@Hack – InfoSec on the Edge
At its launch @Hack will be one of the world’s largest infosec shows – bringing together global CISOs from front page companies, elite ethical hackers, more Black Hat trainers that anywhere except Vegas, and over 14,000 visitors.
Carrying the region’s largest CTF, with a festival vibe, and hundreds of things to do on site, the amazing design of the event will set a new standard for the infosec community you won’t want to miss.
Designed in association with the legendary Black Hat team, @Hack will be a truly iconic event with year-round trainings and tuition, a massive event that will take infosec light years away from the norm, and put it on the edge.
As you arrive at the Riyadh Front Exhibition Centre, you’ll see the venue has been seized by huge mechanical monsters and evil robots. A dark atmosphere pervades the halls, with sculptured lighting and sound effects bringing a post apocalyptic atmosphere unlike any other infosec event you’ve been to before.
As you enter the halls, you’re met with a vast infosec exhibition, the largest in the region, with hundreds of vendors ranging from the world famous to niche startup-innovators having set up their stands – showing off their cutting edge services and products.
People in their thousands, spill out of six conference rooms – four of them host the briefings made famous at Black Hat, where headline security vulnerabilities are exploited, new tools demonstrated, and breaking new intelligence shared.
An arsenal sits at the back of the halls, where developers share their open source programs and tools, and also, over three days, the region’s largest CTF feverously competes, with 300 teams battling for the top prize.
Tucked away is the Executive Summit, where many of the region’s top CISOs are given bespoke executive coaching by some of the world’s leading infosec thought leaders.
And a festival atmosphere can be felt in the dozens of social areas, including food trucks, entertainment acts, barbeques and video-game battles.
