More about our guest:

I’m Kip Brooks. I’m a Certified NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) Practitioner, Coach, Speaker and Trainer and part of the John Maxwell Family.

In my book, Success Memoirs of a F#%k Up, I detail:

How I grew up and my battles with suicide
The death of my father when I was a teenager
My drinkin’ and druggin, my arrest record
How I met the love of my life
How we got pregnant even though that wasn’t supposed to happen for us (once, twice, three times a miracle!)
How, when our baby Skylar died, we decided to make her a donor in hopes to save another family from going through what we were and through that something happened in me, as a man, as a father, as a human being and I used that thing to become a speaker, trainer, and coach to help others

That desire to be more and do more with my one, true, beautiful life was sparked into being by that most profound pain–that transformative loss of a miracle child. No parent should be tested by that fire–and yet, for me, in the pain of that transformation, I earned the stripes of a leader, the power of a father, the fulfilling ability to make a difference in somebody else’s life.

Now, as a speaker, trainer, and coach, I work one on one and in teams to transform the hearts of former F#%k Ups, leaders, and anyone who wants more so that together, we might come to know most extraordinary selves and transform the human experience on this planet.

Bill Hargenrader Interviews Ron Sparkman – Next Level Life: I Love Mars Edition – Episode 1

ron sparkman photo

Ron Sparkman is a former D.J. who was inspired to chase a dream after watching the first episode of Cosmos. After this eye opening experience, he immersed himself in the world of space. 6 months later, he was inspired to create a website called UpportunityU. The motto? “Reaching out to change the world so we can continue our journey to the stars together”. On his blog he shares everything from a “How-To” guide on understanding the universe, to international museum reviews, and information on ways to combat climate change. Like the majority of space nuts, he’s completely enthralled with commercial human space flight and our future presence on Mars. His goal is to seek a degree in astrophysics, go to space (commercial or otherwise), and be involved in anyway with a human settlement on Mars. Ron was added as a contributor for the “I Love Mars” community in June 2015 and shares his vision for our future on the Red Planet.

How to get a Job in Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity JobI was recently interviewed for a CBS News article on finding a career in cybersecurity, but they had to cut some of my response for length considerations. So I am sharing the full interview in this post. Let me know your questions, or best advice in getting started in the cybersecurity field in the comments. -Bill H

What kind of degree is needed to secure a job in our field?

The field of cyber security encompasses a wide array of roles to include: computer network defense, ethical hacking, secure systems design, cyber security management, and many more. Because the roles are varied, there are a number of ways that you can secure a job in the field. I know a number of excellent cyber security professionals who have made a great contribution to the field without a degree.

That being said, a degree will open you up to many more job opportunities, higher pay rates, and make it easier for an organization to hire you. Obtaining a Bachelor’s of science in information systems, computer science, or a specialized information security degree is a safe bet. It is possible to make the case for a business or finance based degree if for instance your aim is to specialize in risk management.

What’s the most challenging aspect of your job?

Some of the most challenging aspects of my job are solving tough client problems, managing and working with teams over long distances and in different time zones, developing applications to automate cyber security processes, and working long hours when a cyber security incident occurs or if a critical project requires it. Though these present challenges, they are also what make the job fun and worth pursuing in the first place.

Even though the cyber security profession has been around for a while now, as a society we are now realizing how critical the role is. Almost every aspect of our life is connected to the internet. This includes our banking information, our identities, our family’s’ personal information, cell phones, and medical devices. Cyber security professionals are the new breed of defender that work to ensure that we are preparing ourselves to face these challenges. It’s a very exciting time to get involved in the field.

After graduation, how hard was it to transition into the working world?

By the time I completed my degree I was already working in the cyber security field. I joined the Army National Guard as an Information Technology Specialist after the terrorist attacks on 9-11. After being activated during Operation Iraqi Freedom III, I spent a year in Iraq where I worked 12 hours days, 7 days a week in a network operations center where I honed my skills and improved my knowledge considerably. This allowed me to pursue my cyber security career path when I returned home to the United States. Deciding to perform military service is a very personal choice. I chose to sign up out of patriotism, however, I am very grateful the training and experience the Army provided me has lasted well beyond my years of service.

What advice would you give someone who is pursuing a career in Cyber Security?

One thing to be aware of is that certifications are big in our industry because they show an employer that you have a standard level of knowledge in a focus area. My recommendation for certification obtainment in order of increasing value (and difficulty) are: Network +, Security +, and the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). The CISSP is an advanced certification, but it’s one you should keep in mind as you grow into your cyber security career.

The final piece of advice I have is the advice I give to anyone with questions on what career to pursue: do what you love. Work at something you are passionate about. There is a lot of learning, hard work, trial and error, reading, coding, testing, and working on nights and weekends, so you will serve yourself best to make sure you are going to enjoy the journey. Not sure what you are passionate about? Jump into cyber security and give it a go. You can always change up later if you decide it’s not right for you.

Mars Book – Reading from Mars Journey: The Calling – Opening Scene

mars book - mars nowBelow is an opening scene from the first chapter of my upcoming Mars book,  Mars Journey: The Calling. This is the first book of many in the Mars Journey series.

Synopsis aka back of the book: A brilliant but disgraced astronaut is called upon to help lead a seemingly impossible international mission from Earth to Mars. Now with the clock ticking down, they’ve entered into a dangerous race against time, and a fight with humanity’s darker side, just to survive long enough to board the launch vehicle that will take them to the Journey spacecraft and Mars beyond.

Enjoy the book reading video and the write up, and please post any questions or thoughts in the comments below.

Opening Scene from Mars Journey: The Calling

Author Bill Hargenrader

T Minus 5 years

The floor of the UN building in NYC was a tumultuous scene. A raucous congregation raised their voices as they were beginning to process what the professor of Foreign Relations from Stanford had just told them. Shayla Carlson, stood in the center of the floor, 200 of the dignitaries from foreign nations looking down at her with skepticism and in disgust. Well that didn’t go over to well her look said, as she looked back to Brent.

At the u shaped table some ways in front of her podium, the jowls of Ambassador Smith of the United States shook as he reached forward to adjust his microphone downward. “Dr. Carlson, what you are saying is that we pool our resources, and dissolve all barriers to technology sharing across all nations, in order to to… take a trip to mars? Why now, what has changed, and why would we trust our secrets with” looking around at Ambassador Dim from China, “with nations who have not proven trust worthy?”

At that, a whole new chorus of consternation arose, and several of the members at the table stood up in protest, turning and shouting.
“A nation such as yours has to no grounds to stand on and preach of trustworthiness!” Leveled Dim.

More had now risen, and the scene threatened to turn into complete discord when Brent Carlson took the mic.

“Hem. Hem hem. Sorry to interrupt this… discourse. But I couldn’t help but say something.”

“You do not have the right to take the floor, security.” Smith began.

“Let her husband speak” shouted someone from the surrounding stands. Followed by calls of “Remove him from the floor’ and quickly all manner of opinions that rose throughout the chambers.

“Seems your occupation as an astronaut has garnered you some bit of celebrity in these halls.” Said Smith contemplating the political fallout from denying the right to speak. The guard who had begun advancing towards Brent stopped and looked to Smith. Smith shook his head at that guard. “You have two minutes Mr. Carlson.”

“Ahh, well. Hmmm.” Said Carlson, beginning to notice the hundreds of eyes upon him, and realizing he didn’t know what he was going to say.

Shayla, cocked her head, and leaned in to whisper, “my husband can fly at the tip of a 20 story rocket, but can’t talk to these old fat blowhards.”

At this he gave a chuckle, she always could make him laugh. A slight grin formed, the one she knew well. The one that said he was about to get into some mischief or trouble (or both). He began.

“Thank you. Now while my wife is the smart one, I am just the worker bee Astronaut that spent over a year in space. Just to let you know how smart I am not, did you know that it takes 50 people to plan out my day when I am aboard the ISS? 50 people! That means I am like 1/50th as smart as a regular person.” To this he raised some laughs in the audience.

“I’m wearing a suit today. It took me about 30 minutes to put on, but when I’m flying around the planet a 17,000 mph, or outside one of our launch vehicles, it takes me 4 hours to get my suit on, and that’s with someone else help! Clearly, I’m lacking in intelligence somewhere.” The timing was just right and now more laughter.

Ambassador Dim, sat back and gave a quizzical but interested sidelong glance. Ambassador Smith just scowled and tapped his watched theatrically.

“Right then. So, I didn’t come here to regale you with tales of my stupidity. As a matter of fact, I just came to support my wife, who has spent the last 7 years building a plan that could send us to the furthest reaches of human space we have been before. This is her show, and the only reason I am took the mic is because I couldn’t bear to see the laughs, the jeers, the insults at such a masterfully crafted and thoroughly vetted plan.”

“Mr. Carlson,” Smith interrupted, “this plan has already been disproven. Time and time again history has shown us that whenever we want to get something done, whether its travel to a new continent, or map out new territory, it’s been for financial gain. And when we went to the moon it was because of competition. Your plan has neither of that.”

“Right, well that’s where you’re wrong. What’s not written in those papers, what’s not written down is the human spirit. And not just the human spirit, but our evolving humanity. I’ve been dreaming of going to mars ever since I was a kid, and even as an astronaut with a country that has a plan to go, my heart breaks every time a program gets put back. Every time a time line is extended by 5 years. There’s an old saying that goes something like this, everyone should have a goal of being a millionaire not for the money you will make, but for the person you will have to become in order to make it. That’s what traveling to mars is about, it’s a challenge on a global scale, and it’s a goal of humanity to become and interplanetary species, not just to say we did it, not just to begin building secondary home to ensure species survival in the cast of a cataclysmic asteroid strike. No, it is a goal for humanity for who we will have to become as a people to pull this off!”

Some cheers now rose from the crowd. Ambassador Smith eyed the room, visibly uncomfortable with how the tide was changing.

Brent continued, “They say we can’t do it alone. I’m looking around at nation’s right in front of me that have the technology, the will, the funding, and they are just looking for someone to pull them together. They say we can’t go to Mars unless there is a space race. A competition to pit ourselves against one another. I say there is a competition. And that competition is against those who say we can’t do it and it’s against our past selves. Our past selves who committed genocide, and purported slave trading. We are better than those people, just like we are better than the people that need a space race to make this work. There is no place for that in our future. The challenge to you, and you, and you and everyone out there isn’t how do we create a space race, it’s how do we get the human race to space, to mars, and beyond. Will we be better than our past selves? Will we repeat the mistakes? Or will we seize the moment to unite for this our greatest cause? Well, that moment is now. And it’s up to you to make the decision. Thank you.”

The chambers erupted in cheers, and ambassador smith smacked his gavel down hard, again, and again. Ambassador Dim leaned forward and slowly nodded as a smile spread across his face.

Shayla turned to Brent, and said, Holy crap, where did that come from?”

“I don’t know!” Shaking his head incredulously. She pulled him down to her face and kissed him hard.

Top 5 Mars NOW Movement Factors and Framework

I Love MarsSo how do we get to Mars??? With so many people that want to go, or just want to help ensure humanity gets there, or just are interested in the science and progress aspect of it, there seems like we should be able to make it happen.

I want to share some of my thoughts on what we can do to make sure we get to Mars. I call it the Mars NOW Movement Factors and Framework.

NOW standing for New Opportunity World (or Next Objective World depending on your view point).

In the effort and desire to get to Mars all the following forces/factors/components exist:

Mars NOW Movement Factors

1. Organizations:
Nation level entities (US, China, Russia, etc)
Non Profits NGOs (Mars Society, Mars One, Mars NOW, etc)
Commercial Entities (SpaceX, New Space Industry, Old School Space, etc)

2. Motivation Forces:
Popularity (public opinion on national and global scale)
Entertainment Value (Fun to watch, fun to be involved in)
Scientific Value (teaching students, employing engineers, etc)
Manifest Destiny Factor

3. Movement Drivers:
Money
Equity
Trust
Will

But they exist in disarray, wasted or duplicated efforts, or presenting ideas that never go anywhere.

What’s needed is:

A Tier 2 focusing lens that focus that brings the high level elements together.
A Tier 1 focusing lens that focuses those beams together to get us to Mars.

Mars NOW Focusing Lens Factors

4. Motivation Tools:
Movies
Books (scifi, nonfiction)
Celebrities
Marketing
PR

5. Force Multipliers:
Perception
Intrinsic rewards: doing it for pride, country, challenge, excitement
Extrinsic Rewards: Won the xyz prize / we were first!

6. Global Beliefs / Reasons:
Altruistic – For human progress!
Logical – It’s what we do as humans, explore, conquer, move on
Danger – “In case we wipe ourselves out!”

These focusing lens do not have to be 100% efficient, meaning there can be differing views on how things can be done, as long as they move in the same direction and are open to mutual support.

The sooner the focusing power is turned on and turned up the sooner we get to Mars. The how of how we do that is the next question. But, instead of focusing on why people aren’t doing more we can concentrate our efforts on in our given specialty, or help form the basis and direction for the focusing lens. Also sometimes lurkers are bidding their time and incubating world changing plans.

I created an infographic to demonstrate visually how this would look. Once again, no easy solutions, just one potential cooperative and collaborative path to Mars.

The Modern Chief Information Security Officer (CISO)

Bill Hargenrader CISO ArticleHappy to contribute to this great cybersecurity article from Code 42.

The need for answers to C-level security questions has shaped the role of a modern CISO

“Every executive role has changed in the past decade or so, but none more than the chief information security officer. Ten years ago, if you asked someone to describe his CISO, he’d probably answer, “You mean my CIO?””

“Hargenrader’s words of wisdom: “If InfoSec leaders can’t properly communicate the risk to non-cybersecurity versed organizational leadership, then they are at a disadvantage.””
