Welcome to the official homepage of HITBSecConf2009 - Dubai. The main aim of the HITBSecConf conference series is to create a truly technical and deep knowledge event in order to allow you to learn first hand on the security threats you face in todays super connected world. The HITBSecConf platform is used to enable the dissemination, discussion and sharing of critical network security information.

Presented by respected members of both the mainstream network security arena as well as the underground or black hat community, our events routinely highlight new and ground-breaking attack and defense methods that have not been seen or discussed in public before. HITBSecConf2009 - Dubai will be our 3rd conference in the UAE and is expected to attract over 200 delegates from the GCC, Europe, North America and the Asia Pacific region. Come and learn from some of the leading experts in the network security arena.

HITBSecConf2009 - Dubai will also see our highly popular attack-only Capture The Flag competition being organized once again. This years contest will also include an additional binary reversing challenge as well! We believe HITBSecConf is an ideal platform for leading network security vendors to not only meet with some of the leading network security specialists but to also showcase their own technology and solutions with the public as well.

Baniyas/Creek Road,
Dubai, UAE
