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/

#Oracle Database Application #Security book is finally out. #infosec #encryption #audit #SecureCoding #PrivilegeAnalysis #OID #OAM #OIM

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.

In this book we cover Secure Coding, setting up Encryption, and audit. We also dive deep into performing privilege analysis.

“Free cheese is only in the mousetrap” #DataPrivacy #InformationSecurity #DeepFake

#DataPrivacy, #InformationSecurity all require critical thinking. Sadly, there is not a lot of that going around these days. People are purposely sending photos to have them aged without vetting the company they are going to. We are now have #DeepFakes that use AI to blend faces into composite images and video. Just google DeepNude, that uses AI to undress photos of women. The company based in Estonia closed its doors; however, if you check the website, they are now selling their product for someone else to make money off it. I personally don’t care what country data is stored in. I care about the stewardship of the information. I care about the manipulation and misuse of your data

To quote a dear friend of mine. “free cheese is only in the mousetrap.”

On the road again. #QRS19 in Sofia Bulgaria. Secure Database Design

On Monday July 22 I will be speaking at IEEE International Conference on Software Quality, Reliability, and Security. https://qrs19.techconf.org/ This is going to be a two hour tutorial on designing and coding a secure database system.

I see a lot of effort put into network and end point security; however, at the same time many organizations are only giving lip service to database security. You database is the last line of defense of your organizations crown jewels. So come on out, I will help you wrap your head around database #infosec.
