Weekly Update 152

I made it out of Vegas! That was a rather intense 8 days and if I'm honest, returning to the relative tranquillity of Oslo has been lovely (not to mention the massive uptick in coffee quality). But just as the US to Europe jet lag passes, it's time to head back to Aus for a bit and go through the whole cycle again. …

Weekly Update 151

Well that's Vegas done. 8 days of absolutely non-stop events that's now pretty much robbed me of my voice but hey, I got a flying cow! Scott and I both spent BSides, Black Hat and DEF CON doing "hallway con" or in other words, wandering around just meeting people. The personal engagement you get from these ad hoc …

Weekly Update 150

Vegas! I'm a bit late with this week's update but I thought I'd catch up with Scott Helme and do the video together. We're talking about the events in Vegas, the ongoing Project Svalbard process, some very screwy messaging about certificates from Sectigo and the Irish government coming on board HIBP. Next week we'll …

Weekly Update 149

What. A. Week. I've been in San Fran meeting with a whole bunch of potential purchasers for HIBP and it's been... intense. Daunting. Exciting. It's actually an amazing feeling to see my "little" project come to this where I'm sitting in a room with some of the most awesome tech companies whilst flanked by bankers in …

Weekly Update 148

It's the last one from Norway before heading off to the US and diving into the deep end of the Project Svalbard pool followed by Black Hat and DEF CON in Vegas. That's off the back of the last week being focused on pushing out Pwned Passwords V5, loading several hundred million new records worth of new data breaches …

Weekly Update 147

So "Plan A" was to publish Pwned Passwords V5 on Tuesday but a last-minute check showed control characters had snuck in due to the quality (or lack thereof) of the source data. Scratch that and go to "Plan B" which was to push them out today but a last-minute check showed that my "improved" export script had screwed …

Weekly Update 146

After a very non-stop Cyber Week in Israel, I'm back in Oslo working through the endless emails and other logistics related to Project Svalbard . In my haste this week, I put out a really poorly worded tweet which I've tried to clarify in this week's video. On more positive news, the Austrian government came on board …

Weekly Update 145

Something totally new this week - Israel! I spent the week in Tel Aviv at Cyber Week , a massive infosec conference where I shared the keynote stage with an amazing array of speakers including many from three letter acronym departments and even PM Benjamin Netanyahu. It's funny how on the one hand an event like …

Weekly Update 144

So first things first - my patience for the Instamics we're wearing just reached zero. One of them recorded and one of them didn't which means we've had to fallback to audio captured by the iPhone I was recording from so apologies it's sub-par. I ended up just uploading the unedited clip direct from the phone …

Weekly Update 143

Well this was a big one. The simple stuff first - I'm back in Norway running workshops and getting ready for my absolute favourite event of the year, NDC Oslo. I'm also talking about Scott's Hack Yourself First UK Tour where he'll be hitting up Manchester, London and Glasgow with public workshops. Tickets are still …

Weekly Update 142

I made it to the Infosecurity hall of fame! Yesterday was an absolutely unreal experience that was enormously exciting: It was an absolute honour to induct the fantastic @troyhunt into the @Infosecurity @InfosecurityMag Hall of Fame today at #Infosec19 . Troy is a credit to our industry and also a really …

Weekly Update 141

Another week, another conference. This time, Scott and I have just wrapped up the AusCERT event which is my local home town conference (I can literally see my house from Scott's balcony). We're talking about the event, upcoming ones, Scott's Hack Yourself First UK tour, some funky default values in EV certs and then …
