Objectives of the Hackathon:
SECURITYDAYS aims to promote the development of an innovative African ecosystem in terms of security and digital trust. This 7th edition will see the organization of a hackathon (contraction of the terms "hack", construction of a craft and "DIY" solution, and marathon) dedicated to innovation. Based on a challenge expressed by a "end-user" partner of the event concerning a usage requiring a high level of security, several teams will work for one day to propose innovative solutions integrating security "by design".
