Vi söker systemutvecklare och systemadministratör till CERT-SE, centrala roller i arbetet med att utveckla Sveriges förmåga att hantera it-incidenter. Sista ansökningsdag för båda rollerna är den 21 december.

Publicerad - Veckobrev

CERT-SE:s veckobrev v.19

Även detta veckobrev domineras av ransomware, framför allt cyberattacken mot oljeledningen i USA och vilka följder den får. I övrigt finns en hel del läsvärda artiklar om allt från etiska hackare till om huruvida cybersäkerhet bör läras ut till barn i lågstadieåldern. Trevlig helg önskar CERT-SE!
