HITBSecConf2013 – Malaysia: THANKS FOR JOINING US!

It’s been IMG_8066 _0015172 IMG_8647_1 IMG_8419_1a week since our 11th annual HITB Security Conference. As we wind down only to start back up for #HITB2014AMS, we want to give a big warm THANK YOU to all our sponsors, speakers, crew, volunteers and attendees who made it over to Kuala Lumpur to join us. We had a feature-packed, 2-day event with some mind blowing talks that have been making headlines across a variety of media outlets. Cyril @pod2g and GG’s presentation on the iMessage man in the middle possibilities even made it to TIME! As usual, all event presentation materials are available at the link below and photos from the training and conference days will be posted on HITBSecPhotos soon.

Presentation Materials:

Unfortunately, there are no HD video recordings of the talks from the conference with the exception of the keynotes which we’ll be releasing on our YouTube channel. If your company is looking for an awesome branding opportunity for next year’s 5th year celebratory conference in Amsterdam, drop us a line! 2014′s 2-day triple track conference will feature an all-women keynote line up and next year also marks our first ever HITB Haxpo – a 3-day technology extravaganza and IT exhibition for hackers, makers, breakers and builders held alongside the main conference proceedings!

Taking place at Amsterdam’s iconic Beurs van Berlage with support and backing from iAmsterdam, HITB Haxpo is going to be unlike anything that’s been done before. Think IT security exhibition meets Makerfaire with a generous touch of HITBSecConf flavor thrown in for good measure. What exactly does that mean? Imagine an area dedicated to  hackerspaces; makers with 3D printers, laser cutters and other fabrication goodies coupled with TOOOL‘s Lock Picking Village, HITB and Mozilla’s HackWEEKDAY developer hackathon, a hackerspaces challenge featuring LEGO Mindstorms EV3, our Capture the Flag ‘live hacking’ competition and topped off by a 3 day IT exhibition featuring Microsoft and Google as the main anchors. The best part? Entrance to the 3-day Haxpo is COMPLETELY FREE!!! Excited? We certainly are!

Haxpo registration and the Call for Papers for our 5th annual conference will open in the middle of November. In the meantime, see below for post conference blog and media coverage from #HITB2013KUL.
