And the proudest moment: Grand Final Premiers 2005. (Had to add that. Never thought it would happen!)

Could almost buy Trend Micro now. Who says marketing doesn’t sell?! :)

With the Ruxcon conference shifting to Melbourne this year, (details here), the Ruxcon crew have also kicked off a monthly meetup in Melbourne. Details here. Great for Melbourne and with airline prices so cheap, maybe worth considering flying into Melbourne for the meetups.

Sydney OWASP has also restarted. Details here. (Melbourne OWASP is also on the go. Details here, but get on the mailing list to get the updates for all the sessions as I don’t think the site is up to date).

If Security Management and more “generalist” security is your style, AISA (Australian Information Security Association) could be for you. Information on AISA here.

Good to see the industry busy and some great sessions in the pipeline.

Symantec Press Release 22 February, 2010: Symantec 2010 State of Enterprise Security Study……

(Time to pump out another piece of marketing to get people thinking about buying Symantec. Here’s the report if you are interested in wasting a few minutes).

Just reading this now…….wooo…..hang on……what I don’t see anywhere in this report is a proud statement that Symantec customers are the lucky few that are safe from malicious attacks that other businesses are facing.

Why is this not in there Symantec? Surely you should be beating your own drums given you so proudly told us all some time ago that your product(s), and I quote; will provide “…proactive protection against unknown and zero-day threats”. It’s the Symantec Guarantee!

As such, surely Symantec customers do not have the same concerns as those poor businesses you mention in your study. Let us know if this was just an error on your part, or Symantec just not wanting to show off here because, surely you would not use bullshit marketing in the past?! :)

Tim Ferriss in his blog; The Benefits of Pissing People Off. Worth a read I reckon. Our industry is no different is it?

Thanks to Wade for sending me this.



Stay tuned….

Getting asked by people all the time why I do things like “Twitter” for example. As if it is something not so worthy. Background: here and here.

So have decided I would look at some of the real benefits of such applications in relation to our industry (and wider) in a much longer post. Who’s wasting their time or missing out? Is it that uncool? LOL……we’ll see.

My Rugby League team, the West Tigers, had been having a pretty ordinary year until about 6 weeks ago. They’re now 6-0 in the last 6 weeks. I had no expectations before I went overseas….(not in the running for the finals), but it was great to come back and see they had won every game while I was away! (Yes, I am superstitious enough to believe that it was me being away….but today they won 56-10 so that’s BS!) :)

Now the point of this post:

Coincidental timing….seeing a discussion on Twitter and forum here between a few people on why I don’t do presentations at large conferences.

Nice to know that people give me that cred worth discussing…thank you.

Just got back and saw this was confirmed:

CEOs, CIOs and Middle East Gov and Gov Security seems to be the audience.

Should be fun…..there is no slides…….just talk…..they accepted that….(somewhat I think). :) I prefer to just talk……

This will be an all-out session and I hope Bruce S (Keynote) will be there….Pass this link to 20 of your friends and you will receive…magically a new notebook.
