Notes of a traveler between realms: IS and IT
Track 1

Most large and medium‑sized companies, regardless of the industry, have moved beyond just having the internal IT infrastructure. While proprietory software development is already the standard rather than the exception, this process poses new security risks and threats.

The speaker will share stories, observations, and ideas from his years of working on IS and IT projects. He will present his vision of the changing landscape of information systems around us, and how this affects the security of such systems.

The topics include: backdoors, security supply chain, DevSecOps, updates, signature‑based detection, reactive and active security, trade‑off between security and convenience, and other seemingly insignificant and longstanding issues that nevertheless affect the approach to information security.
