Organized by the OpenCSIRT Foundation (OCF) in close collaboration with TF-CSIRT and FIRST
The Open Cyber Security Conference (OCSC) is a unique event to celebrate 30 years of international collaboration of European cyber security and incident management teams within a truly global community of trusted practitioners.
But instead of looking back, the conference will focus on the future of security incident management and how to address the challenges ahead.
OCF, FIRST and TF-CSIRT all promote European and global coordination and cooperation between cyber security and incident management teams. The OCSC provides a forum for the exchange of goals, ideas, and information on how to improve cyber hygiene and resilience on a global scale.
People are passionate and have ideals as well as the will to respond to challenges that put our societies at risk. Any single person working alone might not have a great effect. But whenever you bring together such people, great ideas come to the surface and create the momentum for change. In our cyber security community, we have many inspired individuals like that, and they love to take action – but it‘s the “bringing together”, the organization that often needs a little push. It is this ingredient that the OCSC aims to provide. The ingredient needed to help people with ideas actually achieve their goals.
We look forward to having you join us: As a contributor, as a sponsor, as a source of ideas, experience, curiosity, critic, ... and especially as a person willing to learn more and accept those challenges together with those working in the field!

The events of the co-organizers are known for practical value for all persons engaged in cyber security, either in incident management, operations, product security, threat intelligence, information sharing or other required functions and services. Leading practitioners, researchers as well as scientist and managers will provide insights and present lessons learned. All in all providing great opportunities to learn or to start active collaborations and new projects.
We also invite original contributions as research papers, tutorials/workshops, panels, demonstrations, or posters!
What we are looking for are leading-edge experiences, deep research, challenging discoveries, working solutions, and established best practices applicable for single teams, communities and on global scale. We also invite fresh ideas and challenges presented to the global community for further discussion and consideration. What we look for are perspectives that should have an impact for the work of CSIRTs, ISACs, PSIRTs, SOCs, or other security teams.
