FIRST is looking for speakers that would like to present at the Amsterdam 2019 Technical Colloquium (TC) April 1 - April 3.
The idea behind the TC is to encourage security teams and talented researchers to share their technical work in a friendly environment. We strongly encourage any individual who has not spoken at a conference before to submit a proposal. While we give special consideration to local talent, submissions are welcome from anyone, anywhere (although travel expenses are not covered by FIRST).
We are most interested in new presentations and presenters. We can also mentor or help new presenters review their materials in preparation for submission. Any novel ideas, techniques, case studies, or research related to incident and threat response are welcome. Some suggested topics are as follows:
Threat actor groups & techniques
Creative incident response techniques
Indicators of compromise and how to detect/mitigate
Data analytics for security
Criminal underground / State-backed actors
Denial-of-service attacks and countermeasures
Human-computer interaction, security, and privacy
Intrusion and anomaly detection and prevention
Monetization of cybercrime
Open Source tools
How organizations protect themselves against attacks

We already have two great free workshops planned for Monday. The first is a blue-team capture the flag competition called Boss of the SOC (BOTS). BOTS is a hands-on, self-paced, blue-team exercise which uses Splunk to answer a variety of questions about security incidents that have occurred in a realistic but fictitious enterprise environment. The second workshop is a Cisco training that walks you through the whole process of incident response - breach detection, containment, and mitigation.
FIRST does not allow presentations with the aim of gaining the audience's interest in any commercial application, solution or product. In other words,
NO MARKETING PRESENTATIONS.
Please only submit a talk if you are actually able to attend the TC in Amsterdam.
This is a free conference and we cannot sponsor travel or other honorarium support.
Our goal is to have the program on the event website by end of February 2019, to that end please have all submission completed by February 15th.
The event will be held at the Cisco Campus, located at:
Haarlerbergpark, Haarlerbergweg 13-19
1101 CH Amsterdam
