#rexmundi why does he works in Belgium ?

it is quite simple

it is simple

the minister for privacy doesn't want the privacycommission to have more powers and more resources and the privacycommission itself told me last week that they were not responsable for the security of the internet and that they don't have the resources - maybe once the European directive on the dataprotection will come into force

so who is responsable for the security of the internet

the prime minister, well the new federal center for cybersecurity has been announced for years but after a lot of talk about who should be the general and the colonels they finally may be deciding to set it up but they don't seem to make this a priority and announce it for somewhere in 2015 while not being sure they have any funding for it

the cert, the cert is not responsable for the security of the internet, they try to handle the incidents that they receive, not the incidents they want to prevent from happening '(which is why you can't call them the firemen of the internet over here because they don't have those powers or resources)

the national bank and the financial sector have some rules and controls (although at the national bank the cell that is responsable for the itsecuritycontrols of the banks - although this is becoming internationally a big responsability - are with few and have very few powers and resources and best of all - the online companies for credit and loans are explicitly excluded from these controls without naming who is responsable

maybe the sector could do it ? yep, the sector could do it but there are some initiatives but you see that they don't work and if the same kind of controls were put into place in our fields of our economy or real life than it would be a quite bloody mess around here

so this is worse than the titanic

there is even a captain on board and the crew is underpaid, understaffed and doesn't really know what it is supposed to do

so if you were rexmundi why should you make your life difficult ?

you do some google searches and find the forms, you do some quick checks and you see if the form has an sql injection or not and once you see that there is one, you download and send an email and a number of cases you get paid and in another you get publicity

should we keep quiet about Rex Mundi

well no because if we give publicity or not, the data are there online and the data are data from our citizens who don't know that their data are leaked or are informed but that is it - they don't do anything more (not paying for another mobile number, the cost of changing your emailaddress and all your passwords, bankaccounts and so on)

the people have the right to know that this is a mess and nobody is telling them and the people who should clean it up are with too few and have too few resources and too few rights to intervene to prevent accidents from happening

it is all too well from ministers and parliamentarians of saying how bad it is

DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT NOW
