Rome 2012 FIRST TC

Rome (IT), 30 January – 01 February, 2012

FIRST Technical Colloquia & Symposia 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&S, 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.

The FIRST colloquia 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.

FIRST/TF-CSIRT Technical Colloquium (TC) 2012. The event will be held from 30 January until 1 February 2012 at the Aula Magna del Rettorato in Rome, Italy. This is a joint event of FIRST and TF-CSIRT hosted by TERENA, GARR-CERT and Roma Tre University.
