As part of IRISSCERT's annual Conference on Cybercrime we run Ireland's premier Cyber Security Challenge. This year's challenge is being run for us by the Irish Honeynet Chapter The goal of the Cyber Security Challenge is to identify Ireland's top cyber security experts.
IRISSCERT's Cyber Security Challenge sees teams compete against each other in a controlled environment to determine which one will be the first to exploit weaknesses in a number of systems and declare victory. The purpose IRISSCERT's Cyber Security Challenge competition is to demonstrate how attackers could gain access to your systems and allow you to learn from the event on how to prevent such attacks from impacting your network.
