How many years has it been going?
It is inaugural
What was the inspiration to start it?
Ireland is lacking a purely CIO/CISO focused event to discuss the latest cybersecurity trends across sectors and for peers to connect and network.
What exciting things can people look forward to for the 2017 version and who will be speaking?
Kurt Pipal from FBI will speak, Denis Kennelly VP Development & Technology IBM, Rik Ferguson VP Threat Research Trend Micro, Tom Kellermann and Hank Thomas from America representing Strategic Cyber Ventures (They will also be looking at startups in Ireland for possible investment), Alan Bambury from Kerry Group, Enda Kyne from FBD Insurance, Richard Harpur from Fexco, Gary Delaney, who heads up AIB’s CyberSecurity Transformation (please see full list here www.zerodaycon.com)
There will also be an exciting VR SOC experience at the IBM Stand where people can try out how a SOC works, how an attack can escalate and how you can stop it.
