IRISS Conference 2010
IRISS will hold its annual conference on
the 18th of November 2010 in the
D4 Berkley Court Hotel in Ballsbridge,
Dublin 4. This all day conference will focus on providing you with an overview of
the current cyber threats facing businesses in Ireland and what you can do to
help deal with those threats.
The IRISS Annual Conference is an opportunity
to not only increase your knowledge but also to meet and network with your peers
in a relaxed environment. There is no charge to attend our conference,
however we would appreciate a donation to help cover our costs. You can
make a donation via PayPal.
In parallel to the above speaking sessions
Ireland's premier Cyber Security Challenge, HackEire,
will be held to identify
Ireland's top cyber security experts. HackEire
will see 10 teams, up to a
maximum of four people per team, compete against each other in a controlled
environment to see which team will be the first to exploit weaknesses in a
number of systems and declare victory. The purpose of the
HackEire 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.
