Australian banks face secret penetration tests

An interesting initiative from NPP (which coordinate the open access infrastructure for fast payments in Australia, PayID). Following the PayID lookup attacks that occurred in the last months, they might now perform secret penetration tests to ensure that participating banks are up to the right level of protection. 💡


What will future jobs look like?

A very interesting talk from economist Andrew McAfee on how jobs will change in the future. Yes, droids will take our jobs -- or at least the kinds of jobs we know now. In this far-seeing talk, he thinks through what future jobs might look like, and how to educate coming generations to hold them.

DevSecOps role @ Xinja

Another great new security-related role we are recruiting for at Xinja: we are looking for a DevSecOps engineer with a focus on security automation. You’ll be embedded in the DevOps team to facilitate continuous delivery of secure, quality software to the Xinja Banking Platform using DevSecOps practices and principles. You’ll need to have a broad cross section of skills along with a strong consultative approach.
You’ll work with software engineers and security experts to ensure that the right practices are in place and to take the security lead on automating the path to production to enable deployment of changes with no manual intervention and in a highly secure manner.
We run a small, crack team of DevOps engineers to help us to build out a world class continuous integration and delivery pipeline for the Xinja Banking Platform as we continue to scale at pace. You will ensure security standards are upheld and secure coding practices maintained.
You should know that we do things a little differently at Xinja. You won’t be micromanaged and will have the flexibility to choose the tools you need to get your work done. Along with the team you work with, you’ll be given autonomy on how you design and build DevSecOps processes as long as it stays within the guidance of the Xinja Software Development Lifecycle and Information Security Management System. You should be comfortable with pushing new tools and processes and challenging the norms of secure software development and deployment.
