WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE 2018 HACKATHON

HANDS-ON LEARNING

This event is tailored for information security professionals and code developers looking to test their skills and identify knowledge gaps. It is a hands-on cyber security challenge designed to offer participants practical real-world learning to develop skills.

REAL WORLD SCENARIOS

The challenges compromise real websites with simulated traffic, technologies and vulnerabilities that represent actual application behaviours. Unmatched realism delivers long-term memory benefits that “learning by doing” provides to teams that protect your enterprise.

FUN, FOOD & FRIENDS

Going beyond the standard approach, this hands-on training event is as challenging as it is creative and fun. Network with colleagues and receive recognition amongst peers. This event is a great team building opportunity not to mention the prizes and bragging rights for the winners.

FEEDBACK FROM OUR PREVIOUS HACKATHONS

Great work! Loved it!

I had a great time doing the hackathon, thanks very much for putting on the event! 🙂

It was a blast. I had a great time and if I can attend again I’ll play again with more experience.

Challenges were great with a variety of difficulty and explored common OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities. Great way for hands-on learning
