Weekly Update 74

I had plans this week. Monday was going to be full of coding work around Pwned Passwords V2 (and a few other HIBP things) then Texthelp went and got themselves pwned and there went my day writing about the ramifications of that. This is a genuinely important issue and the whole concept of the JavaScript supply chain …

Weekly Update 73

I'm not entirely sure how I've gotten to the end of the week feeling completely wrung out whilst having only written the one thing, but here we are. In fairness though, I've put a heap of work into Pwned Passwords version 2 and finally completed the data set. There's some coding work and other logistics to complete …

Weekly Update 71 (Denmark Edition)

I'm in Denmark! Well I'm just in Denmark, I'm about to head out the hotel door and into 30 hours of travel which isn't exactly fun, but that's the nature of living on the other side of the world to pretty much everything. This week's update is a little late as my Friday was absolutely non-stop in Denmark. I talk …

Weekly Update 70 (NDC London Edition)

It's NDC London! I'm pushing this week's update out a little later due to the different time zones and frankly, due to it being an absolutely non-stop week of events. I talk about those, about how I'm trying to tackle breach disclosures now and about some upcoming events. Next week is Norway and Denmark and I'll be …

Weekly Update 69 (Boat Edition)

It's my last day in the sun ☹️ Well, at least it's my last day in the sun for a couple of weeks so today I've gone to the sunniest place I know. It's "the boat edition" of my weekly update and I apologise up front for the rocking motion, the occasional wind noise (I lost the fluffy bit off my smartLav mic ) and the …

Weekly Update 68

It's 2018! All new year and already someone has gone and broken our computer things courtesy of the Meltdown and Spectre bugs. I only touch briefly on them in this week's update and I refer people to my Twitter timeline for good coverage I've shared. However, there's one resource which stands out above the others and …

2017 Retrospective

I look back a lot more than what I suspect people realise. Not in a reminiscent way, but rather because I find it helps me put things in perspective. A lot of people like to set personal goals or objectives so that there's something specific they're setting out to achieve but for me personally, I just want to see …

Weekly Update 67

It's Xmas! Well, it was Xmas but I (and hopefully you too) am still in that Xmas period haze where it's hard to tell one day from the next. Apparently, it's also hard to remember to hit record before talking about this week's updates so yeah, good one Troy! But I did eventually record a full update and in an …

Weekly Update 66

This week, it's all about fixing data breaches. Following on from my Congressional testimony last month, I committed to writing about how we can address the root causes which has led to the 5-part epic that was this week's posts. These posts consumed a huge amount of time this week which is why the weekly update is …

Fixing Data Breaches Part 5: Penalties

In the first 4 parts of "Fixing Data Breaches", I highlighted education , data ownership and minimisation , the ease of disclosure and bug bounties as ways of addressing the problem. It was inevitable that we'd eventually end up talking about penalties though because the fact remains that although all the …
