HITBSecConf2013 – Amsterdam is OVER!
A big THANK YOU to all our sponsors, speakers, crew, volunteers and attendees for joining us at the 4th annual HITB Security Conference in Amsterdam and for making this year’s event in Europe the most widely covered HITB conference in the media! The #HITB2013AMS hash tag trended not once, but twice! Thanks to some mind-blowing presentations including the much talked about Aircraft Hacking talk by Hugo Teso and appearance by the Evad3rs, HITB speakers were all over the news with articles in almost every single major publication including Engadget, Slashdot, Computer World and Business Week. We were even on BBC and CNN! All presentation materials have been released and photos from the training and conference days will be posted on HITBSecPhotos soon.

HD video recordings of the talks will be uploaded to the HITBSecConf YouTube channel in the middle of May. Follow @HITBSecConf on Twitter for photo and video links. In the meantime, below are some of the post conference media articles and blog postings.
