A series of interactive learning experiences hosted by cloud security experts to escalate the security discussions

What is Hack’d?

Designed as an interactive community event, the Hack’d series brings Lacework customers and other cloud security professionals together in an intimate setting to create a comfortable environment for learning and development. Each attendee begins with pre-work that reviews the thematic focus for the event. In sessions, class facilitators frame the incident, facilitate the discussion and apply the underpinnings of modern security practice to study how the event was – and could be – handled.

Hack’d events are hosted by leading cloud security experts including Niels Provos, Head of Security Efficacy at Lacework and Ulfar Erlingsson, Chief Architect at Lacework.

Hack’d events are held regularly throughout the year and are open for both Lacework customers and other cloud security professionals. The current schedule, subject to change, is below. Please note that Hack’d events are designed to be interactive and engaging. Please expect to have your camera on be prepared to participate. As in any interactive learning environment, participation is key!

Resources including pre-work and presentation decks for Hack’d events are available in the Hack’d discussion section of the community. The content is open for all, and while it acts as a foundation to Lacework-led events, it can also be used to lead sessions at companies outside of the Lacework sphere.

All Hack’d alumni are additionally invited to the private community user group, which anchors the shared experience across teams.
