CESNET extends an invitation to a networks and services security seminar

Prague, 16 January 2015. CESNET will hold a seminar (in Czech language) on the security of networks and services on Wednesday, 11 February. The all-day event will be held in the Balling Hall at the National Library of Technology in Prague 6 (Technická 6); it is planned to begin at 9.30 am. Admission is free, subject to registration on the seminar’s website. A detailed programme is available on the site, too.

The meeting is intended for everyone who is responsible for the operation and security of computer networks or services, namely administrators, supervisors and members of security teams. The seminar will focus on important areas of security – network traffic monitoring, the processing of collected data (logs) and tools for analysis, practical tips and guidelines for network security, and the operation of one of the crucial services of the Internet today, DNS.

In their presentations, CESNET experts will draw on their experience gathered from the operation and monitoring of the CESNET2 network. They will also describe the most interesting security incidents of 2014 such as the HeartBleed vulnerability or blackmailing phishing campaigns. The seminar will end with a legal section devoted to new Czech legislation related to IT. There will also be sufficient time for participants’ questions and a final discussion.
