APNIC participated in Cyber Security Week 2015 in Colombo, Sri Lanka, from 2 to 6 November 2015.
Co-organized by Sri Lanka CERT|CC and the Information and Communication Technology Agency (ICTA), Cyber Security Week 2015 attracted more than 250 attendees representing ISPs, LEAs, and other CERTs/CSIRTs from around the region.
Held for the eighth time, the event featured a hacking challenge, four workshops and a cyber security quiz, all with the aim of sharing information, understanding emerging technologies and security issues, and forging security alliances. APNIC supported the event as a sponsor.
- Adli Wahid presented “Get involved and contribute” on the challenges new cybersecurity professionals face in the industry, and how they can collaborate and be more effective.
- Adli helped conduct two technical workshops: “Internet abuse handling”, on best current practices in handling Internet number resource abuse, and “Network Security in-depth”, on the key concepts, protocols, and policies involved in establishing and maintaining security for a network.
- He also conducted the “Run your own Honeypots” workshop, highlighting the value of using honeypots for gaining security threat awareness. Participants learned about different types of honeypots, deployment issues, and how to analyse data captured by the honeypots.
