'''ABSTRACT:'''
 
Web application security vulnerabilities are easy to introduce and sometimes easy to find and catastrophic when exploited.
 
Even though we take care in protecting a web application with industry grade encryption and government compliant privacy
 
procedures, we leave the front door wide open if we don't take application security seriously. This talk presents lessons in web
 
security through findings in an application that jeopardized security for tens of thousands kids, parents and employees.
 
 
 
'''SPEAKER BIO:'''
 
Halvor Sakshaug is Application Security Lead at Confirmit. He holds a Master's degree in mathematics (cryptography)
 
from NTNU and went on to work as a developer. After some years these two paths converged into application security.

  • TITLE:  Privacy for mobile apps: Technical, regulatory and human challenges
    SPEAKER:  Nurul Momen  (Karlstad University)
    ABSTRACT: What is the most intimate device that you possess? If the answer is your mobile phone, you'd probably be interested in finding out how apps behave. In one end, we have a powerful device capable of collecting, monitoring, processing, transmitting data and in other end, this device is connected to hundreds of services through apps. Undeniably, users are being subjected to privacy exploitation due to the obvious reason - surveillance capitalism. We intend to turn the table around by simply asking - how do the apps behave?
