Who Needs Words for Wars?

December 09, 2012 Added by:Jayson Wylie

This article holds little validity in my mind and I’m sure that runs up the chain of the Government to President Obama who is the only one, at this time, that seems to be able to have a majority consensus for a direction or secret directives for Cyberspace activities, rules and laws...

HostDime, SoftLayer, et al, Need to be Federally Bitch-Slapped For Violating Syrian Sanctions

November 30, 2012 Added by:Jeffrey Carr

When the New York Times released its story that some of the Syrian government's websites were hosted outside of Syria, I wasn't surprised to see SoftLayer as one of the hosts. They are the company that hosted StopGeorgia.ru, the Russian forum which coordinated many of the cyber attacks...

Our Massively Dysfunctional Cyber System

November 28, 2012 Added by:Joel Harding

What should be done to stop theft of intellectual property by state actors (China) would require a Presidential Finding but our leadership structure is devoid of real leaders. That is not a political statement, that is a statement about our country...

US Responses to Cyberattacks – Circus du Jour

October 31, 2012 Added by:Joel Harding

Who is in charge? Don’t answer that, you don’t want to know. Who is in charge of our national response to anything? It depends? What do you mean? Do you mean to say that there is no one person or office, no agency or even a department with the mission of coordinating a national response?

Fact Checking Obama's Misleading Answer About Warrantless Wiretapping

October 24, 2012 Added by:Electronic Frontier Foundation

Jon Stewart boldly went where no mainstream reporter has gone: asking President Obama why he embraced Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program after campaigning against it. While Stewart’s question was commendable, Obama’s answer was puzzling because it seems so obviously untrue...

The Threat Is Real and Must Be Stopped: Clarifications And Rebuttal by an INFOSEC Professional DRAFT II

October 22, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

So far though Senator Lieberman I have only seen gross generalities out of you and others about how dire things are and how scared we all should be. Your hue and cry ultimately lacks any hard evidence for any of us to stand behind as that the issue is real and it is so prescient that action must be taken post haste...

Counterintelligence, False Flags, Disinformation, and Network Defense

October 17, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

I would like to clear the air here a bit on these terms and how they do really apply to the world of INFOSEC that we in this business now find ourselves in, one littered with military and spook terms that you may not be really familiar with.

I’m Mad as Hell about an Executive Order on Cybersecurity

October 07, 2012 Added by:Joel Harding

And as much as you might not care, if President Obama signs an Executive Order on cybersecurity, it will set the de facto standards that we all must live with. You’ll share the data and you’ll have to live with the standards...

Is a Communist or Totalitarian System Preferable in the Internet Age?

October 03, 2012 Added by:Doug DePeppe

In the West, we tout the openness of the Internet. Many attribute the Internet as playing a major part in the Arab Spring. The dark underbelly of the Internet, however, is that all this connectivity allows bad actors to connect to any target he desires...

An Open Letter to Senator Rockefeller

September 20, 2012 Added by:Richard Stiennon

Like in many matters involving science and technology, scientists and technologists should be brought into future deliberations on cyber legislation. The technologists that make the Internet operate and the security experts that battle to defend it need to be brought to the table...

There is No Need for a Cybersecurity Executive Order

September 11, 2012 Added by:Richard Stiennon

Forcing utility operators, banks, and earth resources companies to comply with frameworks based on outmoded asset and vulnerability methodologies will distract them from implementing threat based defenses. The Executive Order, if issued, will do much more harm than good...

Our Cyber Dysconnect

September 03, 2012 Added by:Joel Harding

The fact is our governments all talk across one another instead of honestly exchanging data. You, me, the engineer in the office down the hall or the President of this country or that, we can all talk about how bad things are but until we have agreed upon terms and can honestly compare apples with oranges, all we are using are empty words

August 30, 2012 Added by:Electronic Frontier Foundation

There’s long been ample evidence the NSA has been unlawfully collecting Americans' communications since the passage of the FISA Amendments Act. As the New York Times reported in 2009, the NSA was still collecting purely domestic communications of Americans' in a "significant and systemic" way...
