Insomni’hack has become one of the most iconic events in Europe in the field of cybersecurity. The traditional ethical hacking competition (CTF) is one of the highlights of the event.

More broadly, more than 30 conferences animated Insomni’hack 2024 on various themes covering, for example, the evolution of attack and defense techniques, the security of connected objects, and crisis cyber management.

Interview with Sergio Alves Domingues, the one of the event’s organizers:

What were the memorable moments of this edition?

We had a very successful edition with a strong turnout. The conferences on Thursday and Friday were led by high-level speakers in a quality auditorium. Additionally, the ethical hacking competition attracted over 600 participants, bringing the total number of participants to nearly 2000 people.

Why did you choose to organize this event at the SwissTech Convention Center?

The SwissTech Convention Center is an exceptional venue, particularly thanks to Auditorium A, which successfully hosted the ethical hacking contest, gathering 600 participants. The lively atmosphere of the EPFL campus also offers participants an enriching experience. Moreover, its proximity to downtown Lausanne is an additional advantage.

How did the SwissTech contribute to the success of your event?

The spaces and the building are perfectly suited to our needs. The collaboration proceeded very smoothly and satisfactorily with Geneviève, our Event Manager. The technical team demonstrated remarkable skills.

What are your plans for the future of Insomni’hack?

Let’s continue to progress and become the major conference in Europe in cybersecurity.
