I recently had the pleasure to attend two events organized by the Digital Society Institute, one was a workshop on software vulnerabilities and one was their annual conference. For both events I delivered input on the security of security products and their evaluation (slides can be found here). The DSI did a great job of assembling people from various areas (e.g. industry, academia, politics, and research) so there was a lot of input which is not covered by conferences I usually attend. The workshop I attended also resulted in a short policy recommendation when it comes to the security of security products which can be found here.
Thanks & so long,
