@caseyjohnellis No problems. Tomorrow I’m writing up my observations of what Alan Paller said tonight, then exploring the “extras”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to caseyjohnellis

@caseyjohnellis Nope, said in conversation. Will chase in the morning.

@yinettesys @RealNickHodge I believe I know how to deliver that message.

What motivates organisations to clean up their data breaches properly? “When they get found out… So leak it.”

Apparently Microsoft has just announced a service to implement the DSD Top 4 things as a consulting service. Orly? Inneresting!

“You have people claiming security isn’t a technical problem? Find those people, and shoot them!”

“I was at the Fort when…” So I guess that’d be Fort Meade, headquarters of the US National Security Agency, Sir? Heh.

@mwyres So, you know there are ways of communicating data other than the internet? DVDs in the post? @Asher_Wolf @Andrew_Zammit

The new key to security? “Stop paying people to tell you what to do. Pay people to do it.”

via Janetter for Mac

Paller: “Have you noticed how everyone in the security field is smarter than you and wants to tell you that?” Smirks.

via Janetter for Mac

@Wyld I believe we are informing the security landscape right now. With canapes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Wyld

Attacks are getting real, causing real damage. “I need people I can trust who can fix the problem, not just admire the problem.”

via Janetter for Mac

I’m too busy listening to tweet, but Paller is outlining how the entire info security landscape has changed is the last few weeks.

via Janetter for Mac

Remarkably few familiar faces. Perhaps the napkin situation has dissuaded them.

From 1730 AEDT I’ll be at SANS Institute research director Alan Paller’s session “What Really Stops Targeted Intrusions”. Expect geekery.

I seem to be suffering high . Geographical Irritation Quotient. I might have to plot a heat map.

@stacyandrews Yeah that. Obviously. Though I’m pretty sure I’d rather stick my head into a pregnant sow and recite Tolstoy.

@jeamland I don’t even understand what that means.

@SnarkyPlatypus I’m putting the irons in the fire right now.

Still sulking though.

Checking the postbox only once every six weeks or so provides a sensible perspective on “urgent”.

@damonism WELL NOW THEY HAVE CUTE ANIMATED COCKROACHES WITH MOODY COMMUNIST JAZZ MUSIC IS THAT EDGY ENOUGH FOR YOU?

via Plume for Android in reply to damonism

@damonism I saw online versions of that DSD recruitment ad, yes. It ran on the Patch Monday podcast web pages for a while I think.

@Andrew_Zammit Thanks very much. I’ve had good feedback, which was lovely, and no unmarked vans or canvas sacks. Yet.

I’d also like to thank DSD for making next month’s presentation to local government a matter of copying and pasting your shit into mine. ;)

“We’re the Defence Signals Directorate, here to help you keep your information safe.” Nice work, ladies and gentlemen of the bunker!

HOW COME THE DSD HAS SUCH COOL MUSIC ON THEIR VEE DEE YO?

New from Australia’s Defence Signals Directorate (DSD), a video! “Catch. Patch. Match.” dsd.gov.au/videos/catch-p…

New from Australia’s Defence Signals Directorate (DSD), a video! “Angela Merkel’s Bathroom Secrets”! No wait. Wrong video. Stand by…

@Andrew_Zammit Thanks for that, Andrew. As usual for the Parliamentary Library, a great backgrounder. @chrisberg @R_Chirgwin

The Balls Radio spot is recorded. It’s a bit of a rant. Yeah well.

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes @phildobbie Does the phrase “work up to a lather” mean anything to you?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

Awaiting the virtual presence of @phildobbie so we can record my Balls Radio spot. Then I shall bathe and descent into Sydney by train.

via Janetter for Mac

@AwareNetConnect Yeah I think the problem is that all people are, at their core, embarrassing. Maybe I’m better without any people.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AwareNetConnect

@missdi_k Well, I’ll weigh all my options. I may get desperate.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to missdi_k

I will come to Sydney for lunch if someone wants lunch. Someone nice. Well, someone rich. And not too embarrassing.

The new MYOB thing should also have fins. I’ve always thought that the proper positioning of fins really defines new technology.

I wonder if this new MYOB cloud product now allows businesses to do really weird shit. Like, oh, import their chart of accounts.

Minister for Small Business is speaking at today’s MYOB AccountRightLive launch? Why did no-one tell me about this launch? MYOB SEKRITS!

Yeah well there’s a new zone file. Mostly the same as the previous one. Nothing to see here. Move along. Move along. What website? Shut up.

Yeah that domain was kinda using that DNS zone file, so I’d have preferred that you didn’t delete it.

I’ve taken advantage of Mistress Insomnia’s “help” by doing invoicing and implementing changes to a client’s extranet code. Before 0630.

Huh? Wide awake NOW? Because…? Oh FFS.
