Nullcon first started in 2010 with the idea of providing an integrated platform for exchanging information on the latest attack vectors, zero-day vulnerabilities, and unknown threats. Their event motto is ‘The neXt security thing!’ which drives the narrative of the conference and where security researchers and experts showcase and discuss the future of information security and the next-generation of offensive and defensive security technology. The idea started as a gathering for researchers and organizations to brainstorm and demonstrate why the current technology is not sufficient and what should be the focus for the coming years pertaining to information security.
In addition to security, there is also one section in the conference called Desi Jugaad (Hindi for “Local Hack”) which is dedicated to hacking. The organizers invite researchers who come up with innovative security/tech/non-tech solutions for solving real-life challenges or taking up new initiatives.
Payatu Technologies is the company managing and marketing Nullcon. The idea of nullcon emerged out of null – the open security community, a registered not-for-profit society and the largest active security community in India with over 8 chapters in major cities – Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, Pune, Hyderabad, Mysore, Trivandrum, and Delhi. As a tribute to the community, nullcon funds null to further null’s cause and supports its initiatives.
