On Thursday, 19 November at 15.00, the winner of CyberOlympics, Jaanus Kääp, will give a free public lecture at the IT College. The Olympic champion will share what he learned at world famous security conferences and talks about finding security errors and developing the necessary skills.
One can become very good at defending computer systems only if one is familiar with the behavioural patterns of potential attackers. In the spring of 2015 CyberOlympics were held to give students an opportunity to put their skills to the test and acquire new knowledge. During the 8-hour competition within the cyber defence training field of the Estonian Defence Forces, the participants’ technical knowledge and practical skills of protecting computer systems were put to the test. The first CyberOlympics were organised by the Information Technology Foundation for Education, the Ministry of Defence, the Estonian Information Technology College, and Vequrity Ltd and it was won by Jaanus Kääp, a second-year student of IT systems development at the Estonian Information Technology College and data security expert at Clarified Security.
The grand prix was the opportunity to participate at the prestigious "Black Hat Europe 2015" information security conference in Amsterdam. At the public lecture, the Olympic champion Jaanus will share the more interesting tips and tricks for finding security errors that were presented at the Black Hat Europe and Defcon security conferences and talk about the application of skills to finding security errors during the CyberOlympics and elsewhere. The lecture will be in English.
2015 was the first year when it was possible to obtain an extra point for attaining a place I-III at the cyber defence contest CyberOlympics when applying to study in IT College.
The public lecture will take place in the IT College building in Mustamäe (Raja 4C, Tallinn, lecture hall 316). Join the public lecture on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/1645832179012356/.
