These statistics only relate to information collated by Janet CSIRT and do not provide an accurate sample of security activity across the research and education sectors. The figures are frequently more closely correlated to the activity of CSIRT and our detection of events rather than their actual rates of incidence. For example: a successful investigation by researchers into a botnet will cause that month's malware figures to rise even though the malware may have been active in previous months.

Apparently Miranda Mowbray had been wanting to do a talk on "Things that Go Bump in the Night" for some time, and it made an excellent closing keynote for the 2019 FIRST conference in Edinburgh (recording now available on YouTube).

An interesting talk from Rockwell at this year's FIRST conference looked at how to organise incident response in environments containing network-connected hardware devices. Though Rockwell's focus is on industrial machinery, the same ideas should apply to smart buildings and other places where a security incident can cause physical, not just digital, harm. This is not the only difference: connected hardware devices tend to be much more diverse than PCs, and they are expected to have much longer lifetimes.

In data protection circles, the phrase "Safe Harbour" doesn't have a great reputation. Wikipedia describes those as setting hard boundaries around an area where "a vaguer, overall standard" applies. Famously, in 2015, the European Court of Justice struck down the data protection Safe Harbor arrangement negotiated between the European Commission and the US Government.
