The night of September 14th will see the first annual InfoSec Tech & Exec Awards Gala where the brightest ethical hackers, penetration testers, CISOs, and forensics analysts will be honored and the winner in each category will be announced. EC-Council Foundation’s Global CISO Forum conference will also be taking place in conjunction with Hacker Halted and will address information security issues from an executive perspective. However, the suits and the hackers won’t be staying separate for the whole event as the first day will bring both audiences together for the Privacy vs. Security Debate, a joint session intended to foster conversation about government overreach, corporate intrusion, and the responsibility of infosec professionals.
