Sandi Hardmeier is a respected MVP and a good friend of mine. She’s been fighting against all kinds of malware in her after hours for the past umpteen years now and has single handedly prevented some potentially major infections (say like 220 million users of MSN Instant Messenger that were at risk). Up until now though, Sandi’s day job has NOT been involved in IT as a primary role. She’s been in the legal field for 20 or more years and has been taking on the bad guys online in her spare time. The bad guys however should be scared. Very scared. Sandi has left the legal field and now works with TRUSTe.
TRUSTe is an organisation thats primary purpose is to ensure that online privacy and protection of confidential data is maintained. Now that Sandi’s there, she will have not only her own considerable resources, but those of TRUSTe.
Bad guys – you’ve been warned. I’d get out of flamethrower range if I were you, this gal has a reputation for toasting servers and in fact entire ISP’s. And I am NOT joking!

Oh – Congratulations Sandi 🙂
