It All Started 30 Years Ago

Who would have guessed that events in the summer of 1977 would lead us to where we are today?

In April of that year a couple of hackers (and I used that term in its original benevolent meaning) attended a computer fair in San Francisco. Their mission? To show the world their brand new creation called the Apple II.

A few months later, in June 1977, the first units were shipped to customers and that sparked a revolution in the way we all live day to day. 30 years later, here we are, trying to keep our systems and networks secure from the bad guys.
