During ROOTCON 10, we introduced a new dedicated track for our Capture The Flag, with the comfortable CTF tables and chairs the game was well participated and was enjoyed by most of the players, not just the players enjoyed the game but as well as the spectators passing by. With the Chill-out track near by the CTF area you'll be tempted to Hack All The Drinks and Drink All The Booze.
Kudos to The Illuminated Beings for coming up with a very awesome challenges.
Here are the Statistics.

In-behalf of the goons and volunteers of ROOTCON I would like to personally say THANK YOU!
This years conference was an epic one.
The topics delivered were highly technical and we thank our speakers for that! The trainings were jam-packed, we are looking into expanding our trainings with different cutting-edge topics by next year. The games were well participated, receiving feedbacks that they enjoyed our Capture The Flag this year makes us to do more of it. The newly introduced Semprix’ Mysterybox didn’t gain much players, maybe it was too difficult I will try to adjust the difficulty next year.
With the newly introduced multiple tracks, the Capture The Flag had it’s dedicated area so players can focus more on the game with comfortable table and seats. The chill-out area was another best decision we had, through out the two day conference we consumed 70 liters of beer, awesome right?
The post-con party was pretty epic as well! We consumed 20 bottles of hard-drinks from Jack Daniels, Bacardi, to Mojito, 120 bottles of beer were served not to mention Smirnoff Mule sponsored us 400 bottles!
Right after the conference the goons were already brain-storming what more cool stuffs we can add to next year. Here are some stuffs to watch-out for next year.
1. We will introduce Fort ROOTCON, an area around the conference were tools and exploits have demos.
2. Hacker Jeopardy will be rescheduled for everyone to be able to attend.
3. Day 1 party and movie night will be held at the conference hall.
4. Capture the Flag will be extended from 10:00am to 11:00pm in-conjunction with the day 1 party and movie night.
Some pre-con activities we are brewing up.
1. Campus tour with student Capture The Flag.
2. Hackerspace in January
3. ROOTCON Kids will be introduced as mini-event around the month of May.
ROOTCON will continue to serve the hacking community specially in the Philippines, where hackers, geeks, pros will meet old and new friends, enjoy and of course learn from each other. With that said it wouldn't be possible without our awesome attendees, you rock!
Again I would like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH!
All the best,

The burgeoning infrastructure makes it more difficult to monitor the whole network, to the point where security teams are operating in the dark. As each tool is added, costs associated with installing, configuring, managing, upgrading and patching continue to scale. Not to mention the skills gap plaguing the industry, where the expertise needed to manage and keep up with the latest threats isn’t always available.
More threats, more vendors and more tools make for more headaches.
The Immune System Approach
To see through the chaos, enterprises should approach security like an immune system. Rather than a jumbled set of tools and capabilities, picture an integrated framework of key security capabilities.
At the core of this structure is security intelligence and analytics. This serves as the key piece, ingesting security data across an IT environment (e.g., logs, flows, incidents, events, packets and anomalies) as well as information beyond the enterprise (e.g., blogs, research and websites) to understand threats and take action.
This action mimics the body’s immune response. When exposed to a cold or flu, your body’s integrated network of cells and organs transmits vital information through the nervous system to help pinpoint the virus, disrupt it with antibodies and normalize the body.
Similarly, a healthy security infrastructure uses its own network of integrated security capabilities to intelligently detect the symptoms of a cyberattack — a breach on the network, an abnormal login on a high-value server, rogue cloud app usage, whatever it may be — and respond appropriately.
With analytics at the core, integrated capabilities deliver a level of visibility and defense that no single security solution can provide on its own.
Strength in Integration
Attackers continue to break through conventionally siloed safeguards using techniques that impact the entire IT environment. Consider two of today’s biggest issues: advanced threats and insider threats. Yesterday’s perimeter solutions are no match for the sophistication of these threats.
An integrated threat protection system requires strong network protection, endpoint management and security, data activity monitoring and incident response to fully disrupt and respond to an attack. The system continuously consumes threat intelligence to understand the latest attack vectors. Insider threats are responsible for many of today’s high-profile cybersecurity incidents. To mitigate this risk, enterprises need strong identity controls, which in turn should be integrated with data monitoring and security intelligence that analyzes user behavior to alert, confirm or prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data sources.
In a world where multifaceted threats necessitate integrated solutions, adding more disconnected tools is simply not enough. These fragmented products and services are expensive, complex and cannot fully solve today’s challenges.
Companies are taking a strategic approach to upgrading their defenses. We’re seeing a major shift in demand for platforms that offer integrated, intelligent security solutions backed by a collaborative, extensive partner ecosystem. Boost your security hygiene with a healthy immune system approach.
