Running for nearly 5 years, 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 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.
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.

Doors open at 19:00 with talks starting at 19:15.

As a result defending against attackers has never been easier, and the worldwide security job market is expected to dry up completely by 2020.

"Amazing. Every word of what you just said ... was wrong" - Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight, 34 ABY

In this talk I'll catalog several different attack scenarios based on Trend Micro's research projects. All of these will fit outside the normal ones you are likely setup pretty well to defend against - and show why there will always be novel ways for attackers to defeat defences because ... Humans.
