About Hackfest

Multi-award winning Application Security firm Entersoft Security, AustCyber, Advance QLD, OQCE (Office of QLD Chief Entrepreneur) proudly present a 2-day Hackfest to help Australian Tech companies secure their products! It is all about Security at Hackfest.

The event aims to make 15 Tech products secure within 24 hours. White hat hackers from Entersoft, Australia and other certified white hat hackers will be at the event.

Why do Product companies shy away from Cybersecurity?
  • Lack of budget for Application Security.
  • Lack of time for security.
  • Lack of awareness about the need for security.

The objective of the Hackfest is to help Product companies get the security of their applications in place, create awareness about the importance of Application security, and demonstrate Entersoft capabilities in cybersecurity.
