Re: Don’t worry, where I live IT professionals still don’t have their own “guild”
Do crack coding and hacking teams or gurus not have their own loose affiliated and loosely affiliating guilds in the forms of that which is conveyed by catch-all descriptors like the Underground and the Dark Web, and into exploring and exploiting joint venturing in partnerships with customer clients with strange and surreal monikers such as the Chaos Computer Club and Unit 61398 streaming ACTive and APT Team Programs for IT members to zealously and stealthily safely and securely engage with ?
The UKGBNI MoD may even be presumed and assumed to have their own version of such a guild in the uniformed guise and disguise of a 77th Brigade, an agent of change; through targeted Information Activity and Outreach we challenge the difficulties of modern warfare using non-lethal engagement and legitimate non-military levers as a means to adapt behaviours of the opposing forces and adversaries.
Here’s hoping that
in their training after their training and field deployments, they’re not into staring at goats for inspiration, given the carnage on one’s mental state front line activity and engagement can so easily deliver in such attractive innocuous packages/sublime instruction sets to the unwary and totally unprepared and fundamentally unsuitable for an agent of change.

What is it that they say Abe Lincoln said to be remembered and never forgot? …… *
The data protection industry responded with near-universal immutable storage technology, virtual air gaps, and backup file scans. As examples we could cite Infinidat’s InfiniGuard CyberRecovery, the Rubrik ransomware guarantee and Threat Hunter, Cohesity’s security advisor, and the Quantum Scaler tape library ransomware block.
aka Bull Shitting Vapourware if you think that offers any finite degree of virtual or physical protection/failsafe security to anything or anybody, and which is certainly a real spooky problem with zero solution for many in these future new years.
