January 2008 FIRST Technical Colloquium

Prague (CZ), 27-31 January, 2008

FIRST Technical Colloquia (TCs) provide a discussion forum for FIRST member teams to share information about vulnerabilities, incidents, tools and all other issues that affect the operation of incident response and security teams.

For you that are new in FIRST or never have attended a TC, the colloquium typically provides one whole day of plenary sessions for informal discussions and presentations on topics of FIRST membership interest, or that are more sensitive in nature and related to the day-to-day work of participants, followed by a day of hands-on classes, where leading security experts sit down with small groups of FIRST team members, and work through technical topics in a highly interactive hands-on fashion.

The FIRST colloquia and hands-on classes are typically hosted by members and since 2005 are being organized in a regional basis the current regions being Latin-America, North-America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. For each region the goal is to organize one TC per year either standing on its own, or jointly with regional CSIRT initiatives.

Thus, this will be the 3rd Joint TF-CSIRT and FIRST Meeting in Europe!

More information about the TF-CSIRT Meeting can be found at Terena's website.
