New! Team participation up to 4 people

by Cybersprint Blog 20 May 2021

200 hackers, professional and students, a much bigger scope than previous years, an interactive side-program during the event, €€-prices and awards: that’s the digital edition of Hâck the Hague ‘21 in a nutshell!

Have you been hesitating to register for the online edition of HTH? Then make the most of this opportunity and register yourself or your team for the online 2021 event! Attending HTH with a team adds an entirely different dimension to the event and requires skills like coordination and communication in order to make the most of the available knowledge and experience. Individuals in a team have a dynamic way of looking at things and dealing with situations. Together you may discover totally different vulnerabilities than on your own.Register for HTH21
Below a couple of tips if you are planning on participating with a team.

Putting a team together

If you participate with a team, make the most of the individual skills of your team members. Ideally, you need a ‘’generalist’’ who keeps an overview of the entire playing field and other team members who are specialist in e.g. specific tools or attacks, who can dive into the details of promising leads or other areas. Remember, every individual has his/her own way of looking at things and will find vulnerabilities that others overlook. Also, don’t forget to use each other as sparring partners during the event: together you know more than on your own!

Team captain

The biggest challenge a team captain could face is making sure that the skills and focus of the team members are put to the tasks where they add most value. You need to keep your eye on your team members and their efforts whilst focusing on your own job - so a bit of multitasking might come in handy too. As team captain you are responsible for a timely submission of the proof of concept of your team, you are required to be (digitally) present at the award ceremony with your camera on and you are the spokesperson for the entire team before, during and after the event.

A team captain should be appointed before registration, as he or she should register every person on the team and will act as the main point of contact for everything related to the event.


As an individual you might prepare for HTH in the last minute, but as a team it’s worthwhile to start earlier. Discuss how you are going about the event, who will be responsible for what, and how you are planning to keep track of each other’s activities. Documenting what individual team members are doing in one single document is not only to prevent people working on the same things, but will also allow you to give individuals the credit they deserve. Tools like e.g. Burp suite, help to automatically create an overview of all websites that you have visited.

Sounds interesting? We are looking forward to receiving your registration!
