Security Dialectic: Kaspersky Industry Analyst Summit

by javvad Malik with 4 comments

A tropical Island paradise, a Russian millionaire and hackers may sound like the plot of a James Bond movie, but they are actually references to Kaspersky’s industry analyst event in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, where the company was expected to divulge its plans, aspirations and research to analysts from around the world.

Four of 451 Research’s finest analysts – Daniel Kennedy, Chris Hazelton, Adrian Sanabria and Javvad Malik – attended the event.

To read an interview with Adrian and Javvad – visit 451 Research Information Security Blog.

APT Predator

by javvad Malik with no comments

When I was an intern, we found a database. It looked like – like, butchered. The old mainframe women in the basement crossed themselves… and whispered crazy things, strange things. “El Diablo cazador de hombres.” Only in the hottest years this happens. And this year the cooling system failed. We find data servers sometimes without data… and sometimes, much, much worse. “la amenaza más avanzado que el hombre” means the threat that is more advanced than man.

2014 Information Security Predictions

by javvad Malik with no comments

It’s the time of the year where people come out with their annual security predictions… I took some inspiration from these posts by Martin McKeayDave Lewis and Steve Ragan to come up with my own security predictions.

Warning – these predictions are so mind-blowingly awesome that you’ll think I really do possess psychic powers!

Warning 2 – Please seek professional advice before investing in anything based upon these predictions, stock value may go up or down, your home may be repossessed if you cannot keep up repayments.

The joys of travelling

by javvad Malik with no comments

I often document my travels which have considerably increased since I became an analyst, therefore attending conferences is part of my job.

People who travel will know that you don’t always get time to see the sites or engage in anything fun. In fact, it’s pretty much travel –  do work –  travel back. So most cities I’ve only seen the airport, the inside of a cab, the inside of the conference centre and  the hotel. as I tried to depict in this 60 second video of my trip to Paris a few weeks back.

The greatest story ever told

by javvad Malik with 1 comment

It’s December – and it’s kind of a tradition that every year I get together with the fine folk at Twist and shout to make a Christmas video.

This year, however we decided to do something different, so along with my Host Unknown companions Thom and Andy, we set out to do something serious that captures a great story.

I’m a contributor to the analogies project – I think it’s a great initiative. I don’t think Girl Cynic gets the idea though…
