About the event

GObugfree, together with the Fernfachhochschule Schweiz, is proud to announce GOHack23. The event will kick off with a Symposium on "Cyber Future" that takes place on Thursday Nov 30, 2023. Renowned speakers from politics, academia and business will discuss the interplay of artificial and human intelligence and the impact on the cyber world.

During the Live Bug Bounty Challenge on Dec 1 and 2, 2023, ethical hackers and IT security experts will spend two days searching for security vulnerabilities in challenges posed by program partners. An Educational Track will run in parallel, with talks and demos around ethical hacking and IT security.

The Mission

Our common goal is to make ethical hacking and cybersecurity accessible to all while fostering new IT talent. After all, it is only through the collaboration of many bright minds that we can ensure the cybersecurity of IT systems in the future.

Companies have the opportunity to have their systems checked for security vulnerabilities and thus increase their security. Ethical hackers and cybersecurity experts have the chance to put their knowledge to the test and demonstrate their skills. Students and interested parties will get an insight into the fascinating world of ethical hacking and IT security.

Our event is aimed at students, ethical hackers, security researchers, developers, system and software engineers, and IT professionals. People from business, politics and academia who are interested in cybersecurity and ethical hacking are also welcome.
