False flag?
A tiny part of me (the itty-bitty ridiculous-conspiracy-theory part) wonders if the whole thing was a false flag attack perpetrated by Sony itself as a publicity stunt for The Interview.

Re: Awesome topic, great speakers
So noted, Gonz. We may not be hitting this exact topic immediately. But we've got some other great show in the pipeline, so stay tuned.

Re: Awesome topic, great speakers
@Marilyn: One hour was not nearly enough for that topic. It would be nice if we can revisit it with different speakers, so see other viewpoints. I thoroughly enjoyed that DR Radio episode. We need more!

Re: Awesome topic, great speakers
The chat thread had some good comments about the significance of this event. From CrowdStrike's George Kurtz:

I think this attack will set a blue print for others.  Can you imagine an enterprise wide crypto locker.  So instead of making a political statement, the groups will say wire $10M bucks in 2 hours or you won't have any systems.  How many companies will pay?  I bet a lot.

More here.

Re: Awesome topic, great speakers
I think the question is a no-brainer; of course it will happen again.  The technology exists and vigilantism has long been rife among those who claim the right to regulate the speech, political activity, and artistic output of others.  The questions are what can be done about it and how effective contemplated measures are likely to be.

Yes. That is something I wonder too, is it recorded at all. It will be good to hear what other would say.

Re: probably...
I think it is less about locking down the network but more about applying right security measure at the right place. If the administrator is willing to share their passwords you have security awareness and training issues that need to be addressed.

Re: Awesome topic, great speakers
Yes, I was wondering their point of view. Obviously this subject does not go away because of lack of information and disagreement between government and experts on security.

No, not really
Sorry I missed this. Exciting subject. While I doubt that Sonny attack would happen again as it was executed and impact of it, I am sure we will experience far more serious security breaches. Cyberattacks are just starting with this level of sophistication and it involves governments any more. So wait and see.
