InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
The inception of ROOTCON was inspired due to the lack of legit security / hacking conference in the Philippines, how the conference is run is fully inspired from the world’s largest hacking conference in the world which is DEF CON. Like DEF CON, ROOTCON controls and minimize product pitching from its sponsors which gives a hell of a boredom to its attendees. To maintain it’s high-caliber talks, ROOTCON screens its speakers and topics through the Call For Papers. Like any other conference, ROOTCON also hosts mind-boggling hacker games such as Capture The Flag, Semprix’ Mysterybox and of course the infamous Hacker Jeopardy.
