Hâck The Hague postponed to 2021

by Cybersprint News 9 Jun 2020

Hâck The Hague has been postponed to 2021. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to organise the hacking contest in its unique ‘Hâck The Hague’-way in 2020 due to the current measures against the spread of the coronavirus. Instead, the event will be held on Monday 27 September 2021, again as a co-organised competition by the municipality of The Hague and cybersecurity company Cybersprint.

Alderman ICT Saskia Bruines challenges ethical hackers to hack the municipality of The Hague in the city hall for the 2021 edition of Hâck The Hague. There will be room for over 100 ethical hackers. To make this edition even more challenging, more of the municipality’s suppliers and (international) organisations from the region will put their infrastructure to the test. Similar to last year, cash prizes will be awarded for the best, most creative and most impactful hacks.

More information and further details will be announced early 2021. Are you interested in joining Hâck The Hague 2021? Fill in the pre-register form. We will keep you informed of developments and you will be one of the first to know when the official registration for HTH21 will start.

No Hâck The Hague in 2020

As of last April, we investigated whether Hâck The Hague could continue as an event in City Hall in September 2020 or later in the year. It was deemed too great a risk because of the national ban on events with more than 100 people until at least 1 September, and the uncertainty regarding the course of the virus.

Naturally, we did look at alternatives, such as a smaller scale or an online edition. However, the open and transparent aspects of Hâck The Hague with the visible presence of hackers is what characterises the event. Moreover, there are few opportunities to include the residents of The Hague in the importance of cybersecurity. That’s why we have decided to move Hâck The Hague, in its original version, to next year 2021.

Digital Safety

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.
