My talk at the 2017 ÖRYGGI UPPLÝSINGAKERFA HINS OPINBERA event

Sky

It was great to see how many people showed up for the event 2017 ÖRYGGI UPPLÝSINGAKERFA HINS OPINBERA (e. 2017 Security of government information systems) and I’m very thankful for the feedback I got for my talk.

This event was organized by the Information Security Focus Group within the Icelandic Computer Society. The goal of this event was to reach executives and managers, both from the Government as well as from the private sector and cover certain IT security issues in a nontechnical manner. I was given the task of explaining SQL injection in human terms and based on the feedback I got from the managers/executives who approached me after the talk, I did a good job. I did see quite a bit of technical people in the audience, I hope they were entertained my SQL injection in human terms talk even though I’m sure they would have preferred a more technical talk… :-)

I’ll put together a write up of my SQL injection in human terms presentation sometime in the next few weeks. The slides from my talk are available from here: http://www.sky.is/images/stories/2017-_SkjolOgMyndir/05_oryggiHinsOpinbera/Svavar_Ingi_Hermannsson.pdf.
