Improved hackathon – bigger and better

The inaugural #SS17HACK was a great success, as 34 young people hunkered down in a room getting to grips with applications for information security. It was all about getting them to think of ideas and solutions to address problems we have in the information security field.

#SS18HACK will cater to more than 100 young hackers and, once again, our aim is to focus on skills development, mentoring, career guidance, capacity building and recruitment opportunities.

Cyber Security 101 intro day

We have added a one-day intro to cyber security. This would appeal to those who have just started out in infosec or wish to brush up on their foundation skills. We will explain the acronyms and provide a good foundation for what will be presented during the two-day summit.

CISO executive gathering

We are aware that every CISO is busy, and cannot afford one, never mind two, days out of the office. However, we truly believe Security Summit is the place to be, and missing out is not an option. To ensure we meet your needs from an information and time perspective, we have secured a couple of the keynote speakers to meet with you exclusively over a cup of coffee and pastry on day two of the Security Summit.

This is by invitation only and seats are limited. If you are a CISO, CSO, CIO or in a similar position with oversight of the infosec function and you would like to take advantage of this exclusive offer, send your request to

Intro podcasts with keynote speakers

Gain access to the keynote speakers' content in the weeks leading up to Security Summit 2018. We will be interviewing a number of the key presenters and finding out more about them: how they started out, what their key challenges are and more about the topic on which they will be presenting at the summit. You can download these podcasts for free.

Rotating demo labs – Capture the Flag competition

We are setting up a brand new space in the exhibition area and you are invited to come and play and stand a chance to win. Each day of the summit will sport a new grouping of demos and Capture the Flag opportunities. Visit each of these labs on 23 and 24 May, play the game and win big.

Survey results unveiled

ITWeb will carry out an infosec survey leading up to the 2018 event. The results will be revealed during the summit and you will walk away with the published results to use to make accurate business decisions in the coming year.

Cape Town Roadshow

Last, but not least, ITWeb Security Summit will be taking on Cape Town the week following the Joburg event. On Monday 28 May 2018, we will run a workshop with one of our international keynote speakers, and on Tuesday 29 May 2018, we will run a one-day multi-speaker day featuring the best of the best of the 2018 Security Summit agenda.
