Good day Folks from HITCON 2013!
An interesting international INFOSEC day indeed! Alliteration aside – today was phenomenal @ HITCON 2013!
For yours truly today’s HITCON 2013 marked the pinnacle of success for the Red Dragon – meeting the Number 1 Hacker from the People’s Republic of China! The gentlemen was very forthright and reminded me in so many ways of the China I knew of in 1983 – earnest, open, honest and willing to share with foreigners – this my friends was the Red Dragon coming face to face with the ‘mysterious’ China Hacking boogeyman – quite frankly, there isn’t one!
What marked today’s events even more inedibly in mind was another group of Chinese Hackers who had purchased multiple copies of my book “21st Century Chinese Cyber Warfare” in order to study and reference the concept of Middle Kingdom Information Warfare Doctrine development in their home country!!!
Wow. If Chinese Hackers are buying a foreigners book, then the Red Dragon has accomplished his mission. Roger out.
The icing on the cake for today was when finished with the Keynote speech I called China’s number 1 Hacker up front on stage and presented him with an autographed copy of the Chinese Hackers new manual…sadly, this fellow wasn’t on the original distribution list with the initial purchase. Yet as he thumbed carefully through the copy in his hands, it was meant to be that he should have a copy of “21st Century Chinese Cyber Warfare” as a gift.
I wonder if all the military & political might focused so negatively on the Middle Kingdom could ever achieve such progress as we experienced today in Taipei @ HITCON 2013…
