Talk 2 – “Insecure by default “Insecure by default”  – the gap between modern day programming education and business  information security by Ruben

During his study as developer, Ruben realised his education lacked security within its fundaments. Students were thought how to quickly set up websites for commercial use, using deprecated code and libraries known to have vulnerabilities. When questioning his teachers they told him there was simply no room for teaching security. During this talk Ruben wants to give insight of developers that are currently developing insecure websites that are currently being used, giving examples from some students’ final exams.

Break Coffee break and Networking with Peers
Talk 3 – Hacking Demo Hacking demo by Alex
This demo will consist of practical examples of hacking a website. Instead of focusing on risk assessment, an offensive example is given of hacking a specific target with a specific goal in mind (APT).
Talk 3 – “Hacking, What Else? “Hacking, What Else?” by Marc Hullegie
Just have a strong espresso and hack! Some of “them” still consider hacking and testing being the sole answer to all their information security issues. Is it?


Talk 4 – “Vulnerability scans and their risks; looking behind the surface Vulnerability scans and their risks; looking behind the surface” by Alex
The limitations of vulnerability scans exposed by practical examples.
