SECURE 2015 – Call for Speakers
08 May 2015 | CERT Polska | #secure, #cfp

Call for Speakers for SECURE 2015 is now open. If you have an interesting topic and would like to share your ideas with a crowd of Polish and international IT security specialists, and/or are looking for a good reason to visit Warsaw, Poland, please consider submitting your proposal. You will find all applicable information below.

SECURE 2015 is a conference dedicated entirely to IT security and addressed to administrators, security team members and practitioners in this field. SECURE’s unique feature is the organisers’ commitment to providing participants with reliable information about everything that is current and meaningful in IT security. A high professional level of the talks is ensured by CERT Polska during the paper selection process. Particular emphasis is on practical solutions, analysis of the current threats, latest trends in countering threats as well as important legal issues. Participants have an opportunity to gain the latest knowledge, improve their qualifications and exchange experience with experts.
Last year cybersecurity gained increased attention in Polish media – starting from losses incurred by the consumer to banking trojans or other fraud, through the online availability saga of the Polish voting commission, to effects of a supposed military conflict. While it may seem that users’ awareness is slowly but gradually increasing and Polish security specialists haven proven their skills in both official (eg. NATO LockedShields) and unofficial ( hacker contests, the room for education in still vast. Even more so when APT attacks which were mostly just a topic for speculation until recently, are increasingly present in Polish enterprises, which not always know how to tackle them. It’s a truism that attacks can never be prevented with absolute confidence. It is therefore essential to learn to detect them early and react efficiently. We wish for SECURE 2015 to be a place for all IT security specialists to increase and share their competence in both defense and reaction.

    SECURE 2015 will be held on October 14-15 at the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw, Poland, focused around three main tracks:

    • technical – practical aspects of implementation and integration of security solutions
