New Security Event @Hack to Take Place in Saudi Arabia

The Saudi Federation of Cybersecurity, Programming, and Drones (SAFCSP) and Informa Tech will launch a multi-day event in Riyadh this November.

The first @Hack cybersecurity event will take place in November in Saudi Arabia.

This event, to take place in Riyadh November 28-30, is a cooperative effort between the Saudi Federation of Cybersecurity, Programming, and Drones (SAFCSP) and Informa Tech.

Event organizers say @Hack is part of a larger effort to support Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030, as well as the SAFCSP's goals of making one in every 100 Saudi citizens a programmer and elevating Saudi Arabia's status in the tech industry.

The event will include hands-on technical courses focused on topics including broader offensive security, techniques in penetration testing, infrastructure hacking, and mobile application security.

A training event with 50 Black Hat-approved instructors will take place in the days preceding the event from November 23-27. This series will cover 20 courses with tutorials for participants of all levels. 

"Cybersecurity is one of the fastest growing markets in Saudi Arabia and @Hack will create a social movement unleashing our boundless potential and ambitions, helping to inspire a technological golden era," says SAFCSP Chairman, Faisal Al Khamisi.
