The Hague challenges ethical hackers
On the eve of European Cyber Security Month, the municipality of The Hague is once again taking the opportunity to test its own digital security. For the third year in a row, the city has teamed up with Dutch cyber-security company Cybersprint to organise the hacking competition ‘Hack The Hague’. The 2019 edition takes place at The Hague City Hall on the 30th of September, when the atrium will be transformed into ‘The Hague Hackers Dome’. The best national and international ethical hackers, including both students and professionals, are invited to detect vulnerabilities in the digital infrastructure of The Hague’s municipality and its suppliers.
