Good morning, Lausanne! Second day of Let's talk cybersecurity, strategy, ethics, values and so on.

And now, I have electrical power, thanks to @PirBoazo .

Nouschka Auwema on stage, about security of the Dutch government and critical infrastructure.

Stephan Walder, Zürich prosecutor, about prosecution of "cybercrime". (A lot of "cyber" on the slides.)

One of the examples is the hacking of the machines of a swiss coffee machine producer... He uses that as an example that not all attacks are "cybercrime".

Daniel Plohmann speaks about collaboration in cybersecurity at .

There are 120 millions domains in . Almost the size of .com :-)

was a one-person project at the beginning but it evolved into a collective project. Lessons to attract volunteers: show appreciation, keep the project simple and focused.

As with any data, lots of false positives. and were generated by the malware.

Other project by the author: , a curated encyclopedia / repository of . Lots of volunteers will be necessary. And access is for vetted people only.

Martin Dion is the last speaker at the workshop about ethical questions on cybersecurity and various answers depending on what sort of stakeholder you are.
