  1. I'll be keynoting at the Akamai Security Summit World tour in Sydney (it's on Thursday 28 of this month)
  2. Then I'll be doing another NDC meetup in Sydney (like Brisbane and Melbourne, that event will be oversubscribed so get in early)
  3. ixigo denies a breach (but resets everyone's passwords anyway...)
  4. These cookie warnings are absolutely ridiculous (they always were, but GDPR just continues the insanity)
  5. Ad blockers are also part of this whole problem (killing all ads - even those run responsibly - just makes the whole thing even worse)
  6. Varonis is this week's blog sponsor (watch their DFIR team investigate a cyberattack using their data-centric security stack)
