Incident Busters. A 2017 retrospective

2017 was a very difficult and interesting year for us at CERT-RO, with big and very mediatized cyber outbreaks that got misunderstood by the public. This here is a retrospective of this year with a couple of lessons learned and a couple of funny stories from the front-lines, proving that humans will still be humans even if they mostly interact with machines. And wait, there’s more. We definitely need you. Yes, you the public.
This talk is co-presented with Alexandru Stoian, Cyber security specialist @ CERT-RO
