What is HITBSecConf about?
Our aim has always been to create a community focused, deep-knowledge, highly technical platform for security professionals and enthusiasts to discuss cutting-edge security research. We believe that knowledge should be shared and security risks made known to the public so people can act accordingly. HITBSecConf’s brings together not only the security community but industry professionals and law enforcement officials as well in a relaxed but professional and respectful atmosphere.
HITBSecConf has always been an attack oriented deep-knowledge research event that highlights and showcases cutting edge research from both seasoned and up and coming talent. If you're working on new ways to break out of sandboxes, mess with millions of IOT devices or if you've found a new way to defend these threats, we definitely want to see you on stage at HITBSecConf2016 - Amsterdam!
The opening keynote will be delivered by Morgan Marquis-Boire, one of the influential minds of IT Security and Italian WIRED’s 50 people of 2014. On Day 2, Chris Evans formerly head of google's project zero will deliver the morning keynote and Sophia D'Antoine, who has been working on malicious applications of hardware side channels, will deliver the closing keynote.
