Back In The Saddle Again

I spent almost the last six years working for one of the world’s largest financial institutions and it was a great experience where I learned more in that time than I think I would have learned in a lifetime with a smaller institution.  I’m very grateful for the experience, but one of the tradeoffs was that I had to put the blog on hiatus several years back after my employer implemented a pretty conservative social media policy.  It’s a decision that each organization has to make and like most things in life, it’s a matter of weighing different priorities.  Large financial institutions tend to be conservative when it comes to that sort of thing because of regulatory and reputational risk so it was a reasonable decision for them to make.

Now that I have left the financial industry and returned back to my roots in law enforcement as the Vice President of International and Strategic Initiatives at the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), I’m able to fire up the blog and I’m looking forward to being part of the discussion again. As always, what shows up on this blog are my opinions and aren’t necessarily those of my employer.

The rub is that I’m pretty much back to ground zero when it comes to followers for the blog and my twitter account so I’m grateful if people could spread the word that I’m back in action.

My twitter feed is @ericjhuber which has exactly 19 followers as I write this.  #sadpanda. Please help me fix that.
