Something I believe industry urgently needs is better standards for information exchange between security solutions. Unfortunately while TCG has had feedback from the IT community, they have received little from the SCADA or ICS community. I encourage everyone involved with SCADA and ICS security to review the specification.

Security and privacy are sometimes used synonymously, at other times they are used as separate entities, and at other times they are used as co-dependent on each other. But what is the truth?

OK, so it’s not really worthless. So what do I propose? I say scrap the whole thing. Start over.

I’m not going to promise things that I may or may not be able to deliver on, but I can promise I will stick to what I believe is a shared vision in the community for a value add certifying body. In order to change perception of the certification and the certifying body we need to change...

Ok, so after a flurry of tweets about the candidacy of others, my name got thrown in there like so much pasta being chucked at a wall. Well, it stuck in my case and I decided to run. So, if you think that I can get in there and stir up some trouble, and maybe make some changes then VOTE FOR ME in this petition...

So what is an Infosec professional? Like the Samurai we're really warriors, we're soldiers in a battle of good vs. not-so-good. We craft our skills, we increase our knowledge, we strive to be better than those who might do our Enterprises harm, breach our castle walls and loot our treasures of data and services...

The work done by security researchers on their own devices is only the beginning of what we can expect will be a deluge of medical device related vulnerabilities, and it’s worthwhile to explore some of the reasons as to why the current situation is the way it is now...
