verinice 1.14 available: responsive web front end

verinice.PRO Dashboard: ISO view

verinice has been released in version 1.14 and is available at the <link https: shop.verinice.com external-link-new-window verinice.shop>verinice.SHOP. <link https: www.sernet.de external-link-new-window>Sernet's verinice.TEAM has several major and minor changes packed into the release for the ISMS tool. One focus is on the redesign of the web front end. In addition, there are already some changes in the background for the newly introduced license management. The <link https: verinice.com support release-notes _self external-link-new-window notes verinice>release notes offer all details.

Redesigned web front end

The most striking innovation of verinice 1.14 is the basic redesign of the web front end, which can be used by verinice.PRO customers. This presents itself sleaker, with more comfortable user experience - and responsive. verinice.PRO users are now able to use it with mobile devices. In addition, the web front end has been upgraded in terms of security.

Newly added is a graphical analysis, which always provides an overview of the current status of information security.
It shows the implementation status of the basic protection measures and the ISO controls across all organisations/scopes. This shoul simplify the daily work of CISOs and security officers in particular. With the graphical interface, they can retrieve results in real-time and report them.

The changes are the first step of a fundamental overhaul of the web front end. Further functions will be added.

Outlook

Also new in verinice 1.14 is a comprehensive license management: Standards can be integrated directly into the tool with their original content. Licenses can be purchased in the <link https: shop.verinice.com _blank external-link-new-window verinice.shop>verinice.SHOP soon. With verinice 1.14  the preparations for upcoming versions have begun in the background. One of the upcoming innovations concerns the German modernized IT Baseline Protection.

sambaXP 2017 - schedule is public

sambaXP 2017 is the 16th event of the yearly Samba show and a nice anniversary if written in hex: 0x10 :-) The schedule is fully packed with talks from the international <link http: samba.team _blank external-link-new-window external link in new>samba team, from customers with user experience reports and vendors that integrate Samba into their products.

The complete schedule has been published on <link https: sambaxp.org _blank external-link-new-window external link in new>

sambaXP.org

. Registration is open for the conference on Wednesday and Thursday and an optional Tutorial with Stefan Kania on Tuesday to refresh your Samba skills.

This year's conference again is about the progress and future roadmap of Samba - but also the time to look back on the existing code: After a first analysis Samba is not vulnerable regarding the Shadow Broker attacks - but even besides this annoying facts there are bugs and other challenges in Samba to report about.

The organisers at SerNet love to report that Google, Microsoft and Red Hat again appear as partners and sponsors of sambaXP. With their support all Samba team members can attend the show for free and students and other younger folks can be given cost reducing grants.

This conference is dedicated to <link https: www.samba.org _blank external-link-new-window externen link in neuem>Lars Müller, who died in 2016 after long illness. He was a long term <link http: samba.team _blank external-link-new-window external link in new>Samba Team member, a good friend of many people at SerNet and a diligent <link https: sambaxp.org _blank external-link-new-window external link in new>sambaXP participant.

verinice.XP 2017 - Early Bird started!

verinice.XP

After German BSI discontinued it's own GSTOOL for information security management the tool market evolves quickly. <link http: verinice.org _blank external-link-new-window>verinice plays an important rule because it is the only OpenSource tool with a BSI license.

<link http: www.verinicexp.org _blank external-link-new-window die anwenderkonferenz für>verinice.XP – User Conference for Information Security shows how GSTOOL users can migrate to verinice and other tools and how the new German baseline security will evolve at BSI and can be adopted especially by critical infrastructure providers.

verinice.XP takes place on Februar 6th and 7th 2017 at Sofitel Kurfürstendamm Berlin (Augsburger Straße 41, 10789 Berlin) and is hosted by SerNet, the company behind verinice. Participants are IT leads, decision makers, information security officers and persons responsible for data protection in companies and public authorities.

Fokus of the first day is German baseline security, featured by German BSI. Marc Fliehe will show in his keynote how the most important IT business foundation in Germany - <link http: bitkom.org _blank external-link-new-window externen link in neuem>BITKOM e.V. - sees the future development and challenges for information security management in Germany. The second day is about the generic international standard ISO 27001. Boban Kršic from <link http: denic.de _blank external-link-new-window externen link in neuem>DENIC e.G. will give a keynote talk with focus on Business Continuity Management.

The complete program of verinice.XP 2017 will be published on the conference website in early December.

Registrations for the conference are possible online at <link http: www.verinicexp.org _blank external-link-new-window die anwenderkonferenz für>verinicexp.org, "Baseline-Day" and "ISO-Day" can be booked separately or both. A social event takes place on the evening of the first day for all participants and gives a chance for networking and even more discussions about the topics of the day. All participants have access to a cost free voucher code for the <link https: shop.verinice.com _blank external-link-new-window externen link in neuem>current verinice manual.
