Garage48 Cyber Security 2019


When 11-13 October, 2019

Where Tartu, Estonia

  • Overview
  • Technological advancements have flattened the world and brought people from across the globe together via the ever-growing cyberspace. Industry experts predict there will be 6 billion internet users by 2022 (75 percent of the projected world population of 8 billion). Cybercriminals smell blood now, not silicon :)

    In 2019 alone, around 3.6 billion devices that were connected to the internet were used for daily tasks. Data experts have analyzed this and have said that the internet of things will most likely increase and keep on doing so.

    In addition, cybercriminals are using more advanced and scalable tools to breach user privacy, and they are getting results. Two billion data records were compromised in 2017, and more than 4.5 billion records were breached in the first half of 2018 alone.

    Complementary cybersecurity and law enforcement capabilities are critical to safeguarding and securing cyberspace.

    PLEASE JOIN US for the Garage48 Cyber Security Hackathon from 11-13 of October @ University of Tartu!

    The main aim of the Garage48 Cyber Security hackathon is to find solutions to some of the recurring problems or come up with completely fresh approaches which would take the cybersecurity and IoT to the next level!
