Hi Canberra OWASPers,

  Once again, the time has come for us to gather with our appsec bretheren
and bathe in free beer and pizza. Come along to our next chapter meeting on
Wednesday 14th November at 170 Haydon Dr, Bruce. We start at 6pm and
everyone is unceremoniously kicked out at 9pm. The details are on our
website at https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Canberra.****

Once again, our offerings of beer and pizza have curried favour with the
presentation gods, resulting in yet another top shelf presenter for our
chapter. DSD's Director of Technical Assessments, Chris Brookes, has agreed
to wax lyrical about infosec tales of woe and air some dirty laundry (no
names;). Chris' talk synopsis and bio are pasted below for your enjoyment.**

Cyber Security Operations Centre - Common findings and recommendations 2
years on****

** **

Chris will provide an introduction to the Cyber Security Operations Centre
(CSOC) within DSD, including its roles, responsibilities and members. Chris
will provide a step-by-step description of how the most common intrusion
scenario against Australian Government systems occurs and progresses.
Up-to-date statistics on intrusions seen by the CSOC will also be
presented. After scaring you with that information Chris will present some
of the common findings and recommendations that DSD make when performing
vulnerability assessments and penetration tests of Australian Government
systems (at their request) and highlight why the recommendations we make
are the most important. In addition Chris will provide the audience with a
run down of some of the proactive advice DSD provides to the Australian
Government and broader community.****
