Assoc. Prof. Tobias Mahler will be speaking at the Legal Risk Management Conference in Skopje, Makedonia, October 21-22 2014. The talk will address visualisation based on tool support, which is one of the many areas where lawyers can learn from the advances made in information security risk management.
Time and Place: October 28, 2014
Albert Zenkoff is going to give presentation at the “IT-Sicherheit am Donaustrand” in Linz on October 28 about enterprise security in the midst of cyber-threats, risks and regulations.
Time and Place: November (exact date to be announced), Naples, Italy
Organizer: Fraunhofer FOKUS
The workshop will be part of ISSRE 2014 and will bring together industry and science by providing a platform for discussion, interaction and collaboration. Industrial papers should either describe challenges of system or software testing that could trigger future research activities or present comparable results of applying techniques for risk analysis or risk-based testing. Our project will participate with five papers. Our contributions are detailed on our webpage at http://www.rasenproject.eu/2nd-risk-workshop-at-issre-2014/

RISK2013 – 1st International Workshop on Risk Assessment and Risk-driven Testing
November 12, 2013 – Istanbul, Turkey
The continuous rise of software complexity with increased functionality and accessibility of software and electronic components leads to an evergrowing demand for techniques to ensure software quality, dependability and security. The risks that software systems do not meet their intended level of quality can have severe impact on vendors, customers and even – when it comes to critical systems and infrastructures – our daily life. The precise understanding of risks, as well as the focused treatment of risks, has become one of the corner stones for critical decision within complex social and technical environments. Even nowadays software testing is based on risk-driven decisions.
However, classical test approaches address risks rather implicitly than systematically. Systems, functions, or modules, which are known to be critical, are tested more intensively than others. The basis of such kind of test planning is often a very simple and unstructured risk assessment, which usually is performed during or in the preparation of the test process. However, we know that humans are great in planning technical environments and processes, but often fail when it comes to the intuitive estimation of related risk.
This workshop addresses systematic approaches that combine risk assessment and testing. We are interested in innovative techniques, tools and methods from industry or research, that cover systematic risk assessment, whether to obtain risk-optimized test configurations and specifications, to underpin risk analyzes by means of experimental data from test results, or to enable domain-specific solutions that address specific kinds of risk (e.g. safety risks, security risks, business risks, legal risks).
SASSI13 – Security Assessment for Systems, Services and Infrastructures
September 19 and 20, 2013 at the Technical University (TU) in Berlin
Security failures and data breaches are impacting not only enterprises but also critical infrastructures and public services. Solely in Germany successful attacks on IT systems in cause damage by 4.8 million euros a year. At the same time, we are experiencing how the current IT landscape is changing rapidly. Just a few years ago, the Internet was dedicated to interconnect stationary end user devices. Nowadays, the tendency towards an Internet of things makes the situation more complex. Mobile devices, home automation, smart grids and even vehicles are connected via the Internet and becoming theoretical accessible and thus vulnerable to hacker attacks. However, we are more than ever dependent on a secure and mature ICT infrastructure.
One of the keys to get and maintain such a secure and dependable infrastructure is a mature, systematic and capable security risk analysis and testing program. This workshop will provide a forum to discuss innovative security testing approaches and their combination with security risk analysis. At the same time, the workshop tries to draw a line to the industrial requirements and the challenges that arise when security testing meets the demands of cost efficiency and scalability. Experts from industry and academia will present and discuss their solutions to the key issues security risk analysis, vulnerability testing, model based security testing, and standardization. The contributions are complemented by industry grade research results from four large European research projects.
