The DeepSec team wishes you a Happy New Year 2014! We hope that you will put your ideas for the coming 12 months into reality. We have some New Year’s resolutions as well, and we hope to implement them in the months to come. Supporting rookie security researchers and fostering the scientific approach to, well, research in information security. If you call yourself a researcher, then you should employ scientific methods. It’s simple, and we will explain in ample depth what this is all about. Don’t party too hard! 😉 There’s work to be done.
Our video team gave us an early Christmas present, fresh from the rendering farm. The keynote of DeepSec 2013 by Wim Remes is already online. His keynote talk puts information security into a broader context. More often than not blaming China seems to be an easy way to “explain” digital attacks or to silence legitimate questions. Wim explores the cultural side and history in order to improve what we know about the context. Since the Internet is a global network information security experts need to broaden their horizon. For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong. Attacks, persistent or not, can become complex, and dealing with the attribution problem is definitely no easy task. We heard about it at past DeepSec conferences. So enjoy Wim’s talk, have some
We are still dealing with the administrative tasks of DeepSec 2013, and we would like to give a short update on the publication of the slides. We have published all PDFs from the talks on our web server. Some speakers are still refining their documents. We will add them to the collection as soon as we get the files. There are audio and video recordings as well. Both are in post-production in order to ensure that the content is ok and everything works (we had some troubles with broken media files and storage containers in the past). We will put the audio recordings on our web site, too. The videos will be published on our Vimeo account soon. So, thank you for attending and speaking at DeepSec 2013! We hope to see you again
