open Source

How have we created a ‘brand new’ product in a year that has millions of users throughout the world?

The product is a unique configuration and setup of a set of Open Source projects which have existed and used by millions of users to safely encrypt and store their files onto cloud servers.

Why aren’t more people using these Open Source projects to protect themselves and their families?  To be blunt – despite the tremendous effort to simplify and manage these technologies – it is still a lot of effort and complexity for non-technologists.  Even for technologists – they usually have better things to do then setup, maintain and protect servers for this purpose.  Simply installing a piece of software on a server may provide the functionality, but not necessarily the protection, privacy and security that a completely architected solution can.

As technologists focused on privacy and security, we saw a need to provide a simple, seamless way to encrypt and security your families data files, photos, etc.

What are some of the key components that let us built this simple, turnkey solution for you?

  • ownCloud – community edition server
  • Raspbian – Debian Linux
  • BackBlaze B2 Storage – robust cloud storage solution that is reliable, scalable and affordable.
  • A Cloud of My Own – secure configuration, services, infrastructure and support


Operating out of Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC), A Cloud of My Own develops security solutions for Homes and Busninesses.

Companies and Governmental Agencies all have large budgets to prepare for, and defended against criminals, other companies or governments capturing, destroying and compromising their data and information.

A Cloud Of My Own was founded with the mission of helping your protect yourself, your family and your business.

Its simple to install (plug it into your network and plug in the power cord)

Baseline Protection – How to Begin (Part 1)

The more ‘connected’ our lives become, the higher the risk that someone with bad intentions could use these devices to capture information about us.  Each connected device (while adding value by simplifying or enhancing our lives )  presents an opportunity for bad things to happen.  Fortunately, many of the risks can be dramatically reduced through …
