During the years, we’ve always announced CryptoBG as a summer school in cryptology and cyber resilience. The latter part of this promise always fell somewhat as an afterthought.

That’s why in 2019, the organizing committee of CryptoBG, took a step on expanding on CryptoBG by creating a program, targeted specifically towards those with particular interest in the field of cyber and information security. So instead of CryptoBG in 2019, instead we will get two events, both under the CyberBG name: A 5-day bootcamp / summer school and a 1 day conference. Fear not, however, as CryptoBG will return with double the force in 2020.

Bootcamp: 7-12 July 2019 (Sunday – Friday), “National Institute of Education”, Oriahovitza, Bulgaria
Conference: 13 July 2019 (Saturday), Stara Zagora (exact conference venue is to be confirmed soon)

Topics of the year:

  • Linux & Windows Host Security
  • Cyber Incident Response & Investigation
  • Secure Programming / Secure Coding
  • Network Security

As well as a CTF (Capture The Flag) that will be prepared by CyResLab, wherein participants will compete to prove their newly acquired skills, as well the awards.

Additionally, CyberBG*2019 will briefly cover some upcoming and innovative aspects of cybersecurity, such as:

  • Cloud & Serverless Security
  • System of Systems Security
  • Blockchain
  • Reverse Engineering & Exploitation

The event will conclude with a 1-day conference on Information and Cyber Security Issues on July 13th in Stara Zagora (free upon registration). The conference will gather together experts from the IT sector, security specialists from other industries, as well as entry level InfoSec / Cyber Security practitioners to exchange ideas, expertise and lessons learned in the area.
