To facilitate casual and sociable communications among ISFS members, ISFS arranges chit-chat gatherings (on an ad-hoc basis) discussing various information security or computer forensics related issues. One or two members will be hosting in each gathering and from time to time we will invite guests and experts to share their views with us.

Those interested in helping or setting up the honeynet environment, malware environment are invited to this chit-chat session.
