[AusNOG] Risks to country and business infrastructure

Dear colleagues,

As many of you are aware there are many gaps that have been discovered in
the hosting space and data centre centres over the years that I saw while
managing director of my previous hosting enterprise. Some of you may know
me quite intimately others who don’t I greet and say hello.

I’m now working with a select group of specialists to form a new security
service that will help assist with technology and build hardware devices
that assist in solving (not mitigating) these risks.

Examples of this include TIA942 and the Uptime Institute specs requiring
bullet proof glass yet no one has a procedure to stop 1kg let alone 100kg
of servers filled with explosives from entering our data centres disguised
as normal server equipment within fully racks brought in by clients during
colo moves.

As you may be already aware at the time I last brought this to your
attention I was asking if the risk exposed our stock market in the case
that the ASX still continued to provide colo services, as that would put
our entire share market in jeopardy..... is that still the case? Can anyone
from the asx respond?

I’ve spoken to many directors since I sold my businesses and I don’t
believe anyone has stepped up to solving this risk (including ASIO or
CSIRO) so my group will do our best to suggest the most cost effective ways
to efficiently make the devices and provide them to you within a reasonable

If you have seen gaps in technology software in business, lga, state or
federal run institutions, including airports, rail, mines, ports
authorities, banks, apra members, we need to know about it. Please email a
confidential email to chrismackozdell at gmail.com with 7 day expiry method so
that I can print off your concerns and safely store them until our group
meets for discussions in relation to your and our risks that we’ve seen
over the years.

If you could please reply at your convenience, it would be appreciated.

Kind and warm regards from Pilbara WA,

Chris Macko
Master Director
