Clouds, Codes and Cybers

Ah, the cloud! There’s no faster way to back your data up so that anybody can make a globally distributed redundant copy of it. Not intentionally, mind you, but that’s what we’re doing every single day; unintentionally spreading valuable customer data around the web where it is then hacked, sold, redistributed and commoditised in ways we never envisaged.

In this talk, I’m going to share many of the things I’ve learned about how data is taken from our systems en mass due to coding flaws, complacency and oftentimes, outright stupidity. It focuses on many of the lessons I’ve learned whilst running the data breach notification service “Have I been pwned”, including the ways I’ve used Azure to manage billions of breached records on a coffee budget.

This is a fun night out designed to be both light-hearted and insightful.
