Call for Speakers: ClubHack Security Conference 2012

ClubHack is one of India’s foremost conferences on Security and is now in its 6th year. As usual, it will be on the first weekend of December (1st to 3rd) in Pune.

However, rather than focusing on just plain security and awareness of security, ClubHack is now changing its focus. Here is the motivation:

ClubHack when started in 2007, dreamt that people in India will wake up and start thinking information security seriously. We even decided our motto as “Making Security a Common Sense”. After 5 long years, today we witness a lot of action around the country in this field, media as well as working professionals are actually looking towards security seriously.

Waking up to an extent that today we see 5-6 similar events in India on the same line. Hence we have now decided to confer the task of rest of the awakening to them and start a new journey.

ClubHack2012 onwards, we will concentrate our energies in empowering innovation & leadership development. Having loved our domain so much, we’d continue to do this in the domain of information security only. And that coins our new motto line “Empowering Innovation & Leadership in Information Security”

With this in mind, this year’s ClubHack is looking for speakers who can emphasize entrepreneurship in this space. So, here is a partial list of suggested topics:

  • Entrepreneurship in infosec product development
  • Research work in infosec
  • Innovation in attack vectors
  • Attacks on Cloud
  • Mobile computing
  • Malware & Botnets
  • Privacy with social networks
  • Telecom Security (3G/4G, SS7, GSM/CDMA, VoIP) and Phone Phreaking
  • Hardware, Embedded Systems and other Electronic Devices Hacking
