AfricaHackOn, which is housed under its parent umbrella, Euclid Consultancy, is set to hold its third conference this year from the July 28 to 29, 2016 at Michael Joseph Center, Safaricom House, Westlands.
AfricaHackon, to be held under the theme “Convergence in Security”, seeks to address these challenges by raising awareness on matters affecting cyber security and also grooming upcoming talent into the job market. What began as a casual meet up for information security professionals led to formation of AfricaHackon, a venture that has seen its emergence as a formidable force in the profession.
The event comes at a time when Cyber Security has risen to prominence as a recurrent theme in the ICT industry over the last 10 years. The industry has also witnessed a deluge of events, both local and international, which emphasize the need to continuously address the challenges posed by technology proliferation.
In its first conference, AfricaHackon began by popularizing the need to have a different approach towards cyber security which included doing away with “talk only” seminars. This year’s conference is bringing corporate players into the party to showcase why they should consider local talent that has been successfully bred since 2013. It intends to provide a platform for AfricaHackon inductees to showcase their skills and talents to the public. The different mind-bending presentations and demonstrations promise to leave attendees yearning for more.
Having partnered with AfricaHackon once again this year, BAKE will be conducting a Digital skills training during the conference to impart digital skills for internet users.The training will run from 2.00pm – 3.50pm on Friday 29, July. Please use this link to purchase your ticket to the conference.
