IRISSCERT Annual Conference 2012
Thursday, 22 November 2012 from 09:00 to 17:00 (GMT)
IRISSCERT holds an annual conference themed on cyber crime in November. This is an all day conference which focuses on providing attendees with an overview of the current cyber threats facing businesses in Ireland 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 full list of speakers is available at
The conference will be open to anyone with the 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 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.
We have also negotiated a special delegate rate for those wishing to stay in the conference hotel of €79 per room for bed and breakfast. If you wish to avail of this send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get the discount code.
In parallel to the conference, IRISSCERT also hosts Ireland's premier Cyber Security Challenge to identify Ireland's top cyber security experts. Teams will 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.
