The benefits of Diversity at Hâck The Hague

by Cybersprint Blog 20 May 2021

A great deal has already been said and written about diversity: its advantages in the workplace, in society and also in the ethical hacking community for that matter. With diversity we mean a variety of differences in gender, culture, age, education, knowledge and experience. At HTH we always encouraging diversity among participating hackers as this will result in a similar variety in vulnerabilities discovered.

We are looking for all unique skills

Chris van ’t Hof dedicated an entire chapter to it in his book ‘Cyber trouble was never this much fun’. Women in cybersecurity are relatively underrepresented, especially since there is a lack of female role models and challenges regarding stereotypes in the industry. What a pity! Women bring equal brainpower and critical opinions to develop innovative solutions within the industry. And how many less experienced hackers refrain from registering for hack events because they think they can never take on the professional hackers they will be competing against? Hâck The Hague provides the perfect opportunity for all who ambition ethical hacking.

Benefits of diversity

More diversity means more creativity, interesting perspectives from different experiences, diverse skill sets- and levels, and knowledge of technological developments. It’s beneficial for the personal development of all participants, it raises the stakes in the competition and results in more innovative ways of thinking and problem-solving.
