Mobile Malware awareness campaign in Romania
Date: 24 Oct 2016

Raising awareness of individuals about malware targeting mobile devices

Whether it is used in direct methods of attack or as an enabler for downstream cybercrime, malware remains one of the key threat areas within cybercrime. The malware identified as the current threats across the EU by EU law enforcement can be loosely divided into three categories based on their primary functionality – ransomware, Remote Access Tools (RATs) and info stealers.
Industry reporting indicates that the volume of mobile malware continues to grow. The majority of mobile malware is typically less malicious than its desktop counterpart. Although there is a growing volume of banking malware and trojanised financial apps on mobile devices, the majority of mobile malware is still from premium service abusers.
As more consumers move to mobile devices for their financial services (banking, mobile payments, etc.) the effectiveness and impact of mobile malware will increase. It can therefore be expected to begin to feature more prominently on law enforcement’s radar.
EUROPOL, CERT-RO, Romanian Police & DIICOT gathered their efforts and expertise in mobile malware in order to deliver a successful anti-mobile-malware campaign in Romania

Date: 03 Nov 2016

CYBERTHREATS & CYBERSECURITY DAY will focus on the cyber security trends and technologies, technical solutions and services to promptly answer the growing cyber security threats.

The conference offers participants the opportunity to interact with professionals in the field of cybersecurity and to discuss strategies or approaches to be taken in the current context of securing cyber infrastructure data. Event sessions are supported by Romanian and international experts, including demonstrations of the latest technologies.

The most important conference on information security topics from Central and Eastern Europe.

This edition brings under the same roof entrepreneurs, cyber security specialists, developers, but also individuals who want to test their hacking capabilities on the devices provided by the organizers.
Because it's the most important conference on Hacking & Information Security in Central Eastern Europe, bringing hands-on talks about the latest research and practices from the INFOSEC field.
For this new edition, DefCamp brings internationally recognised industry leaders ready to share knowledge and present latest threats from the market.
Five years ago there were only 80 attendees in Bran, now more than 1,000 professionals are expected to join. We encourage both students and specialists from the cyber security area, along with people passionate about hacking to come and be ready to put their skills to the test in at least one of the contests that the team has prepared for them. Hacking Village is the special place to be for all the participants who want to test their skills in different competitions and challenges because these competitions are essential as any topic related to cyber security must have in mind two main subjects: the solution and the part where you identify the problem.
Because of the high interest for IoT Village we decided to increase the number of competitions and encourage other companies to bring their own contest. This is the chance to bring innovation on the table through new ways of highlighting the importance of rising awareness on the cyber security topic.
The Startup Corner is also one of the new kids on the block as it’s a new area to be developed this year. The idea behind is to encourage security startups to show themselves and present their solutions during the conference, they benefit from a free access to the conference and free booth at Hacking Village area.
Moreover, Masterclass section is specially designed to bring companies and security experts closer in order to share knowledge on sensitive topics.
Last, we have a dedicated section for companies who are planning to recruit local talent for the cyber security field and an exclusive corner to showcase products & technologies.
If DefCamp looks appealing for your company, learn more about what’s in for you or if you are looking for a seat for the 7th edition, now it’s the perfect time of the year to register for DefCamp 2016.
