In parallel to the conference, IRISSCERT and the Irish Honeynet Project also hosts Ireland’s premier Cyber Security Challenge to identify Ireland’s top cyber security experts. Teams will 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.
