- Clash of the clouds!
Registration is here - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/clash-of-the-clouds-tickets-27043330329 Have you ever asked yourself or your dev-ops why you preferred cloud platform X over Y? Try it now and prepare to be amazed at how superficial the answers will be, replies such as: "It's what I know best""That's what everybody else does""I never tried anything else""Y sucks!" (without ever trying it firsthand) Cloud is one of the most essential components of your product and everything suggests that it will grow to be even more prominent in years to come, it's also one of the most costly expenses that you're company makes so why are you condoning with juvenile reasons for picking your vendor? It's time for some research! right? Well the problem is that the offerings that exist are complicated to understand, and are not standardly documented which makes it hard to perform an "oranges to oranges" comparison and when you see representatives on stage or in person they're rarely together but prefer to showcase their goods on their own turf in heavily marketed events. This event is different, we're here for you!!! We managed to gather representatives for all four major offerings; Amazon, Microsoft, IBM and Google, we're going to put them on one stage for you to ask them the tough questions and they are: Avi Shitrit, Solutions Engineer, Google Cloud Platform Yaron Schneider, Cloud Solution Architect, Microsoft Vadim Solovey, AWS Certified Architect & CTO, DoiT International Avi Vizel, IBM Cloud Evangelist Crafted in an AMA style format we ask you to submit your questions here (https://goo.gl/forms/WGrmL5K4GrZH8GkI3).

- Who is it?! - cyber security for frontend devs #2
Register here - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/who-is-it-tickets-26681941405 Web is no longer confined to your PC or even mobile and login is by no means username password or even social. The new frontiers of B2C cyber security in passwordless behavioral authentication and physically web are far more interesting, immersive and exciting than what came before it which also makes them far more susceptible to hackers but don't you worry - cyber security is progressing as well and you owe it to yourself to stay informed.Agenda 18:00 - Gathering and food 18:30 - To know you is to love you by Yair Finzi, CEO at SecuredTouch 19:00 - Mingeling and more food 19:15 - Ephemeral Identifiers by Avinatan Hassidim, Google Looking forward to seeing you all there! About the sessions To know you is to love you by Yair Finzi, SecuredTouch Passwords are dead! long live iimplicit authentication!!! The old paradigm of what you have and what you know is almost obseolete, replaced by the question; who you are? By using sensor fusion new forms of authntication are being offered to users and developers that do not need or use passwords and are as safe or even more so. In this session we'll review a few examples of the new methods and iterate over a few SDKs and tools that will allow you to start using some of these new mathods today! Ephemeral Identifiers by Avinatan Hassidim, Google Beacons are small, cheap devices which can be attached to everyday objects, to connect them to the Internet of Things. From Fitbtis to suitcases, this technology ("Bluetooth Smart") is becoming a part of our everyday life. However, these beacons are broadcasting their identity, and can be used to follow people around. To mitigate the tracking threat (and also fight forgery and spam in the IoT world), Google announced Eddystone Ephemeral IDentifiers, which is a security layer that hides the identity of the beacon from malicious users, while enabling legitimate users to see it all the time. A lot of the cryptographic work was done at Google-IL About the speakers Yair Finzi For the past 10 years Yair has been leading hardware and software engineering groups with a strong focus on cyber security & fraud prevention products. Yair formerly served as head of cyber security department at the Israeli ministry of defense, he holds B.Sc. in Electronics Engineering and MBA (cum laude) from Tel-Aviv university and is currently the co-founder and CEO for SecuredTouch, a startup that connects cyber security, FinTech and data science in order to research and analyze how people interact with mobile. Avinatan Hassidim Former section Leader at the IDF in charge of cyber security and cyber researcher at the Hebrew Uni. Avinatan currently is involved in cyber security related development at Google-IL and headed the development of ephemeral identifiers for Beacons.

- Cyber security for mobile developers
Cyber security is a buzzword and as such it refers to a very important and large subject that is being left vague by a lot of people who have no real idea what it means and are misusing it. This is what we aim to change. In this event we'll be hearing from the best and brightest that the cybersecurity field has to offer BUT they'll be teaching us simple and useful terms, skills and patterns so that we, as mobile and frontend developers who are not cyber security professionals will be able to do 3 productive things: 1. Understand what cyber security professionals are saying when we talk to them and understand who is a real professional and who is just a poser 2. Design our products to be reasonably secure rather than embarrassingly so by teaching us to avoid common cyber security pitfalls which will be hard to patch up later on 3. Alter our analytics and QA cycles to detect and intercept possible pitfalls we already created in our products and suggest the pattern to try and resolve them Agenda: 18:00 - gathering, mingling and food 18:30 - Dynamic Analysis of Android Apps by Erez Metula 19:15 - More mingling and food 19:30 - Transcending from Digital to Physical by Yaniv Simsolo About the sessions Dynamic Analysis of Android Apps - Attacking Android apps from the inside Dynamic analysis of android apps is all about analyzing apps in real time, for the purpose of detecting application level vulnerabilities and for the sake of manipulating applications while they execute. It is often used as a last resort due to its complexity, when other pentesting techniques mainly focused on static analysis are not enough. Common usages of dynamic analysis are extraction of sensitive data from application memory variables, stealing encryption keys, manipulating signature mechanisms and so on. During this talk we will focus on memory dumps, remote debugging, smali debugging, native debugging, usage of ReFrameworker platform and other interesting things. This talk is based on a similar chapter as part of the Android application hacking course given by the speaker at recent BlackHat USA 2015 ( https://www.blackhat.com/us-15/training/android-application-hacking-pentesting-and-reversing-mobile-apps.html ) Transcending from Digital to Physical The next generation of attacks aimed at the physical realm, can be attained using the digital realm. The origins of hacking were aimed at the physical, long since have been replaced with money gaining hacks, are back with us. Since the Moore’s Law is becoming outdated, hackers possess greater abilities than ever. Re-aiming the guns towards the physical realm is highly lucrative. We will discuss and demonstrate attack vectors on the digital realm aimed at the physical realm. About our speakers Erez Metula, CISSP is the author of the book "Managed Code Rootkits", and is a world renowned application security expert, with an impressive international speaking track record in cyber security conferences such as BlackHat, Defcon, OWASP, RSA, SOURCE, CanSecWest and more about advanced application security and the founder and chairman of AppSec Labs, a leading company in the field of application security. Yaniv Simsolo, CISSP is an Information Security Expert with over a decade of experience as a Security Consultant for various industries. His primary field is application level security and back-end systems security as well as the is the CTO of Palantir Security.
- Biz-Dev Event
Please register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/samsung-tlv-is-proud-to-present-biz-dev-tickets-19930889828?aff=ehomesaved Most of us dream of creating our own startup one day. Most of us know deep in our hearts that while we have the tools to create the product of our dreams we have no idea how to reach the part where it is more than an after-hours project. A company. A startup. In this event we'll focus on the steps needed in order to go from idea to formation as successfully as possible and with the least amount of pain by answering the same questions that potential investors and co-founders will most likely ask (either you or himself): Why now? Why you? what expertise or experience do you have in the proposed field? What is your target audience and what value are you proposing for it? How would your potential users know about you and will you acquire them? What’s your execution plan? why? To help you draft the answers to these questions and more we’ve assembled experts in product strategy, branding, marketing, growth, user acquisition and user research who will provide you with tools, built on years of experience and research and countless case-studies so that you’ll know and understand what an entrepreneur is expected to know and plan for. These are critical and essentials to would-be entrepreneurs yet these tools are outside the scope of 99% of people who work at high-tech and that's what we’re trying to change in order to get more people to go out and pursue their dreams and to do so it in an easier and better way. Agenda: (18:00 - 18:25) Gathering, networking (18:25 - 19:00) Hillel Fuld - From Inception to Funded: The Necessary Steps in 2015 (19:00 - 19:45) Hanoch Rabinovitz - Become Valuable (19:45 - 21:00) Yonatan Kagansky - Rationality in an Irrational World: Embracing Irrationality in New Tech Marketing (21:00 - 21:45) Daniel Gwerzman - Forget about a start-up, let's open a pizza place Session summaryFrom Inception to Funded: The Necessary Steps in 2015 Self explanatory :) Become valuable User experience, product management and marketing are all tools for the single one thing that will put you on the road for success, and growth - the value you deliver, maintain and re-invent for your users. This tricky term - Value - is a promise you set forth when you initiate your venture, and has to deliver upon every second hereafter. It is based on your assumption that someone really need what you're working on, and it will be relevant to him when you're out. It captures your dreams and put it to test in front of the market. It is the most essential success factor you will not hear about in your MBA studies. How could you leave your innovative life overlooking it? In this session we will define, explore and track the various ways to develop and deliver value to our users, while going through a method of checkpoints, validating we are on the right track. A brief keynote, Q&A session and free discussion will be served. Rationality in an Irrational World: Embracing Irrationality in New Tech Marketing Walking around with a notion that people you target make rational decisions is like living with vision distorting glasses – it is not only confusing, but also extremely dangerous for any company. Forget about a start-up, let's open a pizza place Wait and see. About the speakersHillel Fuld Hillel is Chief Marketing Officer at Zula, a company taking on the pain of modern communication.
