The Internet of Things (IoT) and its connected devices are quickly influencing our daily lives. Although consumer goods have received the most publicity, another fast-emerging area is the use of IoT technologies in manufacturing.
Whether for the consumer or the industrial sector, testing embedded and connected devices for the IoT comes with different concerns from traditional software testing. Using industrial IoT as an example, this web seminar will detail the top three software challenges IoT developers and testers face—managing security and vulnerabilities, privacy and regulations, and eliminating silos while maintaining quality—and explore the best practices for addressing them.
Anyone involved in the software development or testing of connected devices will benefit from this web seminar. You will learn:
How to effectively manage and maintain an ongoing security assessment for your products
How to navigate existing and future connectivity regulations and privacy
What software testing tools and processes provide the biggest impact
December is a great time to threat yourself and get familiar with something new or to refine existing skills. Find below list of upcoming online events, I believe most of them worth to attend.
Secure Software Requires the Right Tools. Synopsys cybersecurity expert Jonathan Khudsen will tell about classes of tools work best for locating vulnerabilities and how to use them in the context of product development. Date and time: 13.12.2016, 2:00 PM ET. Free, registration required.
The Future of Test Automation: Leading Experts Share Their Vision for 2017. Test Automation gurus Dave Haeffner, Jim Evans, Simon Stewart and Brian Jordan, about to discuss emerging trends, skills, and best practices that will shape your testing environment during 2017. English language. Date and time: 15.12.2016, 10:00-11:00 AM PST. As usual, event is free but registration required.
HP invites to discover a HPE User Behavior Analytics, some kind of enterprise DLP (data leak prevention) system with fraud-assessment abilities. Russian language. Date and time: 16.12.2016, 11:00-12:30 (MSK). Free, but registration requried.
Systems exploits, intrusions, and stolen data are more prevalent than ever. It seems there are daily headlines related to system security and privacy. Many, if not most, of these incidents could have been prevented with more secure coding practices. Software and systems are more connected than ever, often in ways that were not originally designed leading to unforeseen and unprotected attack vectors.
The CERT Secure Coding Standards are lists of rules and recommendations for developing secure software. In this webinar, we will discuss how you can improve your organization’s secure coding capabilities. We will discuss how to improve your workforce, processes, and tools to develop and verify the security of your software before it is deployed. We will also explain how the CERT Secure Coding Standards can help and how you can adopt them through training, tools, and process improvements.
Donald Firesmith in collaboration with Software Engineering Institute and Carnegie Mellon University presenting this online webinar which is going to be started on Wednesday, Sep 9, 2015 at 1:30 PM ET. Here is original description of the event:
«A surprisingly large number of different types of testing exist and are used during the development and operation of software-reliant systems. We have identified nearly 200 of these general types of testing and there are many additional types that are application-domain specific. While most testers, test managers, and other testing stakeholders are quite knowledgeable about a relatively small number of testing types, many people know very little about most of them and are unaware that others even exist.
Understanding these different types of testing is important because different types of testing tend to uncover different types of defects and multiple testing types are needed to achieve sufficiently low levels of residual defects. Whereas not all of these testing types are relevant on all projects, a complete taxonomy can be very used to help discover the ones that are appropriate and ensure than no relevant type of testing is accidentally overlooked. Such a taxonomy can also be useful as a way to organize and prioritize one’s study of testing.
This tutorial introduces the attendee to our taxonomy of testing types, thereby clarifying the grand scope of testing and enabling the attendee to better select the appropriate types of testing to for their specific needs.»
It’s online webinar and participation is free, but registration on event is required (click here).
