With support again from NIXU, a free-to-attend HITB CommSec track with 30 and 60 minutes talks will be held during the 13th and 14th alongside the HITB2017AMS’s CommSec Exhibition Village!

This year we have also partnered with I am the Cavalry to focus 50% of the HITB CommSec track topics on issues that are becoming more and more relevant every day – the security of cars, airplanes, medical devices, critical infrastructure and home automation devices. What does this mean? If you submit a talk to the HITB CommSec track and your talk covers one of the topics above (whether offensive or defensive focused), you will have a higher chance of getting your submission accepted.
