Hak4Kidz is the first official youth based ethical hacking conference in Chicago that is *not* a hackathon.

Hak4Kidz is an event by ethical hackers and Information Security professionals dedicated to bring the educational and communal benefits of hacking conferences to children and young adults. We plan to accomplish this mission by putting our collective expertise and passion on display for the attendees to interact with us at their will. A combination of youth base speaking tracks complementing an open area of stations will enable the attendees to expand and enlighten their technical interests. For innovation to perpetuate, it’s imperative that today’s young users are exposed to the bigger picture of how we got here and to help realize their potential.
