Don't Feed the Hippos!
The security community is trying to solve insecurity caused by bugs and flaws in software for many years now, but with what success? 
We almost never look in successes and failures experiences in other areas, but we could really learn from. This talk is inspired by Ernesto Sirolli’s TED talk “Want to help someone? Shut up and listen!” about failures in the aid program’s around the world. Listening to Ernesto Sirolli, you cannot miss the similarity with the security community trying to tell developers how to write secure code.  This talk points out common failures of the security community when communicating with developers, trying to solve their problems without understanding what their problems really are. 
Using the hippo-analogy for security failures, during the talks those ‘(in-)secure hippos’ are identified, advice on how to avoid them are provided, by anecdotes and best practices from the experience of the past 10 years in the security field as a consultant.

Law and the Israeli Cybersecurity Industry
From an international perspective, Israel provides a unique laboratory for studying the effect of law and regulation on cybersecurity research and development. This presentation will provide an introduction to specific laws and regulations concerning cybersecurity research and ask whether these laws have in actual practice influenced the growth of the cybersecurity ecosystem in Israel. More specifically, how have industry players, including startups, multinationals and the military, reacted to the unique legal framework that Israel provides for cybersecurity activities?

Panel: Our Appsec Careers

While breaking and protecting is what we do, making sure we become and stay experts, work with the right people and generally have fun during our work day is just as important, if not more. Therefore we decided to hold a panel as part of AppSec IL on a topic we usually invest too little in: our appsec careers!

How do you find the right job, or the right people for the job? What is a dream appsec job and what is a real appsec job? Are they the same and if not, how do we bridge the gap. Is hammering apps a job for a life? If not, how can one create diversity and a growth path? All those are just a few of the many topics we can discuss.
