Developers to the rescue: How to design secure and eco-friendly solutions!

There are multiple risks that threaten our planet such as the planet pollution, the increase in the energy demand, the CO2 emissions, and many others. At the same time, human and AI-driven cyber and data threats, such as cyberattacks, data breaches and deep fakes continue to be on the rise. As these risks keep increasing, next generation developers should consider the impact and the effect of their business to these risks. This talk aims to communicate methods on how to develop and operate secure and eco-friendly software-based solutions and explore the synergies between the two domains.
