Burgess responds by saying that Telstra needs to protect any data that it holds. [So implying there’s a burden without saying so.]

Q from audience: Are there security ramifications to the government’s mandatory data retention proposals?

via Janetter for Mac

@semibogan That, and I save my rage for commercial purposes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

RT @DylanLacey: @stilgherrian IMO narratives allow people to self-generate reasons for values & to feel involved. [This makes sense.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to DylanLacey

Burgess: Need to know what data you have and a narrative around why it’s of value and how it should be handled. [“Narrative” is interesting]

via Janetter for Mac

Burgess: You have to do much more to influence your own organisation, and partners, so they “get it” in their heart as well as their head.

via Janetter for Mac

Burgess wants to focus on the human side, it’s a culture thing. Rules and values. Rules when someone is watching, values when they’re not.

via Janetter for Mac

Burgess is stressing the security-as-enabler thing, not the no-you-can’t thing.

via Janetter for Mac

Up now is Mike Burgess @MikePBurgess, CISO, Telstra.

@semibogan It’s OK. I took precautionary pills this morning.

Bar-Lev believes that “the next war with start with cyber”, that is, the oft-stated threat to power, water etc.

Currently Bar-Lev is presenting a standard overview of the changing threat landscape, leading up to the threat to SCADA.

That’s the big security industry dichotomy. “Security is essentially a people problem. You must buy our new box with blinkenlights.”
