I started to code again. I used Python, Go, and C++ primarily during my PhD. I have to say that I don’t like Python3, and C++ is well…. C++. I have to say that Go is a slick language, and it’ll probably be my go-to language from here on out. It’s also surprisingly fast, but mainly, it closely models C++ but smooths out most of the weird syntaxes.
I have a feeling I’m going to have a bad time at Blackhat because everything is going to be about ransomware. As an infosec person, I have a dirty secret… Most security companies don’t actually solve the problems they claim to solve.
I’m sorry to those VCs out there who thought they invested in a company that solves or mitigates ransomware. You probably should have tried to understand the problem instead of getting stuck in deal heat and buzzwords. I guess it’s ok as long as Tiger marks it up eventually right?
Anyway, the truth is that no product can solve the ransomware problem. In the same way, no product prevents hacks or data leakages. Like a hack, even with all the precautions, you can’t fully prevent ransomware from occurring, so an organization needs a strategy to address ransomware. There’s no magical panacea.
