International Workshop on Secure Software Engineering in DevOps and Agile Development (SecSE)

General Cybersecurity Conference

 May 25, 2018 | Porto, Portugal

Cybersecurity Conference Description

Software security is about protecting information and ensuring that systems continue to function correctly even when under malicious attack. The traditional approach of securing a system has been to create defensive walls such as intrusion detection systems and firewalls around it, but there are always cracks in these walls, and thus such measures are no longer sufficient by themselves. We need to be able to build better, more robust and more “inherently secure” systems, and we should strive to achieve these qualities in all software systems, not just in the ones that “obviously” need special protection.

This workshop will focus on techniques, experiences and lessons learned for engineering secure and dependable software using the DevOps paradigm, as well as other forms of agile development.

Hackers could kill #patients by #attacking their #pacemakers, warns #Royal Academy of Engineering

Hackers could kill patients by attacking their pacemakers or heart pumps, the Royal Academy of Engineering has warned.

In a new report, security experts warned that health tech is vulnerable to cyberattacks which could have ‘severe consequences’ for patient safety.

The RAENG warned that the number of the number of healthcare devices which are susceptible to hacking is growing which not only poses a threat to individuals, but also provides a way to gain access to entire networks.

The experts cautioned that pacemakers or wearable health monitors which are linked up to the internet or internal computer networks could also provide a gateway for hackers to plant ransomware into systems, potentially crippling in the NHS or government departments.

Some US hospitals have already been infected by the Wannacry and Medjack computer viruses after hackers targeted medical devices which were not protected.

Professor Nick Jennings, a fellow of the RAENG and Vice Provost at Imperial College London said: “There is genuine harm that can be done through poor cyber security on medical devices, on future-connected homes, on autonomous vehicles, and if they are not dealt with then that will lead to harms and deaths.

Engineering #needs #cyber security #specialists to #beat the #threat

Awareness and concern over security against cyber threats is growing. It’s about much more than the risk of personal data being hacked into.

A hostile cyber attack is classed by the UK’s National Security Risk Assessment as a Tier 1 risk, putting it in the most serious category alongside international terrorism, an international military crisis and a major accident or natural hazard. The National Cyber Security Centre was set up in 2016 (as a branch of GCHQ), and later the same year the government confirmed a cyberstrategy budget of £1.9bn over five years.

And although there have been high-profile examples of cyber security breaches, including the ‘Wannacry’ ransomware attack on the NHS last year, the centre’s head Ciaran Martin recently said that the UK had been fortunate so far to avoid a so-called ‘category 1’ attack – an assault that could cripple critical infrastructure such as water or electricity supplies or financial services. He warned that it was a matter of “when, not if” such an attack occurred.

There is little wonder, then, that demand for cyber security specialists has grown dramatically in the past few years, as has demand for the services of companies seeking to hire their expertise.

SINGAPORE – An engineering director of a company was charged on Tuesday (April 12) with 53 counts of computer misuse in connection with the coverage of the 2015 South-east Asian Games (SEA Games) held in Singapore.

Tan Khoon Guan, 58, is alleged to have gained access into the settings of an access point or closed-circuit television camera, as well as changing settings or a password when he was not authorised to on June 15 last year and in the early hours the day after.

He allegedly committed the offences near the Singapore Sports Hub, including the OCBC Aquatic Centre at the hub.
The SEA Games were held from May 31 to June 16 last year.

Tan, who was unrepresented, indicated that he is pleading guilty. His bail has been extended.

His case will be mentioned on April 29.

The maximum penalty for unauthorised modification of the contents of any computer is a $10,000 fine and three years’ jail.

Vadodara Crime Branch arrests engineering student for credit card fraud

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The Vadodara Crime Branch, on Sunday, arrested an engineering student, Bhavik Gajjar, for fraudulent use of credit cards belonging to three US nationals. A written complaint seeking a probe into the scam was forwarded by Jet Airways as Gajjar used the three credit cards to book return flight tickets between Vadodara and Goa for himself and two friends to “enjoy the Janmashtmi weekend vacation”. According to the Vadodara DCB, which arrested Gajjar from his Manjalpur residence here on Sunday, the credit cards used belonged to US nationals James Wasniewski, Jim Carlo and Bet Swank. Last week, Gajjar “purchased” the data of the credit cards belonging to the three card holders from a hacking website and used the details to book connecting air tickets between Vadodara, Mumbai and Vadodara for three persons, including himself. Gajjar has told the police that he wanted to “enjoy the weekend” in Goa with his friends and needed money for the trip. DCB Police inspector Vikramsinh Rathod said, “The misuse of the credit cards was reported to Jet Airways by the card holders, who submitted a written complaint to the Vadodara Crime Branch. After conducting a thorough probe, we arrested Gajjar for misusing the credit cards.” […]

Intel Security warns of six social engineering techniques targeting businesses

The report encourages businesses to address and educate employees on the “six levers of influence” being used in the digital world by hackers. According to the report endorsed by the European Cyber Crime Centre (EC3), all businesses and employees should be aware of the basic persuasion techniques commonly used by cyber criminals. These techniques are used by cyber criminals to manipulate employees to do things they would not usually do, often resulting in the loss of money or valuable data. Many of these social engineering techniques are used in spam and phishing emails to trick employees into revealing login credentials and other key information or clicking on links to malware. The report comes just days after spear phishing attacks were identified as the key initial step in what has been described in the most daring cyber heist to date, believed to have netted up to $1bn. Bank computers and networks were breached by targeted phishing attacks, demonstrating the inherent weakness in the “human firewall” and the need to educate employees about the top persuasion techniques in use in the digital world, the report said. Despite the huge role played by social engineering in cyber attacks, a recent study by Enterprise […]
