Call for Speakers for SECURE 2018 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, please consider submitting your proposal. You will find all applicable information below.

    SECURE 2018 will be held on October 23-24 in Warsaw, Poland. This annual conference is 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 showed us that phishing and malware still dominate among cyber threat landscape. Criminals willingly use different variants of ransomware and bankers to achieve their objectives and steal money from Internet users.

How to ensure their security when the number of Internet connected devices is still growing? We will be looking for answers to these and many more questions during SECURE 2018.
