The Hack Summit

C:\> What is The Hack Summit?

The Hack Summit is a continuation of one of the major events in the Polish IT Security – the What The H@ck conference. The 2021 event was organized in a hybrid formula: the networking part will be held stationary, and the conference and exhibition part – online. The event is organised by the Academic Partners Foundation in cooperation with the National Cyber Security Centre.

C:\> What is the hybrid formula of the event?

Looking for a way to deliver an online event with as much value as possible for attendees and maximise their engagement, we decided to adopt the following formula:


The main part of the event, the conference, will be based on live interactive presentations (Q&A sessions), live speeches and recordings of lectures available in the VoD model.

  • 10+ thematic tracks (including 1 track dedicated exclusively to managers)
  • Around 120 live and on-demand speeches
  • Several panel discussions and Q&A sessions


IT Sec Expo will be held virtually, on a custom platform that has proven its effectiveness at fair events organised for over a year.

  • Stands of exhibitors presenting their services and products
  • IT Security job fair for attendees and all interested professionals (also from outside)


In response to numerous voices of the attendees, we have decided to organise some of the events stationary – the networking meetings (mainly the preparty and afterparty) will take place in Warsaw (if the epidemic situation allows it).

  • Preparty & Afterparty
  • Lightning talk sessions
