The motivation behind SafeHack is to encourage our hackers to consider their responsibilities in building something that is intrinsically safe from the beginning, by doing so we are adding a Cyber Security awareness component onto our next hack.
As the majority of hackers at a Hackathon have little to no background in secure systems we will start the SafeHack with a secure coding beginners tutorial session.
This will go over some basic ways in which code can be compromised, and show how if care is not taken, the information or your solution may be completely taken over by another party.
These are the things Geekulcha requires of the council
