DeepSec 2015 – „Cyber“ Call for Papers is online!

René Pfeiffer/ May 28, 2015/ Call for Papers

The Call for Papers of DeepSec 2015 is open! We are looking for your presentation and your in-depth training to add to our schedule. There has been a lot of activity in the past six months with regards to information security.

Getting cryptography right has been the problem of developers and academics since decades. Now everyone knows about it.

Prepare yourself for BSidesLondon!

René Pfeiffer/ May 27, 2015/ Conference

The BSidesLondon event is taking place next week. In case you have missed the tweets and don’t surf the web, check out the schedule.

Even with half of the information published on this matter, there is no way to deny it. Since the trading of data is a lucrative business, the issue won’t go away. So if you run a company or an organisation, then you might want to deal with risks and threats before they deal with you. DeepINTEL is focused on security intelligence.
