Leaking ads — is user data truly secure?

April 17, 2018, from 2:15 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. PST

Moscone South Room 208

Come hear Roman Unuchek, senior malware analyst at Kaspersky Lab, discuss app security. Roman will elaborate on our recent finding that applications made with the help of several popular advertising software development kits (SDKs) are transmitting user data unencrypted by HTTP and often fail to protect such data. See examples of how well-known apps can contain third-party code with security issues and learn how to ensure data safety moving forward.

Povel Torudd, global head of corporate communications, CSO department, will give attendees a glimpse into the lessons Kaspersky Lab’s corporate communications team learned from Duqu2, the highly sophisticated APT found inside the company’s network in 2015.

The Marriott in The Sandbox, CHV Stage

No longer just electromechanical vehicles, many modern cars are now connected, bringing new challenges to the world of security.
