@R_Chirgwin You’re thinking of the Deputy Prime Minister again, I think.

Mind you, @CERTAustralia is about to triple in size. That’ll make it about the same size as the incident response team of one major AU bank.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@RealNickHodge @ncsc Absolutely. Just one good Aussie cyberwombat would make short work of half those sun-starved Pommie geek-spooks.

This all makes sense, and if Australia had an economy based on something other than coal and backpackers we’re do the much the same.

Salad, ale, and comparing the structures of government cyber defence organisations. What a life!

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

ACSC includes AFP, ASIO, ACIC, but I see @ncsc doesn’t include MI5 or @NCA_UK. Cyber defence “only”, not law enforcement. Very different.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

UK’s @ncsc is very different from AU’s ACSC, in structure and mission, and is also just two weeks old. ncsc.gov.uk/news/national-…

A doctor on ABC Radio explained that the other markings on the canvas clothing were guidelines for performing emergency surgery on yourself.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

What was left were sections of the canvas casing, pre-marked to cut into items of clothing, and packets of coins in different currencies.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I soon found the kit, about person-sized, opened on the lawn in front of a cottage. The food and the first aid supplied were missing.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I must’ve turned away for a while, because when I looked again both the man and the survival kit were missing. I went looking.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Its parachute had gotten caught in overhead electrical wires, though, so I waited for a fat bearded man to cut it down.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I messaged a friend for help. He was out of the country, but promised to send help. A while later, an aircraft dropped a survival kit.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

My friends in the ute were taking ages to come back for me, so I started wandering around the town. But soon I got lost.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

She made me put on her old soiled dressing gown, over my clothes, and wait in the dusty street outside. I don’t know what I was waiting for.

I had to wait in an old house with a slightly odd old transsexual woman, who kept insisting that my presence was disrupting her aura.
