Why is Jimmy Fallon?

via Janetter for Mac

Preparing to watch @TheRoastTV “live” on @ABC2. That is to say, removing my pants.

via Janetter for Mac

Being recognised. Bypassing certain procedures.

Being serviced by itinerant labourers. Three for five dollars.

There’s a man* on the train eating freshly made instant noodles out of their Styrofoam cup from a paper bag. He seems angry with the world.

Deciding not to head back up to the Mountains tonight. I need to be in bed earlier than that.

@scott_thewspot I gave up worrying about that sort of thing long ago. There are more events than any one person can notice.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scott_thewspot

@scott_thewspot More than a year ago. Many Australian media people were done in a batch just before Twitter opened its Sydney office.

“SSL Auto Installation Toolkit is absolutely FREE.” I’ll bet it is. And it’s worth every penny.

via Janetter for Mac

The SSL Auto Installation Tool generates the private and public keys, then delivers them “in one file” for simpler deployment? Yeah, nah.

I am cybered up the wazoo. I may have a cleansing ale before returning to the Mountains.

via Janetter for Mac

And the conference is over.

via Janetter for Mac

Byrnes repeats his message about massive infosec skills shortage. “Go ask your boss for a raise.”

via Janetter for Mac

@DylanLacey That’s a good observation. That fits with some of the stuff I’ve been hearing about People-Centric Security (PCS) as a thing.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to DylanLacey

Byrnes: If you don’t already have security policies for mobile and cloud then you’re behind the curve and you’re in trouble.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @dobes: @stilgherrian how’s your brand? [It’s a bit sore, but I’ve used the ointment.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

Byrnes: Germany showed sbove average attention to formal privacy policies. “There’s a surprise.”

via Janetter for Mac

Byrnes: CISOs in India plan broadest investment in infosec, they see security as a competitive differentiator for business.

glengyron Yup. All of them are space lizards. RT @lukehopewell: OH MAN I JUST FIGURED SOMETHING OUT.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 4:07 PM, Aug 26th, 2014 via Janetter for Mac)

These figures are a huge growth over five years ago. instagram.com/p/sJpxpEiFg6/

via Instagram

Byrnes: Infosec is getting respect. 85% of organisations have a dedicated infosec team. Increasingly CISOs report outside CIO.

via Janetter for Mac

Presenter is F Christian Byrnes, Gartner. He usually makes quite a bit of sense, in my opinion.

via Janetter for Mac

In the final session, about the CISO agenda for 2014-2015.

RT @PointZeroOne: @stilgherrian so what you’re saying is you did make the purchase? [I’m not going to discuss my personal purchasing…]

Every time I spend more than 10 minutes thinking about SCADA and OT and Smart Meters and IoT, I realise we’re screwed.

via Janetter for Mac

Perkins: There is an old-boy network associated with OT that’s fighting the arrival of IT security and services tooth and nail.

via Janetter for Mac

Perkins: “We deployed [Smart Meters] before we thought of the implications.” Yeah, no shit.

via Janetter for Mac

Perkins: “This is the quietest audience in years. You haven’t thrown any fruit You haven’t thrown any shoes.”

via Janetter for Mac

Perkins suggests that the tiny blue circle is an excellent career choice. instagram.com/p/sJHW5TCFmv/

via Instagram

Perkins: “IT says ‘We’re here to save you.’ OT says “Oh no, here comes the problem.’” It’s another big Two Tribes issue.

via Janetter for Mac

Perkins: “People are already talking about the first cybermurder, where someone breaks into medical technology.”

via Janetter for Mac

Perkins: Opperational Technology (OT) is the Internet of Things (IoT) before it became cool. It’s legacy IoT.

via Janetter for Mac

“Digital Security” is Gartner’s overarching terminology. instagram.com/p/sJD1fsiFhH/

Next for me: “Much Ado About Nothing: IT Security and OT Security Aren’t That Different” with Earl Perkins, Gartner.

Things to sample to uncover potential attacks. instagram.com/p/sI_zhQCFq6/

via Instagram

Thomas: “I wouldn’t be able to get through a presentation from EMC without saying big data. I’ve said it. I won’t say it again.”

via Janetter for Mac

New jargon for me: Frontline CIRC incident analysts are those with “eyes on glass”, as opposed to Advanced Tools & Tactics Team.

via Janetter for Mac

[Does that imply that inter-company cooperation on APT defence isn’t nearly as organised as that between AV companies?]

via Janetter for Mac

Thomas: EMC CIRC users internal cryptonyms for actor groups to avoid confusion with other people’s names. Like AV was years ago.

via Janetter for Mac

Thomas: Attribution is important to understand if it’s the same attackers coming back or a random new attacker.

via Janetter for Mac

Oops, Not EMC CERT but CIRC. Critical Incident Response Centre. Potato, potato.

via Janetter for Mac

[I won’t go through this explanation in detail ‘cos you can get it from EMC/RSA or Lockheed Martin.]

via Janetter for Mac

Thomas: The aim is to identify the attack as early in the kill chain as possible.

via Janetter for Mac

Yes, it’s time for an attack life cycle / kill chain diagram. This is Lockheed Martin’s. instagram.com/p/sI9lTpiFnU/

via Instagram

Thomas: EMC CERT is seeing more attacks against individuals, not infrastructure, to get in. Not so much the ol’ port-knocking.

via Instagram

Thomas: EMC CERT aims to reduce chaos of “battlefield” incident response and make it process-driven like an operating theatre.

via Janetter for Mac

Thomas: Important to identify the threat as soon as possible. People are making decisions under stress.

via Janetter for Mac

First session for me: Protecting against bleeding edge cyber threats, Chris Thomas, RSA.
