Intrusion attempts are more and more frequent and sophisticated, regardless of their targets (states or corporations).

It's in this context that international hacking events are multiplying. A few events take place in France, but until now, no one had covered hacking practices with a technical approach including both professional training and information aspects.

It is that gap that Hack In Paris aims at addressing. This 4-day corporate event will be held for the first time in France, at the gates of Paris. Hack In Paris will let its attendees discover the concrete reality of hacking, and its consequences for companies. The program includes the state of the art of IT security, industrial espionage, penetration testing, physical security, forensics, malware analysis, and countermeasures.

Hack In Paris will be held from 14th to 17th of June 2011 at Disneyland Paris, and will be split into two distinct parts:
- June 14th and 15th : two days of trainings for both security officers (CISOs, CIOs) and technical experts
- June 16th and 17th will feature talks given by a variety of international speakers and highly technical experts

Finally, this corporate event will give way for the general public event named “Nuit Du Hack” that will occur on June 18th in the same place. This 9-year old conference will feature both technical talks, workshops and a 24-hour hacking challenge. The 2010 event recorded more than 650 attendees, more than 250% compared to the previous year.

Both Hack In Paris and Nuit Du Hack are organized by Sysdream, a consulting and training company specialized in IT security. In addition to its consulting activities, Sysdream has a close working relationship with the biggest white-hat hacker French community, which is the initiator of many projects, like Hackerz Voice, Hackademy Journal, and of course Nuit Du Hack.

As its co-founders (Olivier Franchi and Paolo Pinto) say, “It is the exponential success of Nuit Du Hack in France, combined with the care of companies’ expectations as well as a look on the evolution of American events that lead us to build a corporate event this year. Hack In Paris aims at becoming France’s leading IT security event, pretty much like Black Hat in the U.S.”
