HITBSecConf2010 Amsterdam opens in July
The organizers of the Hack In The Box security conferences in Malaysia are planning their first European show for Amsterdam next July.
Hack In The Box (HITB) held its first security conference, or hacker convention, in Kuala Lumpur in 2003, one of the first major shows of its kind in Asia. HITB organizers added a show in the Middle East in Dubai, United Arab Emirates in 2007. The two shows run yearly and draw high profile security industry people every year.
Next year, HITB will host its first show in Amsterdam from July 5 to 8, according to Dhillon Andrew Kannabhiran, the head of HITB. The Amsterdam show, HITBSecConf2010 - Amsterdam, will follow a similar schedule to the other HITB exhibitions. There will be two days of training sessions and two days of the conference, complete with Web hacking competitions.
Hacking competitions feature in every HITB show and the winners used to receive cash awards from sponsors. But at HITB Malaysia this year, there was no prize money on offer due to lack of sponsorship of the event yet enough teams registered to fill the competition ticket.
