ROOTCON 9: Thank you

Another epic ROOTCON event has been nailed in history, not just on the ROOTCON history but a history in the Philippine Information Security industry. This year we took extra leap of challenge, we chose another venue for ROOTCON, it was a very hard turn-point for the ROOTCON logistics as we don't know the challenges ahead, but it turned out to be very epic!!!

This years' ROOTCON 9 has been dubbed as the ROOTCON All Star, we have different speakers and con-goers from around the globe. It wouldn't be possible without the RC Goons, Sponsors, Speakers and of course our awesome con-goers.

Hats down to our ROOTCON Elite Sponsors:

HP Fortify on Demand
Netsuite Security
F5 Networks
Tenable Security
First DataCorp

And to the rest of the sponsors big hugs to you guys.

MISNet Education
PaloAlto Networks
Rapid 7
Pandora Security Labs
Security Matters

and to Smiffnoff Mule for providing us drinks at our epic post-con party.

A quick note: What you get at ROOTCON is what you made ROOTCON for you.

Cheers everyone and see you all next year.

All The Best,
Dark (semprix) Meister

More than people turned up to listen to talks on a wide variety of subjects. Aside from Filipino participants, there were also geeks from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Australia, Spain, Malaysia, America, India, etc. who attended the event. Cheers to the attendees who flew to the Philippines just to attend ROOTCON.
