The Anatomy of Java Vulnerabilities

Java is everywhere. According to Oracle it’s on 3 billion devices and counting.

We also know that Java is one of the most popular vehicles for delivering malware. But that’s just the plugin right? Well maybe not. Java on the server can be just at risk as the client.

In this session, Steve Poole, IBM Java developer advocate, will cover all aspects of Java Vulnerabilities. He will explain why Java has this dubious reputation, what’s being done to address the issues and what you have to do to reduce your exposure. You’ll learn about Java vulnerabilities in general: how they are reported, managed and fixed as well as learning about the specifics of attack vectors and just what a ‘vulnerability’ actually is. With the continuing increase in cybercrime it’s time you knew how to defend your code. With examples and code this talk will help you become more effective in reducing security issues in Java.

The Java programmer detector

Get surprised with Java and Watson! Have you ever thought of the combination of Java and AI? Marc Decker, data engineer & data scientist, will show you how. He will give you an introduction to machine learning, followed by a live demo of Watson in action with the Java programmer detector.
