What we're about

SBA Research is a research and consulting center for Information Security based in Vienna, and calls itself a “Home of Nerds”. We thus have started hosting Meetups spotlighting all aspects of Security in 2018. By doing so we intend to establish and foster a community of people interested in IT & Information Security and related areas. As soon as things return to normal, we very much look forward to welcoming you to beer, snacks and lively discussions among likeminded on-site. Since we want to give you the chance to join from wherever you are, we will however continue to live stream all of our MeetUps in the future as well.

Our Security Meetup Group is part of the SBA Academy. Check out our Website (https://www.sba-research.org/sba-academy/), SBA Research offers a wide range of ways to transfer knowledge, ranging from freely available talks to specialized on-site trainings.

„Safety and Security – Same, contradictory or just different?“

**** Password for this webinar:[masked] ****

„Safety and Security – Same, contradictory or just different?“

When is a system safe? And what does safe mean anyway? We have two terms in English: Safety and Security. While the latter discipline tends to protect the system and its environment from intentional hazards, safety engineering deals with protection against unintentional hazards. In the last few decades, methods and processes have been defined in parallel and largely unaffected by one another to achieve the respective goals. But modern systems are different from a few years ago. The boundaries between safety and security are being softened to achieve the goal together.
This talk answers the question of what safety engineering is and how it will develop in the future.
