At May 18th the the event „Software is secure – And the earth is flat“ took place in Karlsruhe. The lecture held by asknet AG was organized by the Karlsruhe IT security Initiative. The event showed how common sense and simple rules can be best practices for secure IT systems.
The lecture presented the most important principles in software development and the technical design of secure software systems. Few simple-sounding rules, which open up to a healthy common sense, are enough, the speaker emphasized. Often however, they are overlooked, and product managers, developers and administrators can accidentally open new security gaps. After the lecture, participants had the opportunity to exchange professional and personal experiences at the networking event.
