My week of Monday 12 to Sunday 18 June 2017 was steadily more productive than the last, despite appearances.
I did foreshadow last week that I’d be recording the pilot episode of a new podcast. I’ve put that back a few weeks, for various reasons, but as you’ll see below there will be a podcast soon.
- Mobile security is really about risk and identity management, ZDNet Australia, dated 1 June 2017, but actually published this week.
- On Tuesday morning, I spoke about the idea of restricting end-to-end encryption on ABC Radio’s RN Breakfast.
- On Thursday morning, I met with some people from Bitdefender and their external PR firm, and they bought me a coffee.
The Week Ahead
I’ll be working on the SEKRIT editorial project and writing for ZDNet, with a break mid-week to celebrate the Winter Solstice. At some point I’ll probably pop down to Sydney, but I haven’t set a date yet.
The next episode of The 9pm Edict podcast will be recorded and streamed live on Thursday
29 June from stilgherrian.com/edict/live/, starting at 2100 AEST. You still have time to support this podcast with a one-off contribution.
I’m covering the Data + Privacy Asia Pacific conference in Sydney on 12 July; the 5th International Conference on Cybercrime and Computer Forensics (ICCCF) on the Gold Coast from 16 to 18 July, I hope; the national conference of the Australian Information Security Association (AISA) in Sydney from 10 to 12 October; and Ruxcon in Melbourne on 21 to 22 October.
If there’s anything I should add in there, please let me know.
Update 26 June 2017: Edited to reflect schedule changes.
