IRISS Conference on Cybercrime in Ireland

This promises to be a very interesting event:
IRISS Conference 2009

IRISS will hold its first annual conference on the 19th of November 2009 at the D4 Berkley Court hotel. 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.

Experts on various aspects of cyber crime and cyber security will share their thoughts and experiences with you while a number of panel sessions will provide you with the opportunity to discuss the issues that matter to you most. There will be a number of expert speakers on cyber crime including representatives from;

* The Irish Reporting and Information Security Service
* An Garda Siochana,
* The Data Protection Commissioner's Office
* The European Network and Information Security Agency
* OWASP (The Open Web Application Security Project).

In parallel to the above speaking sessions Ireland's first 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.

The conference will be open to anyone with the responsibility for securing their business information assets. There is no charge for those who wish to attend.
