  • Hilarious: @kindervag: "You find owned systems by looking for 'black holes.' All the useless log data stops being sent out."

  • I.e., "@subatomicdoc: RT @crgonzalez: One in every 100 URLs on Twitter and 1 in 60 URLs on Facebook is malicious

  • "Nortel is longest ongoing corporate attack, going on since 2006." "@andrewsmhay: hackers only ppl at Nortel doing work! (haha)

  • "OH: is it true that EMC

  • "Q: Github recently lost all their SSH keys: as a customer, it was very disruptive: how can we keep our vendors accountable?"

  • "OH: Is it a coincidence that EMC bought NetWitness? No one fills up disks faster than infosec tools." haha

  • "@kindervag: shouldn't be much propriety corporate data in syslog. Or credit card #s. But, umm, it's happened." Haha

  • "95% of security breaches reported by someone outside of organization." (Embarrassing, but true. Infosec asleep at wheel.)

  • "OH: It's interesting that some of the grand challenges of sharing healthcare data securely already solved in advertising."

  • @kindervag: "After attending #sxsw, I know my job is secure. U'r creating probs that @andrewsmhay/I will solve for next 5 yrs"

  • OH: @andrewsmhay: "I'm Canadian. We're all fine up there."

  • "@andrewsmhay: breaches hurt small companies disproportionately, b/c can't ride out the PR damage. HBGary good example"

  • "OH: Stratfor here in Austin also shows threat posed security breaches. May not survive b/c dirty stuff exposed"

Flynn notes:

  • Stream too short: I guess I need at least 2 hours. I guess I totally changed my mind on this. Use case: coming into talk 30 minutes late. Want to see what people talked about and want to retweet/curate the good noteworthy stuff.
