This year’s Hack In The Box conference is being held at the De Beurs van Berlage, which is an impressive venue located in central Amsterdam. The organization, the presentations and, best of all, the atmosphere are – as usual – fantastic.
For the first time, the Haxpo floor is open and free to outside visitors, who took the opportunity to peek into the infosec world and to bring their kids with them.
This year’s edition is unusual for another reason: all the keynote speakers are women working in information security – CEOs, CSOs, and CISOs. The honour of teeing off the conference belonged to Katie Moussouris, former Senior Security Strategist Lead at Microsoft Security Response Center and, as of yesterday, the new Chief Policy Officer of HackerOne, who talked about hacking for the greater good.
