MariaDB DAY 02.02.2020 – Introducing Speakers – Dmitry Dain on Enabling post-compromise protection for stored data with Virgil PureKit security framework and MariaDB database.

As the first MariaDB Day is approaching we begin introducing our speakers. Dmitry Dain will talk about Enabling post-compromise protection for stored data with Virgil PureKit security framework and MariaDB database.

If you’re collecting personal data, you’re responsible for protecting it. And in this day and age, the question of when a database will be compromised is not a matter of “if” but “when.” So how can developers protect data within their systems without hiring expensive consultants or outsourced firms?

In this session, Dmitry Dain presents the Virgil PureKit security toolkit which protects passwords and data from being decrypted even if the database itself is compromised.

Shanghai MariaDB Unconference Nov 2019

In our quest to promote development of MariaDB Server, what we have come to call Unconferences form a key part. These developer meetings have traditionally been organised twice a year, and 2019 is no exception. After the North American Unconference in New York in February, Asia Pacific was in turn with Shanghai in November. And, no, we have not forgotten Europe; expect an EMEA Unconference next year.

Hosts and environment
