Africahackon is East Africa’s premier technical computer security collective which brings together the individual talents of the best and brightest security professionals in the region, through live presentations, engaging discussions and hands on demonstrations. We are connoisseurs in a full range of defensive and offensive security topics are well versed in the theoretical aspect of cyber security and masters on the practical and tactical angle of the art.

AfricaHackOn houses not just ICT professionals but architects, electrical engineers, designers and business professionals. We have fun at what we do and boast of having a golden opportunity to shape the Information Security space across the continent.

Africahackon in collaboration with the OWASP Kenyan Chapter had a free 2 day bootcamp between 3rd and 4th July 2015 at JKUAT (Jommo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology) to sensitize them on security as they join the industry.
