CommSec Track

Access to the HITB CommSec Track is COMPLETELY FREE and OPEN TO ALL

(Please register first before entering, unless you are also attending the main conference or have pre-registered) 

With support again from NIXU, a free-to-attend HITB CommSec track with 30 and 60 minutes talks will be held during the 12th and 13th alongside the HITB2018AMS’s CommSec Exhibition Village!

Please note there are limited seats in the CommSec Track. For safety and security reasons, we will close access once the room reaches capacity.

This year we have also partnered with I am the Cav

alry to focus 50% of the HITB CommSec track topics on issues that are becoming more and more relevant every day – the security of cars, airplanes, medical devices, critical infrastructure and home automation devices.

I am the Cavalry is a volunteer initiative focused around creating visibility and improving the security of exactly the above mentioned domains. Alongside the CommSec track, there will also be a meetup for I am the Cavalry (and OWASP members) on the evening of Day 1 where you will have the chance to meet and network with fellow speakers and delegates.
