Hacktivity, the largest independent IT Security Festival in Central and Eastern Europe will be held for the 10th time on October 11-12. 1,200 hackers from all over the world, presentations in two simultaneous sections, interactive workshops in small groups, new section for product demos, hardware hacking, lockpicking, live shows, 24-hour hacking competition, a real festival mood and jubilee party in the evening!
This is how you can describe the 10th Hacktivity, the two-day festival which brings together the official and alternative representatives of the IT security industry with people interested in the field, in a casual, informative and sometimes in-depth technical way. Traditionally, Hacktivity is characterized by competitions, a multitude of programmes and a real festival mood.
This year’s keynote speaker is a real IT security „star”: Charlie Miller, Twitter’s Senior Security Engineer. His Twitter profile says: ’I'm that Apple 0day guy’. Charlie worked for NSA for five years, hacked Macbook Air and iPhone among others, and made a fool of the developers of Safari and the Safari mobile app.
There’ll be a new round of HACK 24, the 24-hour hacking competition for valuable prizes, a hardware workshop and lockpicking with plenty of new features, numerous games and a brilliant jubilee party in the evening where we’ll reminiscence about the beginning.
At the conference, certified (CISA, CISM, CISSP) specialists can collect CPE points necessary for their licence. The organizers expect 1,200-1,500 participants this year.
