There are a couple of conferences this year I’m exceptionally thrilled to be flying out for, one in particular, Hack in the Box Dubai *what? you thought RSA? :)*. I’ve never visited the region though I’ve heard a lot of amazing things. I’ve never attended a HiTB, but many others tell me they rock. For me personally, the best part is I’ve been invited to deliver one of the two conference keynotes. The other is by none other than Bruce Schneier! What an honor. Of course I’m also eager to see some of the top webappsec guys present like Shreeraj Shah and pdp (architect), but also having the opportunity to see talks by experts who don’t make it to the US. I plan to have a amazing time and learning a lot.
I’d like to thank Dhillon Andrew Kannabhiran, Founder/Chief Executive Officer, Hack in The Box for the privilege. And if any of the readers here are attending HiTB, please let me know by emailing and commenting below.
