Background: Pfizer has been extremely aggressive in trying to protect the details of their international COVID19 vaccine agreements.
Luckily, I’ve managed to get one.
Because the cost of developing contracts is very high and time consuming (legal review cycles), Pfizer, like all corporations, develop a standardized agreement template and use these agreements with relatively minor adjustments in different countries.
These agreements are confidential, but luckily one country did not protect the contract document well enough, so I managed to get a hold of a copy.
Why I believe ISACA board and leadership team must resign.

My mother, who was born in a Gulag in Russia, never warned me about anything in her whole life. Last week she did. “Don’t talk. It’s dangerous. It would be really hard to find a job if you speak out”. I understand my mother, but I remember what another survivor of one of the Russian gulags have written:
“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.” (Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956)
I owe my mother, my maternal grandparents, and everyone who ever lived under a regime based on lies the commitment of speaking out when I feel truth is not being told.
Here is my truth.
“Disgrace: embarrassment and the loss of other people’s respect, or behaviour that causes this” (Cambridge dictionary)
I have been a member of ISACA for a long, long time. My first certification was CISA, which followed by CISM and CRISC. I have been a director in the London chapter of ISACA, I have many friends who are ISACA members, and therefore I am aware that it will make many of those whom I worked with and love very uncomfortable, but I feel there is no other option: I believe ISACA board and/or leadership team must resign, as they have betrayed the Code of Professional Ethics of the organisation.
SANS has been breached and everyone seems to be missing the real issue. The real issue with the data breach is not that it occurred but it’s the way SANS acted afterwards, which makes one wonder… where is the awareness?
So OK, SANS has been hacked, and there was a data breach that included Personal Identifiable Information, impacting various data subjects, perhaps also Europeans.
Pretend you’re shocked. I mean, what’s new in the kingdom of cyberspace?
How a 5½ weeks experiment helped me discover the secret of awareness. Cyber Autism, Redux.

I have been investigating the nature of awareness ever since Rephael autism took his ability to communicate with us, when he was about 18th months old. This beautiful boy, the youngest of our 3 siblings was disappearing in front of my eyes and I didn’t know what to do. The impact of his autism on my understanding of how much I cannot perceive what another human being is perceiving came a few years later, when he was still a young boy. One day, when he and his two siblings were at my place, Rephael came to me crying his heart out, but I had no idea why he is crying. That realization, this experience of disconnection between my personal experience and the perception of reality someone else is having was one of the most profound moments of my life. Before that, I was busy trying to fix Rephael. After that, I was busy trying to fix myself. My moment came when I realized there wasn’t anything in my son that prevented him from communicating with met, but it was something in my own perception of reality which prevented me from communicating with my son. I was the root of my own suffering.
