We may be in the middle of the summer but already the calendar for the autumn is starting to fill up. I will be presenting at Source Barcelona and also at BruCON in September. For both of these seminars I will be talking about the lessons learnt from when I set up IRISS-CERT and how those lessons can be applied to those looking to set up their own incident response team. While the topic may be similar the approach to each talk will be different.
Source Barcelona has two tracks, one business and the other technical, and my presentation will be in the business track. So the focus of that talk will be on the business aspects of setting up an incident response team. Xavier Mertens gives a great overview of the different tracks in Source Barcelona over on his /dev/random blog.
BruCON is a more traditional technical security event and my presentation at that seminar will focus more on the technical aspects of setting up an incident response team and the tools, challenges and solutions one can face.
Also in September I will be speaking at the Cloud Computing Summit 2010 which will be held in Dublin. I will be on a panel discussing issues surrounding the Security, Compliance and Regulatory requirements with cloud computing.
Then of course in November there is the IRISS-CERT Annual Cyber Crime conference. Details have yet to be finalised regarding the speaker lineup but already it is looking excellent and it promises to be another exciting event this year.
Hopefully I will get to meet some of you at one of the above conferences.
