It probably hasn’t escaped your notice that there’s a lot of malware/SEO/scamming whenever a major disaster occurs. A few days ago I started to put together a list of commentary (some of it my own) and resources relating to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, in anticipation of that sort of activity.
Originally, I was using several of my usual blog venues, but decided eventually to focus on one site. As ESET has no monopoly on useful information, I wanted to use a vendor-agnostic site. Actually, I could have used this one, but for better or worse, I decided to use the AVIEN blog, since I’ve pretty much taken over the care and feeding of that organization. The blog in question is Japan Disaster: Commentary & Resources.
It’s certainly not all-inclusive, but it’s currently the largest resource of its type that I’m aware of. Eventually, it will be organized more so as to focus again on the stuff that’s directly related to security, but right now, given the impact of the crisis, I’m posting pretty much anything that strikes me as useful, even if its relevance to security is a bit tenuous.
I’m afraid I’m going to post this pointer one or two other places: apologies if you trip over it more often than you really want to!
