following up on that strange title, isoi 3 (internet security operations and intelligence), a workshop for do-ers who work on the security of the internet and its users, is happening monday and tuesday in washington, dc.
this time around we have even more government participation (we’re in dc, duh), but a bit less from academia (who can try and look at long term solutions), rather than just us security researchers, and operators (who respond, contain and mitigate incidents).
i am very pleased with our progress on encouraging global cooperation, and getting more industry information sharing going. i am also happy we are moving from “just” good-will based relationships to the physical world with our efforts, being able to take things to the next level with world-wide operational task forces and, indeed, affecting change.
if you are interested in this realm of internet security operations, take a look at isoi 3’s schedule, and perhaps submit something for the next workshop.
some reporters are somewhat annoyed that entrance is barred to them, but i hope they’d understand that although we make things public whenever we can as full disclosure is a strong weapon in the fight against cyber crime, folks can not share as openly when they have to be on their toes all the time.
the third isoi is here because after dhs ended up unable to host it, sponsors emerged who were happy to assist:
afilias ltd.: http://www.afilias.info/
the internet society: http://www.isoc.org/
shinkuro, inc.: http://www.shinkuro.com/
