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
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.
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.
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!
An exclusive place to be
Auditorio Adán Martín Menis
Avenue la Constitución 1
38003 Santa Cruz de Tenerife
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 event aims to foster existing and build new beneficial relationships for development,
cooperation, and coordination. A showcase of technology providers completes the program.
A program committee will support the composition and selection of the content and presenters in
early autumn 2023. The entire program agenda will be available by mid-November 2023.
FIRST aspires to bring together incident response and security teams from every country
across the world to ensure a safe internet for all since 1990. It consists of cyber
emergency response and security teams from over 670 corporations, government bodies,
universities, and other institutions across 100 countries in the Americas, Asia, Europe,
Africa, and Oceania.
TF-CSIRT is a European based collaboration of over 500 teams, many of them also FIRST
members, that promotes collaboration and coordination between security teams managing
and responding to security incidents in Europe and neighbouring regions, whilst liaising
with FIRST at the global level, and with akin organisations in other regions.
The Open CSIRT Foundation (OCF) is an independent not-for-profit organisation with a
mission – improving cyber hygiene & resilience worldwide. Since 2022, OCF is also the
home of TF-CSIRT and its Trusted Introducer service maintaining the registry of trusted
and vetted teams.
Well-attended and well-received, past conferences on this topic have attracted over a
thousand delegates from over 85 countries. The communities represented by FIRST and
TF-CSIRT together are the most influential international assemblies of incident management
and cyber security professionals.
Sponsorship Opportunities are limited and are on a first come, first served basis.
