CampusCon 2012 is the inaugural information security conference hosted by the WIT Hacking Societyand Waterford 2600 members. It will run on Saturday the 21st of January, on the WIT Sports Campus, on the outskirts of Waterford City.
The event will host a number of speakers, covering an array of topics – from web-application security to infosec philosophy. CampusCon will also host a team-based hacking challenge, where everything is to play for and the winners earn bragging rights over their peers. The event will be hotly contested, with teams from various security groups and universities taking part. We will also host a video game challenge. Of course, no conference is complete without a social aspect – so in the tradition of Irish spirit, there will be beers after the event.
Entry to the event is only €5, which covers entry and refreshments. Doors for the event open at 9am, with the first talk at 10am.
One of our members will be giving a talk on Hackerspaces at the event to try and get Ireland’s next hackerspace to be in Waterford.
