HITB security conference goes to Bahrain

The Star (Malaysia)

Building on the successes of past security conferences, the organiser of the annual Hack In The Box Security Conference (HITBSecConf), has decided to stage another conference outside of Malaysia.

According to Hack In The Box Sdn Bhd, the conference will be held in Manama, Bahrain, from April 10-13 and will feature more than 18 of the world’s renowned hackers and network security researchers. Other experts hailing from Europe, Britain, United States, Canada, Australia and Asia Pacific will also be on hand to present their latest research.

“We’ve had extremely good response to our past conferences in Malaysia and we hope that expanding the HITBSecConf2005 in the Middle East will promote the sharing and dessemination of deep-knowledge technical information,” said Dhillon Andrew Kannabhiran, founder and chief executive of Hack In The Box.

The company first started organising its HITBSecConf four years ago. In recent years, it has managed to attract some of the world’s best-known hackers such as Theo De Raadt and John T. Draper as well as Polish celebrity hackers – The Last Stage of Delirium (LSD) Research Group – who gained fame for “breaking the Windows operating system” in 2003.
