In the Heart of Pure City,#Christchurch

#NZterrorAttack may have effects in future on some industries like #Tourism, #Food&Beverage and #RealEstate for #newzealand and #australia. Australian PM (@ScottMorrisonMP) Very actively responded to the situation by commenting (link); NOT only that he also defused a lot more what an #australian senator had created a hateful environment (Link); [great job PM]! at the same times, PM #newzealand (@jacindaardern) also kept the world informed time by time and clarified that there is not space for bad guys in the country or rest of the world too. She is handling the situation well., (Link ); pointing out the gun law and reimbursement for victims;

During this unfortunate , peoples and communities really acted besides this is the biggest surprise ever in their life and they might not ready to face this kind of situation but they naturally reacted and helped whatsoever they could do for them; even some wanted to do more but it was too late. Just like this lady (Link)

#IoT beyond fun, is Security Risk If not address

“Tiny IoT devices don’t have power to do really powerful security.”
Even early 1980s grade 8-bit, 8MHz chips with only 2k of RAM can do elliptic curve cryptography with a 256-bit key-length and are effectively as strong as RSA crypto with 2,048-bit key length, which is strong enough for U.S. “Secret” level national security information. That crypto is done using such little battery power that signing or verifying data on the hour every hour for twenty years would only use a slice of an AA battery.

“Security is too complicated, especially in IoT. You can never win.”
It’s true that effective security never stems from any single silver bullet. Instead, just as most good houses need a few walls, a roof and a floor, effective IoT security can be composed from a short list of crucial ingredients:

Good crypto to protect the authentication and potentially protect the confidentiality of data

    Cryptographic verification of any and all code and configuration before permitting the code to run with any configuration.

Third-party runtime security by security professionals to mitigate any vulnerabilities in the code

Over-the-air management capabilities, including update and software inventory management, telemetry and policy management for security agility
Security analytics to find and fight sophisticated adversaries who don’t trip any alarms
These ingredients are simple and strong enough to protect top brands against the best attackers.

My bad.

Thought I had entered a comment, but doesn't show - maybe I used HTML.

Will try again later,

To My Canadian friends: Although I'm currently living down in the States, I remain strongly interested in Canadian CI developments. For example, I read in last month's Canadian Business about a French school which offers a program in their School of Economic Warfare that sounds like it might offer a CI-related degree that would help some of our Canadian companies and professionals. (See:

This desire to bring and disseminate CI knowledge to Canucks was one reason that my Wilfrid Laurier University colleague Dr. David Blenkhorn and I developed and started teaching CI courses to Laurier's MBA students. We always had robust demand for the elective course and the students invariably found the competencies we taught to be of cross-functional value to their business careers. We even worked with our students in generating 3 edited books (you can find them listed on my page here on this site) that came out of our students research and experiences in our courses. Some of our students, I should note, remain with at least a foot in the CI world and are doing great

So here's my question to our group: do you feel as though you are getting the kinds of educational and training programs you need? Do your employers want you to get advanced education? Are you able to get to events that help you network and grow as a professional? 

I won't ask these questions of you and take up your valuable time without also committing to think about how we might improve the situation together. Please share your thoughts with the rest of our Canadian CI community her at CI 2020. Thanks!

Hello, thanks to Krysta for organising us. Point of interest, I am organising a conference on corporate espionage in Ottawa, April 4-6, 2011. First of its kind in Canada. Expecting about 500 people and 40 speakers (active and retired spies, security specialist, CI specialists, etc.) See in few days our website at Looking forward to exchange more with the group on our respective activities and fields.

À bientôt, Michel

I loved Canada when I visited, I sort of liked Tim Horton's coffee experience and would welcome sharing ideas between these 2 forums, sort of 'neighbours'! Thanks in advance

Hi Ted- No I heard Estelle (I think that was her name) had some trouble in Canada and moved to Belgium, which is where she's from initially? I might have that wrong but there is no more Competia that I know of.
