In essence, we have a burning desire to uncover the creative capabilities of innovators in universities and small-to-medium-sized enterprises who have been turning their attentions towards security needs.
We want to unearth state-of-the-art security innovations, and challenge the brightest minds in security technology from around the world to submit radically new ideas and game-changing technologies.
