Hardwear.io - Hardware Security Conference and Training @ The Hague

Organised by:

As the security incidents encompassing healthcare, telecom systems, connected devices, smart meters, industrial controls are hitting headlines, targets are shifting from breaching data to controlling the systems. These trends are posing a serious threat to the safety and security of organizations but also our lives!



Hardwear.io was conceptualized to provide the IT and security community with a platform to discuss and solve issues pertaining to hardware security. The objective of the conference revolves around four key concerns in hardware, firmware and related protocols i.e. backdoors, exploits, trust and attacks (BETA).

It’s not a surprise that this event is being held on 22 and 23 September at the WTC The Hague (NH Hotel) in The Hague, the international city of Peace, Justice & Security. One of their endorsing partners is The Hague Security Delta, the largest security cluster in Europe.
