Join HALON and 'hack' an educational institution

Are you a student or employee with a hacker mindset? And do you want to make Dutch education more cyber resilient? Then HALON is for you. This year HALON will take place on October 10 at Windesheim University of Applied Sciences in Zwolle.

HALON is a hacking event for education, by education. With your team you will search for vulnerabilities in the open IP ranges and a number of domain names of various Dutch educational institutions. By finding vulnerabilities, you also contribute to the cyber resilience of these institutions. The organisation is in the hands of SURF, the ict collaboration for education and research. They ensure proper handling of found vulnerabilities.

For whom?

HALON is intended for students and employees of universities, colleges and mbo's. It is helpful if you already know your way around IT systems, but even if you are not yet so experienced, you are welcome.
