time for another Trust in Tech in the Heart of Cologne.
1. Talk – Perimeter Security
what is it and why isn’t it enough?
Lots of companies trust their computer networks to be somewhat secure. This usually means strong firewalling and the use of encrypted VPNs. You will get some insight into the fundamentals behind this and the limitations of this strategy. I will show you why you should take a more secure, decentralized approach.
We will go through some examples of attacks on network security and explore the risks and possible countermeasures. Hopefully, you will get your immediate questions answered in an extended Q&A as well as gaining some fresh perspective on your own company’s infrastructure.
Mic Szillat is a systems engineer working for the small web hosting company Uberspace, in the operations team responsible for running the physical machines, virtual machines and the network. You can also book Mic as a trainer for IT automation tooling and as a consultant.
Mic is an active member in the Freifunk movement (community-run wireless networks) and the Chaos Computer Club (a white hat hacker association).
The second talk will be announced soon, check this.
See you there,
