Simply put CorkSec is a monthly meetup for anyone interested in Information Security in the Munster region (primarily Cork). Regardless of whether you identify yourself as an InfoSec Professional, a Hacker, a Researcher, a Student or just someone with an interest in breaking things to see how they work / stopping people breaking things to see how they work - all are welcome, and please invite your like-minded friends. CorkSec is modeled on the idea of a DefCon Group - In fact its got an official Defcon Group code of DC021353. The ideas behind a Defcon Group embodied a lot of what we want to achieve with CorkSec: - Meetings are open to anyone, regardless of their skill, age, job, gender, etc - Meetings are designed to help you learn new things, meet new people, mentor others in areas you may be strong in, and provide some cohesion within the security/hacker culture and it's members - Each meeting will have 1-2 technical talks given by local members of the Cork security/hacker community with occasional guest speakers In particular we'd like to draw attention to Defcon FAQs answer for "Is this a Hacker Meeting?": No, this is something better. Anything with the "hacker" label on it tends attract only one kind of person. This meeting is designed to attract not only hackers but members of the InfoSec community and people who want to learn more about InfoSec but do not consider themselves hackers. The purpose here is to interact with people who may have different backgrounds but share the same passion for technology. Many security people feel that hackers are nothing but trouble and many hackers feel that security people are clueless. Those generalizations are often made in error and we'd like to bring all techno-dweebs back under a single umbrella. So come on down and enjoy!
