Black Hat Sessions

The Black Hat Sessions is Secura's annual security conference. Conceived fourteen years ago as an afternoon to share knowledge, it has grown into a successful event in the world of IT security. The informal atmosphere, the interaction with speakers and delegates and the diverse schedule have been appreciated for years by both IT Pros and management.

On June 29th 2017 Secura organised the 15th edition of our annual security congres de Black Hat Sessions. We look back on a great day with a lot of enthusiastic participants, inspiring talks, good conversations and a very positive vibe. Thanks to all 400+ participants, the sponsors, media partners, congres4u and of course the speakers for your contribution. We hope you all enjoyed it. Please see for more information.

Secura is happy to announce the 16th edition of the Black Hat Sessions. This is the perfect way to catch up, in one day, with renowned speakers and experts in the field of digital security. The talks will range from technical in-depth topics like BSPA and IoT crypto to more high level topics such as GDPR and Privacy by Design.

We are please to look back on a very successful event.

Several national and international speakers offered information on, among others, vital Dutch infrastructure, DDoS attacks, SCADA systems, ERPsystems and Industrial Control Systems (ICS). This year's keynotes were provided by ir. Eric Luiijf of TNO and Hans de Vries, head of the NCSC.
