Hi, I’m Derek, Internode’s Security Manager.
My role is to be the classic black hatter… you know, the “what if” bloke. So I get to hunt down and fix any risks or weaknesses that are inherent in any large professional IT shop. A really important part of my job is that I also get to think about the security risks facing Internode’s customers as well as the company, and I am a vocal advocate of safe computing… I get to fix my parent’s PC too. <sigh> :)
So, onto Internode’s new and improved Network Firewall. Last week was a pretty good week for me, the improved Network Firewall was announced to our customers, at the same time we also released a new Customer Security support page where we will be putting up information about key security issues and concerns in the near future.
