Event description

Description

We are using our traditional "talk-pizza-talk" format.

Talk 1: Lorenzo Grespan

Explain hacking in ten minutes:

Bio: Lorenzo Grespan is a computer scientist currently working as an application security specialist for Secarma, Ltd. While his main interest has always been computer security, he also worked as a developer, systems administrator and project manager for a research effort in robotic surgery. His background is in computational neuroscience, neural networks and evolutionary systems and he likes to solve interesting problems at the intersection of people and technology.

Talk (30 minutes): Recently I had to show a 10-minute "live hack" to a non-technical audience. As an introvert and a geek my main effort was in maintaining technical accuracy, however what made the audience go "aha!" turned out to be what for me was the least significant detail of the entire demo. In this talk I will show the hack, share the lessons learned and discuss how to communicate security concerns to non technical stakeholders, higher management and end users.

Pizza and networking

Talk 2: Robin Sillem

Building a development environment that’s ‘secure enough’:

A discussion of how a team at DWP is using modern DevOps practices to create a dev/build/test platform secure enough for development of services handling large volumes of UK citizen data.
