BSIDES Lisbon 2023

In the rapidly evolving landscape of information security, some conferences stand out as pivotal hubs for knowledge exchange, collaboration, and networking. One such beacon in Portugal is BSidesLisbon, the premier technical information security conference. Now in its 8th edition, this community-organized, not-for-profit event provides a unique platform for individuals to both present and participate, fostering an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration.

As in previous years, BSidesLisbon 2023 promises a thrilling lineup of talks, workshops, and a Capture The Flag (CTF) competition, all wrapped up in an atmosphere of intense discussion and interaction among participants. It's not just another conference; it's an immersive experience where professionals and enthusiasts alike converge to delve into the latest trends, challenges, and innovations in information security.

Char49 will be present, not only as a sponsor, but also on stage, on this event that will take place at the FMD-UL auditorium in Lisbon on the 16th AND 17th November.

"Which Came First: Cars' Safety or Manufacturers' Security?"

In the era of AI, where even choosing a car can be influenced by artificial intelligence, Paulo A. Silva (Principal Security Researcher at Char49 and Co-Leader at OWASP API Security Project) and David Sopas (Co-Founder and COO of Char49) pose a fundamental question: how seriously do car manufacturers take security?

The duo will not delve into the Euro NCAP; instead, they will unravel security issues found in online assets of various car manufacturers. Their presentation promises to be a street-legal journey, respecting the speed limits while offering insights into owning a Ferrari, a Porsche experience, and stylishly overtaking a Mercedes. And fear not, if your choice is another brand, they've got you covered.

Fasten your seat belts and join Paulo and David on this intriguing talk. No driving license required.
