This past April (2023), the Hackfest community tragically lost one of their own. Josh Arsenio embodied the best qualities of any human. He was a terrific friend, mentor, and supporter of the security industry.
Josh was an individual known for going out of his way to support those in need, especially when it came to extending his professional network to assist those looking for new opportunities.
The Hackfest event will truly never be the same without Josh’s wit, charm and undeniable style.
To honor his memory, and ensure that Josh is forever part of the community we have permanently renamed the opening cocktail event to “Josh Arsenio’s Networking Event”.
We hope that you join us this year to not only celebrate the life of our dear friend, but to also use this opportunity to expand your own network within the community.
We are honored to have known Josh, and are eternally grateful for the support he showed to the Hackfest and Canadian cybersecurity communities over the years.
