Conference on Ransomware, Cryptography and Pseudo-Identity

Mar 29 2017 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Venue: Edinburgh Napier University - Craighlockhart Campus

External Events

Within 2016, The Cyber Academy ran a conference on Cryptography. This year’s event adds the important areas for ransomware and pseudo-ID to the scope of the conference.

Overall, cryptography is one of the most challenging areas within IT, and its usage causes many problems for companies and investigators, but it is also a protector of the rights of privacy. With GDPR coming up in 2018, the usage of cryptography and pseudo-IDs will come to the fore, and companies must understand how to best protect their customer’s data.

A Capture The Flag (CTF) challenge will run from 9am to 1pm, with the best teams being presented an award at the conference. The challenge will include problems of varied difficulty, where both beginners and seasoned information security experts will find something to enjoy
