The Heartbleed bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library that allows stealing information protected under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging and some virtual private networks.

Leading information security experts including Robert Bigman, former Chief Information Security Officer at the CIA; Mikko Hypponen, Chief Research Officer at F-Secure; Nader Henein, Advance Security Solutions, Advisory Division, Blackberry and Nicolai Solling, Director of Technology Services at Help AG, which is currently into assessing the market requirements for Managed Security Services, will tackle various subjects about Heartbleed that was publicly disclosed as recently as 7 April 2014.

“Heartbleed is exactly what happens when you stop paying attention to the details. This race to the bottom that seems to have taken over the industry with the push to consumerisation is not about sacrificing security for usability, it’s about finding a solution that does not require you to compromise on either, there is no such thing as “Good Enough” when it comes to security.” said Nader Henein, Advance Security Solutions, Advisory Division, Blackberry.
