Join us for Secure9 2022!

What is Secure9?

In Levi9 we believe in empowerment. We think that security should be driven by passion and genuine interest of everyone in the company. To get people enthusiastic and curious about security, we started an annual event: Secure9.
This year the slogan of the event is They call me 009. Why? Because everyone in the company is a special 009 agent, making sure we are safe, our customers are protected, and we strive together for better security.
Whether you are a levininer, Levi9 customer, Alumni or partner – we welcome you at the event.
Get into Secure9 vibe and join our force of 009 agents!

Anastasiia Voitova

Data is a new security boundary

Modern application platforms gather, process and store data everywhere: from mobile apps and web to backend services, data warehouses, ML models, and BI analytics tools. The data protection approach has switched from “protect the data where it’s stored” to “protect the data wherever it exists”.
We will talk about data security 101: application level encryption (ALE), end-to-end encryption (E2EE), searchable encryption, and zero knowledge / zero trust architectures. Then we will discuss how data security is combined with traditional security controls (appsec & infrasec) to build secure & resilient systems.

Anastasiia Voitova builds security tools for protecting data during the whole lifecycle (encrypt everything!). She shares a lot about “boring cryptography”, end-to-end encryption, data security, zero knowledge / zero trust systems, software security architecture. She speaks on international conferences, conducts workshops and training for developers, and co-organizes cybersec events.
