Exhibition and meetup
This community meetup centres around Tobias Groenland’s groundbreaking exhibition Hackers Handshake, hosted by Primalbase Amsterdam. The spectre of cybersecurity is a constant presence today, with nefarious forces constantly probing the systems of both private and public sector organisations for vulnerabilities. But while hackers have largely been mythologised and demonised in Hollywood and the mainstream press, there is another side to the story.

This exhibition tells that side of the story, shining a light on those helpful hackers who seek, find, and report vulnerabilities in computer systems in order to improve security. White hat hackers today play an invaluable role, and the Netherlands is leading the way.

At this event, not only will you gain a better understanding of the people involved and their stories through art, you’ll also hear from those working in the space themselves. You will hear from both ethical
