Jeroen Schipper, CISO of the Municipality of The Hague: “Of course we will miss aspects of the live event, like seeing and meeting people in person. On the other hand, an online event brings new challenges and possibilities to the table. Preparations have started and let me tell you: it will be an interesting and exciting event! ”
Pieter Jansen, CEO at Cybersprint: “Organising the event in a digital form is an exciting challenge – and we want to do this right technically. We’ll be using a proper platform for communication amongst the hackers and between participants and organisation, ensuring that everyone stays within the preset limits of the scope and creating an interactive online scoreboard.”
As the international city of Peace & Justice, cybersecurity remains crucial to the municipality of The Hague. With regular internal and external assessments, we’re constantly working on our digital security. The Responsible Disclosure aims to better protect the city’s residents, companies and systems by mitigating vulnerabilities. People who report such vulnerabilities via the Responsible Disclosure policy are allegeable to receive a reward.
Hâck The Hague helps to map and assess the municipality’s digital footprint, a necessary step in strengthening the cyber-resilience. In addition, it contributes to raising awareness among residents, entrepreneurs and employees about digital security. Hackers discovered 102 vulnerabilities during last year’s edition, most of which have since been resolved.
If you find any vulnerabilities in the meantime, you can still report it through the responsible disclosure policy of the municipality of The Hague.
