This Weekly Wrap covers two weeks, Monday 17 to Sunday 30 April 2017, because little happened during this time apart from the continuing throat infection, and grumpiness, and a day off for Anzac Day.
Here’s a list, and a completely unrelated photo.
- Australia’s bold plan for cybersecurity growth, ZDNet Australia, 20 April 2017.
None, but I’ll be announcing the next date for The 9pm Edict very soon.
- On Wednesday 19 April, I spoke about a whole bunch of things on ABC Melbourne. Once more, I may or may not post this audio. Stay tuned, or something.
- On Thursday 27 April, I was quoted in an ABC News story, FaceApp: Experts have privacy concerns about popular face transformation app.
- On Thursday 20 April, I covered the launch of Australia’s Cyber Security Sector Competitiveness Plan at the Museum of Contemporary Art, and a lovely buffet breakfast was served. This is what generated the article listed above.
The Week Ahead
Monday will be a day of catching up on work and household loose ends as I finally kill this throat infection. And writing this.
On Tuesday, I’m working on the SEKRIT editorial project, then catching a train down to Sydney for The Double Disillusionists podcast recording at Giant Dwarf that evening. I’ll stay in Sydney overnight.
On Wednesday morning, I’ll be covering the half-day conference Cyber Security â€” the Leadership Imperative 2017, which I daresay I’ll write about before returning to Wentworth Falls.
Thursday through Sunday are as yet unplanned, but I know there’s lots of writing and editing to catch up on. What the daily plans emerge on Twitter.
the AusCERT Information Security Conference on the Gold Coast from 24 to 26 May; the 5th International Conference on Cybercrime and Computer Forensics (ICCCF) on the Gold Coast from 16 to 18 July, or at least I hope; and the national conference of the Australian Information Security Association (AISA) in Sydney on 10 to 12 October.
Update 17 May 2016: Edited to reflect schedule changes.
