The word "trust" seems to be misused and misunderstood in security- can you share your thoughts on "trust" and the dangers of the concept as we use it in security?
There are a lot of security people making statements about "risk". What factors do the following play in the risk equation: "whether you are feeling happy, sad, anxious, angry or disgusted; how much money you had between the ages of 18 and 25; whether, if you are a man, a woman recently touched you on the shoulder; whether, if you are a woman, there are a lot of men in the room; how well the market has done lately; which country or culture you come from; how long ago you ate your last meal; whether you smoke; how much you weigh; whether you put your feet up on a table when you were thinking about the risk; whether at least 75 people have died in an airplane crash in the past three days; whether the sun is shining; how urgently you need to go to the bathroom;"
To ask the age old question, "How can we make more informed risk-based decisions"? Or does it really go deeper than just "risk"?
What data can be collected about information security in an organization to help predict what could happen and how it impacts your risk equation. I love the Turkey analogy, I think it means you do the same things every day, and then factors beyond your control change, so how do you measure that?
What are some parallels between investing and security?

#[ DDoS Services Advertise Openly, Take PayPal] This is the result of some research that my friend Brandon Levene and I have been conducting over the past several months. These ddos-for-hire sites are typically used to cheat at videogames or express someone's rage, and operate in a grey area where we don't see any enforcement action against these sites even though they are clearly malicious. As of a couple weeks ago, ~100% of booter sites I surveyed accept Paypal as payment, and ~70% are protected by Cloudflare.
#[ Ragebooter: ‘Legit’ DDoS Service, or Fed Backdoor?] A second part in a [??] part series. We document the hilariously public life of a booter owner and some technical details of his site. His site is mostly used for cheating at video games by DDOSing the opponent and disconnecting their home connection. I tested the site and found it to be almost completely nonfunctional. The site covered here also accepts PayPal and is protected by Cloudflare.
#[ U.S. Government Seizes] For those not in the know, liberty reserve is the #1 payment processor in the criminal underground. Its structured for maximum obfuscation so you can't see where the money came from and where it's going. This takedown will cause ripples in the criminal underground before they move on to the next payment processor.
