44CON 2016 CryptoContest

As part of SecureWorks’ longstanding support of the InfoSec community around the world, we are excited to tell you about our latest plans for the next great “hacker” conference, EMEA Edition

We kicked things off this year by sponsoring the coffee/tea bar at BSides London. Now, on September 14-16, SecureWorks Security & Risk Consulting (SRC) is proud to be a gold sponsor of 44CON in London, one of Europe's premier hacker conferences. Between the fantastic talks this year, be sure to visit the SecureWorks booth – Stand 2. Our team is setting up a great VR game that everyone can play; we have a fun and challenging crypto contest; and SecureWorks SRC team members will be on-hand to answer questions.

The crypto contest offers a range of challenges and provides participants the chance to win some great prizes.
