Nullcon GOA 2012 - International Security Conference
The open security community is a registered non-profit society and by far the largest security community in India with more than 2000 members comprising of information security professionals, ethical hackers and law enforcement professionals that focuses on Infosec research and assisting Govt. and private organizations with cyber security issues. null has 7 chapters through out India - Pune, Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Delhi, Chennai and Bhopal, interacting with around 5000-6000 people by various activities like monthly meets, security camps, workshops, talks at various events & organizations and executing security projects.
Our portal http://null.co.in provides free information on security research, responsible vulnerability disclosure, open source security software project, white papers, presentations, monthly chapter meets.
We see that currently there is a disconnect between the Govt. agencies and private organizations when it comes to cyber security and aim to fill the gap in a vendor neutral way. We have many projects running that help organizations tighten their security infrastructure, including Keeda Project and nullcon - International
Security Conference and Training.
Keeda Project is a database of vulnerabilities found in the wild which are reported to us by the members or anonymous researchers and we take action by immediately contacting the concerned organization and the respective CERT with information on the vulnerability and assist them in mitigating the threats.
As a part of null initiatives we organize nullcon - International Security Conference (http://nullcon.net), our annual flag-ship event. It is held in Goa in the month of February. At nullcon we call upon security experts from around the world to deliver talks and workshops on the latest technology and techniques in the security
and hacking world. The talks range from web hacking, security & hacking tools, smart phone hacking, cyber warfare to zero day vulnerabilities.
The year 2012 marks a revolutionary change and unprecedented expansion in the way nullcon is organized. With the overwhelming support of our esteemed sponsors, enthusiastic participants and volunteers - null is organizing TWO conferences in 2012 - nullcon Goa on 15-18th Feb 2012 and nullcon Delhi in Oct 2012
