Open Cyber Security Conference

26.02. – 01.03.2024
Auditorio de Tenerife "Adán Martín"

Back to the future
Moving forward with lessons learned from 30 years of working together!

The OCSC is a unique event to celebrate 30 years of international collaboration of European cyber security and incident management teams within a truly global community of trusted practitioners. But instead of looking back, the conference will focus on the future of security incident management and how to address the challenges ahead.

Organized by the OpenCSIRT Foundation (OCF) in close collaboration with TF-CSIRT and FIRST.

A unique event to celebrate

Our goals

People are passionate and have ideals as well as the will to respond to challenges that put our societies at risk. Any single person working alone might not have a great effect. But whenever you bring together such people, great ideas come to the surface and create the momentum for change. In our cyber security community, we have many inspired individuals like that, and they love to take action – but it‘s the “bringing together”, the organization that often needs a little push. It is this ingredient that OCF aims to provide. The ingredient needed to help people with ideas actually achieve their goals.

The conference

OCF promotes European and global coordination and cooperation between cyber security and incident management teams. The OCSC conference provides a forum for the exchange of goals, ideas, and information on how to improve cyber hygiene and resilience on a global scale.

Join us

We look forward to having you join us: As a contributor, as a sponsor, as a source of ideas, experience, curiosity, critic, ... and especially as a person willing to learn more and accept those challenges together with those working in the field!

The eye-catching Auditorio de Tenerife, located at the harbor of Santa Cruz in Tenerife reminds visitors of a massive, white ship. It was built in 1994 by the Valencian architect, Santiago Calatrava Valls. Its external walls are decorated with the typical Canarian Trencadís – which are small pieces of pottery that reflect the sunlight and give the building a sparkly appearance. You probably know this style of architecture from Park Güel, which was created by Antonio Gaudi in Barcelona.

The structure of the opera house is quite spectacular, with its different platforms, convoluted walls, and 50m high wave-construction on the ceiling. This all overlaps with a curvy roof that hovers above the dome of the Sala principal o Sinfónica, the Great Hall of Auditorio de Tenerife. This curved shape has resulted in the building being one of the most popular and iconic destinations on the entire island.

In addition to this curved feature, flights of stairs break up the mighty white external walls and, at the top, you will experience an amazing view of the sea in front of the Auditorio, with the Anaga-Mountains in the background.

The Agenda

The event aims to foster existing and build new beneficial relationships for development, cooperation, and coordination. A showcase of technology providers completes the program.

Our program committee supports the composition and selection of the content and presenters since late summer 2023.


We are very happy to announce that Chema Alonso, Mandy Andress, Jeff J. Carpenter, Mikko Hypponen, and Rebecca Slayton (in alphabetical order by last name) have agreed to speak at the conference!
