Yakety Hack: Tech Talks and Hacker Challenges

Learn, improve, and challenge your hacker skills with workshops, CTFs, and tech talks while meeting and networking with other security professionals! All levels of experience are welcome.

Bi-monthly event, taking place at our NYC office in Soho.

At Yakety Hack you’ll learn the skills hackers use to compromise various systems and what you can do to defend against them. And, as you develop, there will be opportunities to put into practice everything you’ve learned. All levels of experience are welcome.

Join a community of like-minded cybersecurity enthusiasts every other month – with free pizza and drinks!

About Yakety Hack

We believe that to defend against hackers we need to understand how they operate. Understanding the attacker’s mindset is a key principal in our approach to helping organizations and people secure themselves.

It’s also why our security consultants regularly meet for hacker nights, presenting their latest research and running challenges in what we call our ‘Playground’ environment. In early 2019, we decided to open our doors and invite fellow security professionals in NYC to join us, creating a fun community where everybody learns from each other, regardless of experience levels.

And, in the process, we’re helping to address the skills shortage in the industry.
