Wanna meet a hacker?
When we think of hackers and crackers congregating in one location to network and strut their stuff, Malaysia is hardly the first place you'd expect to find them. But that's precisely what will happen come early October. Local network security portal Hack In The Box (HITB) will be holding its annual HITB Security Conference (HITBSecConf) in Kuala Lumpur from 4-7 October, and Malaysians can expect to meet some of the best minds in the network security arena during the four-day event.
Dhillon Andrews, founder and CEO of HITB, is a good friend of mine. And when he told me that the event would be held again this year, I was naturally very excited and happy for him and his gang of organisers. Of course, there are many other IT security events held in Malaysia each year, but I must say none comes close to what HITBSecConf is capable of. And that is to attract the very prominent and well-respected members of the black hat community from around the world. Naturally, members from the mainstream network security arena will be there as well, but it's really the attendance of the former that makes HITBSecConf an event not to be missed.
