Talk: Code and Money - the source of all evil
Abstrakt: Eastern Europe has developed a reputation in recent years as a source location for many of the negative stories that have become part of the information security industry. A large amount of the hacking activity for money has its roots in this region.
This presentation is designed to offer a new opportunity for individuals and organisation in the region to build a reputation as leaders in the new “secure software” industry. We will demonstrate the leading problems of the recent past and offer a new paradigm that companies in the region can use to establish the region as a world leader in building software that overcomes these issues.
