I attended our national ecrime conference last month. The speakers were all selling a product, hype was nearly as slick as the suits. The free lunch was very good but I refrained from taking freebies in order to avoid chatting to the spooks who roamed the hall, 'networking' like well chromed upper class grads attemting to touch base with the geeks. Fail.
Yeah, those things always seem more sales than education to me.

Israel’s Secret Iran Attack Plan: Electronic Warfare
This is the really scary future right here. The long and short of it is, and anonymous source from American intelligence claims Israel has been developing a strategic cyberwarfare capability for possible use against Iran.
Electronic Warfare and Information Warfare used to be considered two separate domains, one concerned with controlling the electromagnetic spectrum and the other with attacking enemy information systems, but the ubiquity of information systems and networks have made them one and the same. Why jam an early warning radar when you can introduce a virus that leaves it disabled? In the first Gulf War, coalition airstrikes targeted the major hubs of the Iraqi Command and Control and Air Defense networks, breaking the network by destroying its critical infrastructure. In the last two decades, computer connectivity has spread like an insidious fluid, connection to a network seeping into systems most people don't even consider. Now, it's becoming possible to do what Desert Storm's airstrikes did in reverse: using the network to disable the critical infrastructure it supports.
