Q: Has there been more pressure on domain managers to take responsibility for bad stuff happening in their domains? @kverderame: Not really.

“The CISO is the person who’s going to be running operations and campaigns,” says @taosecurity, choosing tools and tactics to run strategy.

Emphasis from Rogers was that there are already ICS systems in the US that the bad guys are already sitting on, says @taosecurity.

You cannot trust that the traffic outside your premises will go where you expect it to go, says @taosecurity. Take that into account.

You dont have to tap into cables, says @taosecurity, you just advertise bad BGP routes the grab the traffic.

A mention by @kverderame of Australia’s 2-year review of cybersecurity framework, announced just the other day. [I must read the thing.]

My interpretation of what @kverderame is saying is that we’re really at the beginning of international policy coordination on this stuff.

“I do smile when industry says it isn’t mandatory,” says @kverderame, ‘cos the NIST Framework is effectively becoming that.

Adding “detect” and “respond” is a win, @taosecurity. Government previously had a tendency to just say “Do this and you’re protected.”

NASA also tells us how Orion’s onboard computer can process “480 million instructions per second”, or 30 times slower than my 8-core phone.

I love* how NASA is all futuristic and stuff, but then goes on about “miles per hour”. It’s like their spacecraft are drawn by oxen.
