Software is eating the world, but remember to brush its teeth

Vetle Leinonen-Roeim

Short talk - in English

If software is eating the world, as Marc Andreesen wrote in 2011, then security vulnerabilities are its toothaches and cavities. As time goes on, as software continues eating and consuming every industry in its path, it only gets worse.

Security vulnerabilities can come all angles, and all layers of your software system can be potential minefields riddled with undisclosed vulnerabilities - from your frontend library, to your CPU.

This talk takes you on a tour of the terrible state that is IT security, how everything is broken and we're building layers upon layers on top of insecure software and infrastructure, and will leave you wondering how we get anything done at all.
