  • At meetings: you get to know each other and exchange knowledge in an accessible and familiar way.
  • With workshops: for example, about new cyber security techniques or tools.
  • At the annual two-day cyber security conference. These are organised jointly by SCIRT, the SCIPR community and SURFcert.
