Summary: The 10th annual Australian Computer Emergency Response Team (AusCERT) conference started today. The exhibition floor seemed unusually roomy, and regular attendees agreed that the conference seemed much quieter than usual.
Graham Ingram, who has been the general manager of AusCERT for almost a decade, explained to attendees the difference between AusCERT and CERT Australia.
"AusCERT is self funded, we are not government and we are part of the university of Queensland — we are fiercely independent," he said. "We are helping businesses mitigate cyber attacks and have been in operation since 1993".
