Short Takes – 4-1-23

The 7 Deadly Sins of Leadership. article. Pull quote: “All of this makes it essential that the characteristics that signal a tendency toward toxic leadership are “nipped in the bud” early on. Identifying those characteristics isn’t necessarily difficult, but it’s surprising how easy it is to not see them for what they are. It’s a relatively simply matter to dismiss a potential character flaw as a “bad day” or “moodiness.” But the Seven Deadly Sins of Leadership are not something you want to overlook; they are a clear warning of the potential for destruction and offer a window in time to stop a toxic leader in their tracks before any real damage is done.”

Ukraine is using cardboard drones to do battle with Russia now. article. No mention of stealth aspects of cardboard construction. Pull quote: “The PPDS flies autonomously without operator control and uses GPS guidance where available. However, the control software can work out its position from speed and heading if GPS is jammed. This makes it possible for the drone to carry out missions even under conditions of complete radio jamming, which is essential in Ukraine, where Russian electronic warfare has reportedly taken down large numbers of drones.”

Amendment proposal to TLP 2.0. document. Take careful note of April 1st date. Pull quote: “TLP:UNCLEAR MAY be used whenever the sender is not sure which TLP label would be appropriate. Recent epidemiological studies have demonstrated that the rate of TLP:UNCLEAR labelings was strongly correlated with the number of people reading the TLP-SIG mailing lists over an extended period of time. A second cohort of TLP:UNCLEAR labelers was identified at in Luxembourg after the introduction of TLP:CLEAR (the so-called “anarcho-undo-clear-labellers”).” A way to avoid overclassification issues.

Dwarf planet hosts a ring that’s unexpectedly far from the planet. article. Pull quote: “But a discovery described in a paper released today suggests we've gotten something (or maybe more than one something) seriously wrong. A dwarf planet called 50000 Quaoar that orbits beyond Neptune appears to have a ring that shouldn't be there, at 7.4 times more distant than the planet's radius. There are a couple of ideas about why the ring might survive in this location, but nothing definitive at this point.”

Cyberspace Solarium Commission makes four recommendations to Congress to enhance maritime cybersecurity. article. Pull quote: “The four recommendations proposed in the Cyberspace Solarium Commission report include mandating increased resources for the U.S. Coast Guard to support its responsibilities as a Sector Risk Management Agency (SRMA) and establishing an operational technology (OT) testbed within the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to identify potential cybersecurity vulnerabilities for critical systems used within the MTS. It also requires U.S. Coast Guard participation in grant programs that will ensure sufficient funding for mitigating MTS cyber risk and directing the U.S. Coast Guard to develop cybersecurity education and workforce programs.”
