Hacking matters. The term hacking has gotten away from us over the years. I believe we’ve reclaimed it, to a certain extent. The goal of this panel is to discuss all things hacking culture. What does it mean to be a hacker and how do we preserve the hacking ideology?

This segment is sponsored by Innocent Lives Foundation.

Hacking Matters Panel

A play on words for sure, this panel will discuss “Hacking Matters”. We will address why hacking matters, to our community, and to society as a whole. It’s difficult to imagine a world without hackers. Which brings us to the second aspect of our panel, to address the matters of hacking. Specifically, we will aim to address the following:

- How do hackers help society today and into the future?
- How do we preserve the hacking spirit?
- How do we recognize the hacker in ourselves and in other people?
- How do we protect hackers from those creating and enforcing laws?
- What are some of the qualities of a hacker? Persistence? Creativity?
- How do we guide the youth of today to become ethical hackers? (Not so much in the penetration testing sense, but related to morals and ethics).
- Hackers love to explore, what advice do we have for those who explore technology to find vulnerabilities and are met with lawyers rather than open arms?
- What are some of the best examples of hacking in his-tory and popular culture?
- Can we teach someone to be a hacker? Or is hacking something you are born with and we can help you unlock it?
- How do we deal with this ethical dilemma: You’ve discovered a way to “break” a system, if you expose it good people will know about it (and hopefully fix it), but the evil attackers now also know about it and could abuse it?
