Hacking 2017
The year is 2017 and the commercial Internet is soon 30 years old. 30 years is a long time in our fast-paced times. Computers, smartphones, robots, they all became our constant companions in life: At work, in our smart home, in the airplane or on the surgeon’s table. One would believe we have come to grips with the technology. Why then are ‚hacker attacks‘ still an almost daily news item? How is it possible that large companies and individuals are seemingly becoming victims more and more frequently?
How hard is it to infiltrate systems and organizations or to tap their data? Based on examples from his work as a Security Analyst, Max Moser discusses ‚modern‘ defenses and attack techniques.

Live Hacking: How digital attackers are intruding into your systems
SySS GmbH, Sebastian Schreiber, Founder and Managing Director

Sebastian Schreiber, born 1972, studied physics, mathematics, business studies and computer science at the University of Tuebingen.

He graduated in the latter (Diplom Informatiker), and in 1998 founded the SySS GmbH in his hometown Tuebingen in order to offer high-quality security assessments.Until the present days, he is owner and managing director of this fast growing company which currently employs a staff of about 90.

Schreiber is frequently present on national congresses an the media, being an demanded expert in the field of IT security.

As a long time member, he is also commited to, e.g., the „Verband für Sicherheit in der Wirtschaft Baden Württemberg e.V.” or the advisory council of the journal „Datenschutz und Datensicherheit“.

Live Hacking: How digital attackers are intruding into your systems
During a live hacking presentation, Sebastian performs different attacks on IT systems. He shows that it is astonishingly easy to bypass protective measures in order to access sensitive information.

IT security incidents in the recent past demonstrate emphatical ly that the IT systems even in international high-tech companies and major state institutions are not given sufficient protection. Widespread IT quality assurance measures may suffice to safeguard 99 per cent of systems. However, the decisive factor is that the remaining 1 per cent vulnerability provides a target for digital attacks: Every gap, however tiny, is sufficient to render an otherwise well-secured IT infrastructure vulnerable in its entirety.

Cybersecurity topics for tomorrow – today
In this presentation, you will see an overview of the threat landscape of today and tomorrow. We will start with the latest trends in the threat landscape that are being seen today, followed by specific research currently underway to counteract the threat landscape of tomorrow. We will dive deeper into research underway in topics such as supply chain security, lightweight security and cryptography for IoT environments as well as quantum resistant cryptography and SDN. The presentation should provide participants with a good idea about new and interesting areas of cybersecurity to get involved in and look for in the future.

Three questions:


  • What do you think of the content?

  • How many people are we expecting for both Security and hacking days?

  • Are those people the same for both days?

False Sense of Security is Insecurity
Human perception” versus “Security technologies”… Whatever security tool is used, it is only one of a link in a chain, and securing a link is not enough to secure the entire chain… Therefore, the way to understand “Computer and Information Security” should be considered with a similar perception that the way „quantum computing“ works.

We need (at the personal and professional level) to makes our understanding of info security evolving from “bits” to “qbits”: accepting that there is two possible states of the security in the same time: to consider that application, or data, are not just secure or unsecure… but that they can be in a secure and insecure state in the same time.
