DeepSec 2013 Talk: Cultural Learning Of China To Make Benefit Glorious Profession Of Infosec

Posted by on November 11, 2013 at 11:12 am

If something happens in your network, it’s an established custom to blame it on China. This approach is tried and true among the Chief Information Officers (CIOs) who have some explaining to do. Throw in the inevitable Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) and you are set. No more explanations necessary. Why is that? Well, most people […]

Posted by on September 26, 2013 at 1:23 am

The arsenal of components you can use for securing your organisation’s digital assets is vast.

DeepINTEL Schedule Update: New Talk – “Advanced Security through Network Intelligence”

Posted by on August 30, 2013 at 3:55 pm

Information related to people can be either, restricted […]

DeepINTEL 2013 – New Talk: “Hackers NG” – Dealing with the Security Skills Shortage

Cooling temperatures in Vienna bring new talks to DeepINTEL. We are proud to announce a talk by Colin McLean, lecturer in Computing at the University of Abertay Dundee in Scotland.

DeepINTEL 2013 – New Talk „Mutually Assured Pwnage“

Posted by on August 5, 2013 at 8:14 am

We have added a new talk to the DeepINTEL 2013 schedule. Karin Kosina will talk about „Mutually Assured Pwnage“ and critically explore what Cold War analogies can and cannot teach us about war in the 5th domain. “Cyberwar” has become a thing (never mind that no-one seems to really know what that thing really is). […]

Musings about PRISM and the Like, or an Appeal to Reasoning

Posted by on July 17, 2013 at 8:23 am

Spying and Distrust are not new, Full Stop. We are old enough to have witnessed many large spying programs in “real time”, starting in the 90ies and continuing until now. Everybody spies on everybody else, everybody tries to use every resource available to gain any kind of intelligence useful for the very own benefit. Alliances, […]

There was a Cryptographers’ Panel session at the RSA Conference with Adi Shamir of the Weizmann Institute of Science, Ron Rivest of MIT, Dan Boneh of Stanford University, Whitfield Diffie of ICANN and Ari Juels of RSA Labs. You have probably read Adi Shamir’s statement about implementing (IT) security in a „post-crypto“ world. He claimed […]

“The early bird gets the worm” or “Can you be faster than FUD?”

Posted by on June 27, 2012 at 9:01 pm

This is an old saying and like most old sayings it bears some truth: the first one to notice an opportunity does indeed have an advantage. But I don’t want to philosophize about “ancient wisdom” or something the like but I want to address a quite up-to-date topic: 0-day prevention, early warning systems, heuristic detection […]

Five Million, quick and easy!

Posted by on February 19, 2012 at 11:47 pm

A good friend and former colleague of mine asked me recently, whether I could give him a tip how to make 5M quick and easy. My answer was “Nothing I could think of which doesn’t involve a lot of nasty things and imply a long stay in jail”. But that’s not what I wanted to […]
