NDC Security – Oslo
June 8th, 2020 - June 12th, 2020
This event is part of a series managed by NDC Conferences
This one is for the programmers living and working in Oslo, Norway. This conference, whilst not strctly a “Cybersecurity Conference” nonetheless is vital because secure code is IT Security 101.
The Norwegian Developers Conference (NDC) first started in 2008 at Oslo, Norway and since then, it quickly became one of Europe’s biggest conferences for .NET & Agile open space development.
NDC conferences are currently running in Oslo (since 2008), London (since 2013) and Sydney (from August 2016). They also have other conferences, in Minnesota (USA), Porto (Portugal), Copenhagen (Denmark).
The conference is now called NDC Conferences and is a 5-day conference with 2 days of pre-conference workshops followed by 3 days of conference sessions. NDC is no longer focusing only on .Net and Agile even though the majority of attendees have a .Net background, all technologies that are interesting for developers are now accepted and available.
NDC Conferences’ goal is to deliver the ultimate experience for developers. With 7-9 parallel track, high-quality seminars of some of the software industry`s best key speakers, workshops before and during the event, food served all day, live music during the evening, and live radio show from .NET Rocks!, it is now so much more than just a conference. According to the organizers, “We like to call it a festival for developers. It is a festival because it celebrates developers, the industry and those who endeavor to become masters of their specific area.”

Understanding of the Security System
In the view of the community this understanding is diverse but basically what is meant by a security system is a security that has a procedure that has been circulated in the sense that it is structured according to its application in the community or in an environment that is appropriate to its field.
Many basic things that make the formation of a security one of which is due to the threat, it is' what drives many people need security for their daily lives, no doubt that many ways have been done to minimize a crime but still a crime 'It happened one after another, for that reason CyberSecurity helps to meet the people's needs for real security.
In addition to a threat that also affects the community in meeting the needs of a security system is protection, a protection has a different understanding with the threat of the connotation of the two also has a different meaning if security is based on a threat it means that a crime will occur in place unwanted, but if the understanding of protection is an event that is ready for security itself.
Benefits of a security system
So many benefits are generated if indeed something or the field of calculating security becomes the main basis of the process that will run why because something that will be run will certainly have obstacles, then security will be the key to maintaining the overall field that will run the.
And many of the benefits of security are: keeping something valuable very well protected, increasing confidence in what is offered, the formation of a mindset or perspective that is appropriate for the smoothness of a desired process, and others.
Society must understand about security, because security benefits us a lot.
Find Out Top Cybersecurity in 2020
TÜV Rheinland released its seventh annual report on Cybersecurity Trends for 2020. The report is a collaboration between many cybersecurity experts globally, and discusses seven key cybersecurity trends which will be important to be aware of in 2020. These include attacks on smart supply chains, threats to medical equipment and weaknesses in real-time operating systems.
"From our point of view, it is particularly serious that cybercrime is increasingly affecting our personal security and the stability of society as a whole," explains Petr Láhner, Business Executive Vice President for the business stream Industry Service & Cybersecurity at TÜV Rheinland. "One of the reasons for this is that digital systems are finding their way into more and more areas of our daily lives. Digitalization offers many advantages - but it is important that these systems and thus the people are safe from attacks."
TÜV Rheinland cybersecurity researchers and experts say the top seven cybersecurity trends to be aware of in 2020 are:
- Uncontrolled access to personal data carries the risk of destabilizing the digital society
According to TÜV Rheinland, in 2017, Frenchwoman Judith Duportail asked a dating app company to send her any personal information they had about her. In response, she received an 800-page document containing her Facebook likes and dislikes, the age of the men she had expressed interest in, and every single online conversation she had had with all 870 matching contacts since 2013, says the company. "The fact that Judith Duportail received so much personal data after several years of using a single app underscores the fact that data protection is now very challenging. In addition, this example shows how little transparency there is about securing and processing data that can be used to gain an accurate picture of an individual's interests and behavior," notes the report.
- Smart consumer devices are spreading faster than they can be secured
The number and performance of individual "smart" devices is increasing every year, making them a very attractive target for cyber criminals, says the report. With the proliferation of smart devices, the attack surface could quickly increase hundreds or thousands of times, TÜV Rheinland says.
- The trend towards owning a medical device increases the risk of an Internet health crisis
Over the past ten years, personal medical devices such as insulin pumps, heart and glucose monitors, defibrillators and pacemakers have been connected to the Internet as part of the "Internet of Medical Things" (IoMT), the report notes. At the same time, researchers have identified a growing number of software vulnerabilities and demonstrated the feasibility of attacks on these products, which can lead to targeted attacks on both individuals and entire product classes, notes the organization.
- Vehicles and transport infrastructure are new targets for cyberattacks
Through the development of software and hardware platforms, vehicles and transport infrastructure are increasingly connected. The disadvantage is the increasing number of vulnerabilities that attackers could exploit – broad cyberattacks targeting transport could affect not only the safety of individual road users, but could also lead to widespread disruption of traffic and urban safety, says TÜV Rheinland.
- Hackers target smart supply chains and make them “dumb”
With the goal of greater efficiency and lower costs, smart supply chains leverage Internet of Things (IoT) automation, robotics and big data management – smart supply chains increasingly represent virtual warehousing, or any place where a product or its components can be located at any time, says the organization. Nevertheless, smart supply chains are dynamic and efficient, but are also prone to cyberattacks.
- Threats to shipping are no longer just a theoretical threat but a reality
Many aspects to shipping can be vulnerable to attack, such as ship navigation, port logistics and ship computer network. There is ample evidence that states and activist groups are experimenting with direct attacks on ship navigation systems and attacks on the computer networks of ships used to extort ransom have been reported, says the report.
- Vulnerabilities in real-time operating systems could herald the end of the patch age
In 2019, Armis Labs discovered eleven serious vulnerabilities (called "Urgent/11") in the real-time operating system (RTOS) Wind River VxWorks, says the report. Six of these flaws exposed an estimated 200 million IoT devices to the risk of remote code execution (RCE) attacks. This level of weakness is a major challenge as it is often deeply hidden in a large number of products and organizations may not even notice that these vulnerabilities exist. In view of this, the procedure of always installing the latest security updates will no longer be effective, predicts the report.
