Episode #49 Sorry to Disturb You...

 

Sorry to Disturb You...

·      But your front doors open...

·      Your flies are undone...

·      I found your kid wandering on the street...

·      But I think you dropped your wallet...

All things many of us have said, done, acted upon OR been the recipient of over our years, and all of them taken in the spirit of the manner delivered, graciously, often with relief and a huge thanks to whomever delivered the news.

HOWEVER, in the digital realm...

·      I do say, you appear to have an open port on the Internet...

·      Um, your application has a hole in it...

·      We found your data lost and confused....

·      I think you might have a hole in your cloud...

SOME of us have tried to have these conversations with companies, individuals, and entities out in the digital realm and have been met with a variety of responses ranging from thanks AND relief, to accusation, lawyers, silence, or the FED’s arriving on the doorstep etc.

Somehow, in the physical realm when point out your mistakes, flaws and general numptiness you are happy to receive the feedback, yet in the digital realm when we do the same it’s as if we called your baby “robust with a face only a mother could love.”

What gives? How DO we give you YOUR data BACK in the digital realm without all this grief?

I mean, it’s NOT as if you realized it was gone, OR that chocolate fireguard you were sold would have slowed us down anyhow IF we did want it!

Things to ponder on and discuss this coming Thursday on the Shit Show with Evan, Ryan, and Chris

Episode #48 - Jeopardy v2 (and other interesting things... Attempt #2)

 

Well we are going to try this again Episode #47 went a different direction, so tonight we are going to to try Jeopardy again

It's time to play some Security Shit Show Jeopardy again. Hell yeah!

I will be your host Ryan Trebek 

One game, one Cham Peon. Like v1, we'll pick three contestants from our live audience to play our version of Jeopardy. Winner gets some bragging rights and a Security Shit Show T-shirt (that I'll forget to send you).

YOU THINK YOU'VE GOT WHAT IT TAKES?! 
COME PROVE IT!

After the game, I want to talk to the guys about a beef I've got. We'll have time for this too.

In prepping for the v2 Security Shit Show Jeopardy game, I got to thinking about some of the classic SNL Jeopardy skits. Remember some of these lines?

 - Category: A PETIT DEJEUNER, Turd Ferguson "why don't you give me ape tit for $200."


 - Category: CATCH THESE MEN, Sean Connery "I'll take catch the semen for $800."

 - Category: JAPAN US RELATIONS, Sean Connery "I'll take Jap Anus relations for $200."


 - Category: LET IT SNOW, Sean Connery "I'll take le tits now for $800."

 - Category: AN ALBUM COVER, Sean Connery "I'll take anal bum cover for $7,000."

And the list goes on. Some funny shit. These won't be our categories tonight, DAMMIT!

After we crown our new Security Shit Show Jeopardy Cham Peon, we'll use the time we got left to talk about this quote I read recently:

"55% of C-Suites respondents had viewed data breaches as 'not a big deal' and 'blown out of proportion' with an overwhelming 86% of consumers believing that data breaches are in fact 'a big deal'."

Or, maybe we'll talk about this new Presidential Executive Order that just came out yesterday. No shortage of shit going on around this industry, is there?!

This will be another fun Shit Show!

Episode #46 Lawnmower Man





My Retirement Plan:



Is to head to New Zealand

Somewhere nice and remote

With good power (Wind farm, etc.)

Good internet (Wire and Satellite)



AND a nice AS/400 to live in

If I have my way, and I think well get there before I go too much more senile given the work being done on untangling some of the innerworkings of the brain, I should be at a point where not only can my current intelligent system recognize when I want a cuppa tea, but it can also figure out why.

As I’m helping TO push the boundaries of integration, I’ve every confidence that a digital version of me will be coursing around the Interwebs before I’m pushing up daisies. Which brings a WHOLE heap of questions.

What makes us human?

Are we just quarks and binding energy?

Is there really something else to this?

Can we be broken down into pulses?

Where are the limits? (if any)

So, for now, I’m going to hang out in my AS/400 and watch things unfold AND if it looks really dodgy I’m going to work out a way to simply fire my digital self into space as a set of waves and see what the hell happens…

Lawnmower man, here we come!


Join Evan Francen Ryan Cloutier, CISSP Rachel Arnold and I this evening on the #shitshow to discuss.
