I Am More Than My IPVM Title

This is meant to be a post on a funny subject. Funny as in "odd" not "ha ha."

For a variety of reasons (usually employer sensitivity--often hyper-sensitivity--to social media) a number of us post undisclosed. When doing so we get tagged with our current role, i.e. "Manufacturer, End User, Integrator, or Distributor."

I would encourage the members that very often that tag you see does not define us historically--only presently. Many of us have varied backgrounds. For example, while currently working in Distribution, I have far more years as an Integrator, and even more as an End User Security Director/Leader.

I suspect that is the case with many IPVM members.

When you see an "undisclosed" member weigh-in to help another member, it may help to keep in mind that this is a small industry and many of us have spent years in many roles. As such, our insights may benefit you in spite of our IPVM title when undisclosed.
