A Human Capital Crisis in Cybersecurity

Posted in News on August 2, 2010 by Skyler

With the announcement of CYBERCOM, the rise of Cyber Warfare is a hot topic in the United States. I personally feel that we are a little behind on the matter. When the importance of such capabilities was first established, there were many lame attempts to make the US seem more able than reality. For instance, the Air Force classified all of their network support and administration personel as “cyber warriors”; a title they are hardly capable of enforcing.

For those interested in cyber warfare, here is a must-read article put out by CSIS. Check it out here!

Russians get Windows Source Code

Posted in News on July 16, 2010 by Skyler

Probably the most foolish act I have ever seen. Windows is riddled with security issues, and the Russians don’t have the best reputation in the hacker community. This WILL leak. Start looking for a ton of 0-day exploits coming from Russian hackers!!

2nd Amendment and Cyberconflict

Posted in News on July 14, 2010 by Skyler

Here is an interesting post I stumbled upon. Its from one of my favorite blogs, defensetech.

The author presents the the issue of 2nd amendment rights, and cyberconflict. He presents two questions:

1) Does the right to bear arms includes cyber arms? (Germany definitely does not)

2) Should becoming a victim of a cyber attack permit you to return “cyber-fire” in self-defense?
