There has never been a more exciting time for us to be building software. From fashion to e-commerce, gaming to energy generation - we are building incredible systems no matter where you look. Many of these technologies will improve the world, and as a software developer, I couldn’t be more excited.
However, I find myself conflicted as a cyber security person; it’s not like we have an excellent track record in securing this space so far.
I have concluded that to secure the future; we need to embrace it and understand it. (how hard could it be?). So I started collecting stories and interviewing 1000 engineers worldwide. The stories of the systems we dream of building and the nightmare that cyber security could pose if we don’t get it right, and how we could address that issue.
In this talk, we will look at these amazing technologies, their stories, and, most importantly, what we need to change if we are going to protect the software that will change the world.
