Hackfest Annual Event

Hackfest is the largest hacking event in Canada and brings together more than 800 computer security enthusiasts. The event takes place over two days of technical conferences about security and hacking and is preceded by 3 days of training.

Both nights let participants measure their security and hacking skills in a unique CTF (Capture The Flag). The whole evening is accompanied by a lockpicking contest, DJ atmosphere, workshops, evening conferences, live podcast recording and more.

Capture The Flags (CTF)

On Friday evening, more than 220 participants gather and participate in the unique CTF organized by the Hackfest every year.

Each year a special element that is not found anywhere else is part of our CTF. It could be a model with environment similar to the SCADA, a reactor, games of Red VS Blue or other!

Hackfest Party

Saturday night party brings together more than 300 participants to play CTFs offered by our partners, listen to a podcast recorded live or socialize to the sound of the DJ and with the bar offered by our partner.

Definitely not to be missed!
