Finland Security Meetup 2020

Tuesday February 4th 2020 there will be a security meetup in Helsinki Finland. I will be there speaking on Secure coding and the impact of emerging technology will have on security.

Julian Dontcheff will be speaking on “The Power of Autonomous Database Security”

Kamil Stawiarski will be doing two hacking sessions.

  • Oracle Hacking Session The live demo, presenting a real-life experience in penetration testing of the consolidated Exadata database environment
  • Oracle Hacking Session – part II. We believe so much in technology, that we stopped believing in people.

Hope to see everyone there, this will be exciting. https://www.ougf.fi/events/security-meetup/

It’s been a year long process now the book is finally been released. There are a few things I would have written different and a few other subjects I would have liked to cover. Perhaps that will come in my next book or future posts.
