I wanted to first introduce myself to the community as an upcoming contributor for the BIEB (Because Its Everyone's Business) blog.   My name is David B. Cross and I am currently the Product Unit Manager for the ISA Server and Forefront TMG (Threat Management Gateway) engineering organization.  For many of the community who do not know me, I have worked in various security teams and roles throughout the company for almost 12 years.  Previous to my current role, I spent 8 years in the Windows Security organization of the company working in several notable areas such as PKI, smartcards and Kerberos authentication.  If anyone is interested, Jeff Jones posted an interview with me a few years back:   My team and I also maintain a product team blog which we discuss not only the upcoming TMG release, but also interesting support and technical issues facing the community.  I am excited to be participating in the coming days and months to share my perspective and learning's from our customers about how Forefront and the Business Ready Security approach really is unique in the industry and changes the game for many IT professionals around the world.
