- More TBC
Every 12 months we take a break from our normal talks (see past talk details are on our wiki on http://corksec.com/) to celebrate our anniversary with a friendly and geeky pub quiz. This year we are a month later than normal ,because remembering months is hard apparently. Expect a night with random security and tech trivia, random facts, lots of fun and prizes! To help dispel your fear of horrible questions - here are 2 from a previous year. We try to make questions guessable, its supposed to be a fun quiz - not an exam!
- In what year was the Stuxnet virus found? 2008, 2010, or 2012
- In the APT (Advanced Persistant Threats) naming convention of Crowdstrike - they use different animals to represent different countries they attributed an attack to e.g. Energetic Bear. Russia is Bear, US is Eagle. What animal is used for China?
- Every year we do this would not be possible without the generous support of our Pub Quiz Sponsors including generous support from TBD
Running since June 2013, every month we have 2 talks focused on Security or Technology - followed by socialising with like minded people – and you can find out exactly what to expect on the About Us section of our Meetup page. Past talk details are on our wiki on http://corksec.com/. All people with any sort of an interest or level of knowledge in Security, Hacking and Emerging Technology are more than welcome to attend and feel free to bring like minded colleagues and friends. CorkSec is a free event (free as in beer, and as in speech).
Our talks come from our community so if you have an idea for a topic (anything for 10-60 minutes) please EMAIL US AT [masked] . Whether you are an experienced presenter, or presenting for your first time - CorkSec is a great venue for it - and we are happy to help you prepare and mentor you.
During COVID pandemic, talks are taking place online via Microsoft Teams. Teams room opens at 19:00 with talks starting around 19:05. We'll be looking to go back to physical meetings when its safe and responsible to do so!
