area41 Security Conference
Jun 15 – Jun 16 all-day
area41 Security Conference

In 2014 we conducted the first Area41 conference with more than 350 participants. The conference is a direct successor to the hashdays conference, which we started in 2010.

Since the interest has been growing we had to make a few adjustments. We changed our location running the conference in the heart of Zurich, which makes it very easy for our international guests to join us quickly and without hassle. After we sold out hashdays in 2012, we were looking for a location that can provide the cozy comfort of the Radisson Blu in Lucerne, but provide more space and opportunities for our guests. We will be able to host more guests at a better price and we have great options for accommodation nearby.

Secondly and more prominently, we are retiring the name hashdays. While we are very, very (!) enthusiastic about our new location and looking forward to take things to a new level, we feel that hashdays belonged to Lucerne and to the specific atmosphere we created there. We will keep the hashdays brand alive by continuing to provide all archived materials, such as videos, presentations and notes available, but we decided to name our Zurich conference Area41, a name that represents our close association to DC4131, the local Swiss DEFCON group. It should also make things a little bit easier for all of you who got funny questions about the word ‘hash’ on your expense report…

Africa Cyber Defense Summit 2018
Jul 9 – Jul 10 all-day
Africa Cyber Defense Summit 2018

The African market has been evolving at a gradual pace and has seen huge economic transformations in the recent years. Kenya has been one of the key drivers in the African economy to bring out drastic initiatives. Information and communications technology and the cyber space platforms have become he core pillars and key enablers of Kenya’s Vision 2030 considering its emphasis on transforming Kenya into an industrialized and secure country by laying its foundation on science, technology, and innovation. However, cyber security breaches and attacks are incumbent commonplace threats to organizations and individuals across the globe and are becoming impediments to Kenya’s transformation. It is of paramount importance to urgently and consistently drive national and regional cyber security dialog, and enhance our efforts to secure critical infrastructures and sensitive data. The success of cyber security heavily depends on multiple tangible and intangible factors such as the development of standards, policies and legal frameworks; assessments of risks, governance and compliance; law enforcement and legal interception; sharing and disseminating critical information and alerts; and most importantly create further education and regular awareness amongst the key stakeholders. In order to address the issues of cyber security, and to provide strategic thrusts to protect the critical infrastructure and sensitive information, Naseba, in partnership with the African Cyberspace Network, will organize the Pan-African Cyber Defense Summit (ACDS) in Nairobi, Kenya.
