We are proud to announce that BSG representatives take part in the National Cyber Security Hackathon.
The hackathon is held by the State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection of Ukraine and NATO. The hackathon is conducted in the NATO Tide Hackathon format. Cyber security experts and students of cyber security university programs compete in teams to solve several defensive cyber security tasks during the hackathon. The assignments are focused on various aspects of cyber security, such as critical infrastructure assets protection, cyber security incident response, and cyber security threat intelligence.
Vlad Styran, the BSG co-founder and CEO, and Serhii Korolenko, Lead Consultant and the BSG Cyber Security Training Lead, participate in the hackathon. Serhii mentors the teams and shares his experience and knowledge of cyber security penetration testing and security engineering. Vlad is both on the jury of the main hackathon event and will be speaking at the seminar held on November 17 at 11:50 Kyiv time (GMT+2). Tune in to the official hackathon video stream: there will be one for the English and the Ukrainian. The talk title is: “Why All Software Is Vulnerable and How to Develop Less Insecure Code”.
We are delighted to see that such events of cyber security information sharing are becoming commonplace in Ukraine. The need for cyber security for the critical infrastructure is the strategic national priority for Ukraine. Taking part in such events allows future experts to advance their cyber security careers. The importance of cyber security cooperation of the private and public sectors never was higher than now.
We are grateful to the event organizers for making the hackathon happen and inviting the Ukrainian cyber security companies to contribute.
