IRISSCERT Cyber Crime Conference

The IRISSCERT Cyber Crime Conference will be held this year on Thursday the 19th of November 2015 in the D4Berkley Court Hotel, in Ballsbridge Dublin.  This is an all day conference which focuses on providing attendees with an overview of the current cyber threats facing businesses in Ireland and throughout the world and what they can do to help deal with those threats.

Experts on various aspects of cyber crime and cyber security share their thoughts and experiences with attendees, while a number of panel sessions will provide the opportunity to discuss the issues that matter most.

The conference is open to anyone with responsibility for securing their business information assets. There is a nominal fee of €25 per person attending to cover the costs of catering and other organisational expenses

The IRISSCERT Annual Conference is an opportunity to not only increase your knowledge but also to meet and network with your peers in a relaxed environment.

In parallel to the conference, IRISS also hosts Ireland's premier Cyber Security Challenge to identify Ireland's top cyber security experts who compete against each other in a controlled environment to see who will be the first to exploit weaknesses in a number of systems and declare victory. The purpose of the 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.

Registration will open soon.
