19 September, ethical hackers of HSD’s premium partner Deloitte won for the third time in a row the Global CyberLympics Security Challenge. This international hacking contest took place at the Hacker Halted conference in Atlanta (USA). KPN’s ethical hackers reached the third place in this competition.
The Global CyberLympics is an initiative of the International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (EC-Council) and is supported by the International Multilateral Partnership Against Cyber Threats (IMPACT). The aim of the CyberLympics is to improve the level of cyber security within countries and to increase cooperation between countries. The CyberLympics consists of a series of 'ethical hacking’ games comprised of both offensive, defensive security challenges and IT Forensics.
Partners in The Hague Security Delta work together to develop and share knowledge and to ensure (future) availability of suitable staff in cyber security. Early 2014, they will open a Cyber Incident Experience Lab and a Cyber Security Academy in The Hague.
