          I enjoyed speaking and sharing my experience of defending American enterprise networks from cyber security attacks at HackIT-2016. I was very impressed with the number and quality of the attendees for this conference as well as the high level of professionalism (more…)

        • Andrew Auernheimer

          This was the best experience I ever had speaking at any event. Everyone I met at HackIT is bright and enthusiastic and a pleasure to be around. This is the only hacker event I will keep coming back at for years in the future.

          It has been both a honour and privilege to address our community gathered at HackIT. I have always respected and valued highly my fellows in Ukraine and making it to Kharkiv provided me with the opportunity to meet with, and listen to, them. (more…)

          A detailed analysis of the most high-profile cyber attacks of the year, the search for vulnerabilities of software by white hackers and Internet traps for blacks, communication with representatives of cyberpolice is not a complete list of the impressive moments of the leading conference  (more…)


          HackIT - the most large-scale conference in Ukraine in 2016, which specifically focuses on information security issues(more…)


          This year, the organizers especially managed to make a show from technical reports. Forum in the right style: not boring. Mass of entertainment from radio-controlled tanks to alkocameras  (more…)


          Reading books allows to learn how fundamental things work, results of the researches are presented in articles and ideas appear on conferences. There were a lot of interesting ideas and cool speakers on the HackIT  (more…)

        • Andrew Dodson

          As a dissenting voice to present western energy policy, HackIt very much felt like a type of homecoming. The honest intelligence displayed by the hosts, other keynote speakers, and attendees is absolutely refreshing to one used to  hearing only trite propaganda (more…)
