General Manager - AusCERT
Graham Ingram is the General Manager of AusCERT. He took up the position in January 2002 after 17 years employment with the Australian government. Immediately prior to joining AusCERT, Graham worked with the Australian Department of Defence where he was responsible for managing computer security incident reporting and response for Commonwealth government agencies.
Graham has extensive experience in critical information infrastructure protection (CIP) and spent four years working in this area for the government. During this period he managed a number of major IT security and information protection issues including computer network attacks during the Y2K period and IT security threats to the 2000 Olympic games.
Since joining AusCERT, Graham has consolidated AusCERT as Australia's premier Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) and strengthened its strategic relationships particularly in the Asia Pacific region. AusCERT hosts the annual AusCERT Information Security conference, the foremost IT security event in the Asia-Pacific region.
AusCERT is based at The University of Queensland which has one of the largest networks in Australia.
Graham has a BSc (honours).
Manager of Electronic Voting, Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC)
Craig Burton has been a provider of remote electronic voting services since 1998 and was CEO of EveryoneCounts.com, which he founded, until 2008 when the company was sold to US interests. Now leading a major project to create a universally verifiable voting system at the Victorian Electoral Commission, Craig also consults to other Australian commissions on security and audits for electronic voting. Previously Craig built systems which served major elections including regional government elections in the United Kingdom, trade union elections in Canada, the Democratic National Convention elections in the USA and many others. Electronic voting and especially remote electronic voting have been described as one of the hardest electronic transactions to secure with the secrecy requirements preventing many conventional forms of audit.
Presenting: Safe e-voting - the ultimate in usable securityBanking and e-voting have little in common when it comes to security. Whether you bank online or at an ATM, you can always check your bank statement for mistakes or fraud. This is a form of verification. In paper elections you trust this check to scrutineers. In e-voting a completely different approach from banking security design and observation is needed. I will introduce some novel security work which seeks to make voting in Victorian elections electronic and fully verifiable from vote casting to the outcome of the count.
Senior Information Security Analyst, AusCERT
Jonathan is a Senior Information Security Analyst in the Co-ordination Centre at AusCERT. He works in the CC Team monitoring threats and responding to member requests for incident handling.
He holds a Master of Information Technology and a Bachelor of Arts from The University of Queensland, and has over ten years experience in the IT industry.
Jonathan has been involved in telecommunications and computer systems from an early age, is somewhat of an audiophile, and has particular interests in web-based security and development, internet radio, and electronic music production.
Presenting: The smarter devices become... the deadlier the possibilitiesWhat do cars and medical devices have in common?
Both are potentially deadly targets for hackers.Researchers have recently shown that today's modern computerised cars and modern medical devices such as pacemakers and insulin pumps are susceptible to various methods of hacking both physically and wirelessly, which could potentially cause fatal injuries or death. This presentation will reinforce that as we continue to make technological advances by incorporating computer/smart technology into everyday life, we need to seriously consider the implementation of proper security controls and authentication into these devices before human life is lost.
After over a decade as the Chief Security Officer for a certain ISP in The Netherlands, Scott's gone antipodean and now works as the Senior Technology Architecture Specialist in Security Operations for Telstra and is based in Melbourne. A regular speaker at AusCERT, FIRST and many security conferences around the world, Scott attempts to combine humour and insight into his IT security presentations. He holds several academic degrees (from BSc to PhD) but has found more value out of hands-on and real world experience. Despite being in Internet/IT security for over 20 years, Scott still refuses to wear a tie, Go Management, or give up his shell prompt. And yes, he actually stood second in line for over 7 hours to get his iPad 2. It's unclear how long he will be waiting in a queue for his yet to be announced iPad 3.
