Anyway, the SEKRIT mission was more or less successful. Assuming beetroot salad counts as success.

via TweetDeck

@shiftkey Indeed. It may well involve more drinks shortly, but right now the SEKRIT bit is dragging on.

via TweetDeck in reply to shiftkey

This SEKRIT mission is in grave danger of turning into an omnishambles.

via TweetDeck

NBN presumably stands for “Now!?!? Bloody Never!”

I’ve departed for the day, ‘cos I don’t have the energy for a long dinner, and a SEKRIT mission is under way.

via Plume for Android

@PointZeroOne @BundyB @SwiftKey Yep. Why would you not have it turned on, I wonder? Illiterate people? Culturally insensitive arsehats?

I see @MikePBurgess spoke about Telstra’s 5 Knows of Cyber Security. We listed / linked to them in June. zdnet.com/article/telstr…

@brentspargo 15” max specs, yes. Then with the Zoom H6 as audio interface.

via TweetDeck in reply to brentspargo

@brentspargo But, I will say that the plan to do the occasional complex live-streamed audio program will certainly be possible.

via TweetDeck in reply to brentspargo

@brentspargo It’s remarkably fast, thank you. I haven’t done the full test of how much audio it can grunt yet. Those plans move slowly.

I’ll be skipping the sessions through until lunch, because I have to do some writing now.

@Teknofish @BlogsofWar So there was this tweet..twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…Si No-one is saying these are new types of things.

via TweetDeck in reply to Teknofish

Much of that is about trying to find out about our mining and energy industries.

Aziz says incidence of cyber espionage against AU targets is significsantly higher than average.

“Attribution and threat intelligence are important”, says the slide from a company that does attribution and threat intelligence.

via TweetDeck

Aziz does make the valid point, though, that your network is probably compromised already.

via TweetDeck

@semibogan Do you mind? Some of us would like to get through the day without “facts” and “thinking”.

via TweetDeck in reply to semibogan

And now it slides neatly into what is essentially a plug for FireEye’s technology.

via TweetDeck

Aziz describes modern attacks as “multi-vector”, in that each element of the cycle communicates by a diffewrent method.

via TweetDeck

@jpwarren @expectproblems Excellent idea. Quickest approach of all.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

Modern attackers can do that entire cycle in 15 minutes, says Aziz.

via TweetDeck

Here’s FireEye’s model of an attack. Sorry about perspective. pic.twitter.com/r7mdL9X4uC

When Mandiant is called in to investigate a breach, average time bad guys were in the network is 205 days.

via TweetDeck

Aziz positioning is tht todsays defences are reactive signatures. I’m not sure that I agree that’s true any more.

via TweetDeck

Aziz: “Everyone has had spies, since the dawn of organised society.”

via TweetDeck

Skipping ahead to the current day, Aziz says cyberespionage is “pandemic”, and every country does offensive cyber.

Aziz reminds us that the first viirus was the floppy-spread Elk Cloner of 1993. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elk_Cloner

Next up, Ashar Aziz, Founder, Vice Chairman of Board & Chief Strategy Officer, FireEye.

In response to Q about drawing the line on freedom of sheep, Alastair describes an example of the bullying they deal with. Nasty.

via TweetDeck

He said “disruptive”.

via TweetDeck

“I didn’t go back into government to fail,” says Alastair. [Oh, the things I could say…nf

via TweetDeck

That’s Alastair’s challenge to the industry, to be part of this generational change in digital citizenship.

via TweetDeck

The @eSafetyOffice today released its guidelines for partnerships and sponsorships. esafety.gov.au/partnerships

via TweetDeck

Alastair on cybersafety: “We all know we’ve largely failed with our own staff,” so teaching kids a chance for generational change.

via TweetDeck

Here are those @eSafetyOffice figures for their first three months. esafety.gov.au/about-the-offi…

via TweetDeck

@leslienassar I’ve been known to do that sort of thing in columns from time to time.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

In 3mo, @eSafetyOffice did over 2000 investigations of illegal material, mostly child abuse material, most taken down 1 to 3 days.

via TweetDeck

The first bit of Alastair’s little speech, though, is to run through what @eSafetyOffice is doing. esafety.gov.au

via TweetDeck

Alastair says he’s going to issue a challenge to the infosec community, so we’ll see what that is shortly.

via TweetDeck

Next up, Alastair McGibbon, Children’s eSafety Commissioner @eSafetyOffice, and he’s already seen me.

via TweetDeck

So that was a fairly standard “importance of the cybers” speech.

@expectproblems Your software would be better if you left out writing the bugs.

Sounds like we’ll hear something of the review of cybers that DPMC has been doing. So far, the usual “online is worth billions”.

@darrenpauli @AISA_National It’s where I keep finding all your research notes. Always good for a laugh.

@LucasJamesAU @chris23 @jeffnolan I’m more looking at the similarity of numbers, a coincidence or not. Managers call it any damn thing.

@BruceHore @chris23 @jeffnolan Yep, HP had 302,000 employees worldwide (Q2, 2015) says Wikipedia. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hewlett-P…
