Information security, one character at a time

After I’d been living in Japan for a couple of years, I wanted to share with my information security colleagues what I’d learned about Japanese society, communications, and customs — especially how those factors might affect relations among computer security incident response teams. And, indeed, I found a number of examples of how language and social norms could have a real impact on the effectiveness of incident responders.

I had a chance to talk about my findings at the 2009 Annual Conference of the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST.Org), which was held in Kyoto (pictured above) and where I gave a keynote address entitled Information Security, One Character at a Time.
