Cyber Security Challenge

In parallel to the conference, IRISSCERT also hosts Ireland's premier IRISSCON Cyber Security Challenge. The challenge allows Ireland's top cyber security experts to 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.

Martijn Grooten, Editor, Virus Bulletin

 

Topic: All your Bayes are belong to us: lessons learned from fighting spam

 

Abstract: If we take a bulk message sent on ARPANET to be its first instance, spam turned 40 this spring. The fight against it is just about as old. In this talk I will discuss the history of spam and anti-spam. However, the goal is not to just teach the audience a history lesson, but to show the lessons that can be learned from this fight that is often considered a rare success story in information security. Perhaps surprisingly, the reason behind this success may be a subtle approach that has aimed to mitigate the program rather than to radically eradicate it.

 

Bio: Martijn Grooten is a lapsed mathematician who by pure chance ended up working in security a dozen years ago. He hasn't regretted it a single day since. Currently the Editor of Virus Bulletin, he has spent years running tests on various kinds of security software and organises the annual Virus Bulletin conference. His interest in security is broad and the list of security topics he doesn't know enough about keeps growing. He has a weak spot for cryptography.
