Like every year, DeepSec and DeepINTEL get to the bottom of the current state of information security. So far, 2020 has shown that surprises and critical events are always to be expected. Information security still knows no break. On the contrary: weak points in software, hardware, legislature and infrastructure are a permanent threat to digital information. So that those affected still have better chances against constant attacks, the DeepSec and DeepINTEL conferences will take place this year completely digitally via the Internet. Security can only be achieved through joint efforts. Therefore, this November, as every year, there will be an exchange between experts, users, software developers, administrators and those responsible! Solving problems instead of postponing them Hardly any other area is constantly inventing new terms like information technology. Unfortunately, misunderstandings and obscuring their meaning
Effective end-to-end encryption is a critical component in everyday and business life. Over 300 years ago, cryptanalysis, i.e. the method for decrypting secret codes, had its heyday in Europe. In so-called black chambers or black cabinets (also known as cabinet noir) in post offices all letters from certain people were secretly opened, viewed, copied and closed again. The letters intercepted in this way were then delivered. The purpose was to find dangerous or harmful news for the regents of the time. The most active and efficient chamber in Europe was the Secret Cabinet Chancellery in Vienna. This early form of wiretapping was only ended in the 19th century. And this scenario of the imperial and royal courts is now facing all European companies and individuals. End-to-end encryption is to be provided with back doors
DeepSec Press Release: DeepSec and DeepINTEL 2020 as a hybrid conference. IT security in unusual times – events enable virtual access.
There’s nothing like “business as usual” in information security. Vulnerabilities in software, malware, campaigns to attack companies and organizations as well as defending your own infrastructure know no break. In recent months, digital networking has been put to the test as the most important pillar of society and working life. It is often forgotten that not every chic app, every portal and digital trend is trustworthy. For security reasons the annual DeepSec and DeepINTEL conferences will run as a hybrid event. Virtual lectures and face-to-face presentations will be equally accessible to all participants and speakers. Digital protection has never been more important Digitization is quickly pronounced. Software is even faster labelled as secure. Unfortunately, the last few decades of security research have shown that weak points can only be reduced through consistent secure design
