The Saudi Federation for CyberSecurity, Programming and Drones (SAFCSP) is a national institution under the umbrella of the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee.
The Federation seeks to build national and professional capabilities in the fields of cybersecurity and programming in line with the established and internationally recognised practices and standards, to expedite the ascent of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the ranks of developed countries in the domain of technology innovation. Engaging with tens of thousands of ethical hackers, cybersecurity experts and programmers every year, the Federation is on a mission to make 1 in 100 Saudis, programmers.
It is the mastermind behind some of Saudi's most explosive tech events, including the world record-breaking Hajj Hackathon, presided over by Steve Wozniak, co-Founder of Apple.
“The federation is proud to work with Black Hat to deliver one of the world’s largest and most iconic cybersecurity events, right here, in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”
