2/16 Silencing expert voices in the cybersecurity discussion space is a
strategy for weakness not strength, as any Red Team expert would tell
you. #CyberCon #CensorCon
3/16 The @CyberGovAU removed me from the #AISA #CyberCon speakers list
8 days b4 the event. Reason: my talk content was 'incongruent' w/ the
largest cybersec conf in AU. Yet they had not seen my talk content yet.
#CensorCon #cyber #infosec #cybersecurity #informationsecurity
4/16 #CyberCon removed me from the speakers list based on my talk title
alone. I'm not the only speaker removed: @Thomas_Drake1 was also disinvited. Others
told to alter format. #CensorCon #cyber #infosec #cybersecurity #informationsecurity

As part of our @NASSorg #NCSAM IT Director spotlight, we wanted to highlight a few key partners in state #cybersecurity.

The first one up is @CISAgov's @CISAManfra. Follow along with this 5 Q&A thread...
Q1: Can you walk us through a day in the life as the Assistant Director for Cybersecurity for @CISAgov?

A1: The thing about cybersecurity is no 2 days are the same & you need to be ready for anything. My day typically starts with reviewing the news & current intelligence &...
A1 cont'd:...receiving updates from my team on operational priorities. Based on this, we determine appropriate actions. This could mean speaking with gov’t partners to declassify information about urgent threats or meeting with @NASSorg to discuss next steps on election security.

Wenn bei der ÖVP Tatsächlich ein Hacker am Werk war muss das BVT unmittelbar die gesamte Infrastruktur der ÖVP konfiszieren um eine Manipulation der Beweise durch die ÖVP ausschließen zu können. Eine Beweissicherung in diesem Umfang wird wohl mehrere Monate in Anspruch nehmen 1/
Damit ist die ÖVP wenige Wochen vor der Wahl handlungsunfähig. Das betrifft alles, jeden Router, jedes Notebook, jeden Server, jedes Mobiltelefon. Sollte das nicht passieren kann man das als FAKE NEWS abtun. Wenn es passiert ist die ÖVP wenige Wochen vor der Wahl nicht mehr 2/
Handlungsfähig. Nur damit die Tragweite der Aussagen des „unabhängigen“ Cybersecurity Experten und der ÖVP im richtigen Kontext stehen. 3/3

This afternoon, Twitter and Facebook announced they identified and took down a significant disinformation campaign backed by the Chinese government and aimed at undermining the legitimacy of the protests in Hong Kong. Twitter removed 200,000+ accounts.…
"As Twitter is blocked in PRC, many of these accounts accessed Twitter using VPNs. However, some accounts accessed Twitter from specific unblocked IP addresses originating in mainland China."
Twitter followed up this takedown with another major announcement: Twitter will no longer accept advertising from state-controlled (either financially or editorially) news media. Presumably, this should apply to RT, Sputnik, Xinhua, etc.…

A thread about #journalism and #infosec/#cybersecurity.

I hear ALL the time from executives who read about infosec issues in the news and want to know more. Journalists are the most important part of the education and information component of #cybersecurity.
I consider journalists part of #infosec - not outside of it. They serve their purpose like a Firewall admin serves theirs for the larger #cybersecurity space. I've never met a malicious journalist, not saying they're out there but, almost all have good intentions.
Most journalists have a non-technical background. This is changing but it is still the case. Just like many of #infosec who came from a non-traditional background and joined our space we need to be supportive and mentor them.

After my tweet about the Tuwaiq bootcamp, I had some people DM me on how to get started on you own in #cybersecurity as I mentioned.

Here are some general resources.


If you want to set up a more advanced lab, I created this video guide to great a free lab in the cloud.
In my opinion you have 2 tracks:
- Fast Track, (aka get rich quick scam), it pays out less in the long run,
- Right way, takes longer by building up the right skills to become an expert.

1) The "Fast Track" is what most people want today, is from zero to cybersecurity expert.

Does cybersecurity *suffer* from a rational discourse? YouTube's "Hot Mess" channel discusses a growing need to "respond[] to the science through fear, and that made me a much more committed, much more engaged climate person than I had ever benn before."
*Should* we apply hysteria to #cybersecurity? "That's what many people have found so surprising: that fear can actually make people more engaged... Maybe [psychologists are wrong] at least for some people... Fear is an incredibly powerful motivator."
*Should* we apply hysteria to #cybersecurity? "If the science is alarming, then it's okay to alarm readers with it -- to alarm people with it -- and in fact it's the only, I think, responsible way to respond to that news."

1 of 8: On our journey to a #ZeroTrust #cybersecurity model, @Akamai is helping customers get there with us. How many of these 7 steps are you taking to adapt to a world of #ZeroTrust? (thread follows)
1. Provide users with application-only access, not network access—on a need-to-know basis, based on user identity, device posture, authentication and authorization
2. Eliminate the ever-growing list of holes punched in your firewall that expose your network infrastructure to the public internet. If malicious actors can’t find your network, they can’t attack it.

#CPEC is the backbone of #Pakistan's Grand Strategy. Enemies are keen to foment trouble in #Balochistan to sabotage the project.
A hike in terror attacks has been witnessed in the past months in Balochistan especially in areas in proximity to #Gwadar which is part of #Sabotage.
Killings of #Hazara Shias in Balochistan helps the enemy kill two birds with a stone.
1. It causes trouble in Balochistan,
2. It decreses confidence of Shias in the state of #Pakistan and leads to anger and frustration in Gilgit Baltistan, The Critical province in #CPEC.

2019 is the 50th edition of the #SIPRIYearbook. Join SIPRI as we celebrate the occasion with a 50-day countdown and share the history of the Yearbook over the past 50 years. Watch the introductory video with SIPRI Director @dansmith2020:
The first #SIPRIYearbook was published in 1969 with the aim ‘to produce a factual and balanced account of a controversial subject—the arms race and attempts to stop it’. The rise in world military spending and disarmament efforts, including the #NPT, take central focus.
'In whatever way the nuclear situation is examined, the inescapable feature is what enormous quantities of weapons have been amassed' – Movement towards a first-strike capability by the #US and #USSR, the #SALT talks and European security were a focus of the 1970 #SIPRIYearbook.

.@instagram thread: unique feature. After dealing w my son getting attacked through fake account, we started looking at past likes. Once you start removing past likes, Instagram will block you from being able to access "this feature" Overlooked #privacy #cybersecurity problem
If someone, say a celebrity with a blue check marked got attacked on Instagram, and tried to protect their privacy by deleting past likes on other people's posts, but instead got "temporarily suspended" what would the out cry be? My insta is private, not a blue check. So silence.
But. This seems an inherently poorly thought out UI/UX feature. It is clearly a feature, not a bug. Instagram wrote their algos to prevent people from securing their accounts by not allowing them to unlike past actions.
Seems to me this should be huge thing for privacy lawyers

Playing with #DigitalFire:

1/7: In martial arts, one of the best moves is to take an attacker's weapon and turn it back on them. In 2016, that's just what #Beijing did – in #cyberspace:
2/7: After #American operatives used a particular bit of code to attack #Chinese computer systems, Chinese hackers took it, repurposed it, and used it to attack a bunch of US allies.
3/7: The Chinese simply seem to have spotted a #US #cyberintrusion and snatched the code, often developed at huge expense to #American taxpayers.

Threat Hunting In #CyberSecurity : Waiting for an alert can be too dangerous.
Threat hunting means to proactively search for malware or attackers that are hiding in your network — and may have been there for some time.
Most time, the goals of these malware or attackers can be to quietly siphoning off data, patiently listening in for confidential information, or working their way through the network looking for credentials powerful enough to steal key information.

With the 2020 elections coming on strong already, I think it is important to talk about keeping yourself safe from "hacking".
When you think of hacking, most envision someone using a computer & complex code to break into your computer.
#Hacking can take many forms, many can be done done over the phone or through email messages. These scams are known as #Phishing.
Example: A phone call where someone asks you for information that are common security questions:

Your first car
Mother's maiden name
Birth City
They might pretend to be from your bank, your email or internet service provider, or your mortgage lender. They might pose as someone looking to verify your identity because of "unusual activity". This can come many ways, e.g. via a phone call, text message or email.
