Hakdefnet is a German Security Research Start-Up that gives customers
the opportunity to protect themselves more comprehensively, cheaper and
easier than ever before based on real research. We help you to analyze
security gaps, find stolen data – including Darknet, and can use that
information to help you become more aware of those threats and risks by
that actual research. We don’t sell fear, we teach, consult and do
research that results in tangible results.

Based on CyberNSight, V-CISO and our RIPE Subscriptions, our customers
not only know if but also how they can be attacked, and what happens
with their data. This (we believe) is the only way to really minimize
the damage caused by attacks, security breaches, etc. and how avoid them
in the future.

SANS courses are full of important and immediately useful techniques that you can put to work as soon as you return to the office.

he sic[!]sec GmbH was founded in 2010 by real security specialists and consultants with many years of professional experience in web application security and information security.

Due to our employees’ intelligence, expertise, reliability and passion, indeed personal obsession with information purity and security, DAX corporations, banking and insurance companies, software manufacturers, media and television companies, portal and e-commerce companies and many, many more have sought and benefited from our services, becoming regular valued customers.

As adepts with integrity, we are always able to address the concerns of our customers to their advantage throughout the entire spectrum of information security issues – thanks to our deep roots in the international IT security community and large professional network in the business world. We can often alert and advise our customers as to high-impact issues they weren’t even aware of and thus help them stay one step ahead of the predatory practices prevalent in the IT netherworld or at secret services throughout the world.

Precision information security services – made in Germany with pride and integrity.


Auxilium protects customers, partners and nations as well as what they value most (freedom, privacy, protected business operations, protection against unauthorized access and attacks).
We have years of experience in global security, consulting, training, security audits and penetration tests that are legendary (we find what others can’t because we don’t rely on scanners).

What is BruCON?

BruCON is an annual security and hacker(*) conference providing two days of an interesting atmosphere for open discussions of critical infosec issues, privacy, information technology and its cultural/technical implications on society. Organized in Brussels, BruCON offers a high quality line up of speakers, security challenges and interesting workshops. BruCON is a conference by and for the security and hacker(*) community.

The conference tries to create bridges between the various actors active in computer security world, included but not limited to hackers(*), security professionals, security communities, non-profit organizations, CERTs, students, law enforcement agencies, etc…..

(*)Hackers are “persons who delight in having an intimate understanding of the internal workings of a system, computers and computer networks in particular.” People who engage in illegal activities like unauthorized entry into computer systems are called crackers and don’t have anything to do with hacking. BruCON doesn’t promote any illegal activities and behavior. Many hackers today are employed by the security industry and test security software and systems to improve the security of our networks and applications. In addition, for the younger generations, we want to create some awareness and interest in IT students to learn more about IT Security.
