The participation exceeded our expectations, the "Library" was quite full and the discussion was more that I hoped for. We had guests from the hacking community, some state organizations and companies as well as security interested people.
We had a free discussion, supported by the first chapters of the "Seven Layers" presentation covering mainly security standards and the different types of adversaries. First we gave a rough overview over the field of information security, mentioning the most important standards int this field: BS7799, ISO17799, ISO27000 Series, PCIDSS, SAS70 and some more. Then we discussed different flavors of hackers, cybercrime, spam and botnets and industrial espionage and their impact on information security.
