The Executive Summit is where 100 executives managing the most advanced, sophisticated, and helming the security of the largest organisations in the world are invited to speak and share their insights, experience, and thought leadership. These speakers are carefully selected to ensure: 

  • They are senior decision-makers (normally CISOs or C Level-1) responsible for influencing information security strategy at their organisations
  • Their organisations are large scale, normally spanning several cities or countries
  • They protect critical infrastructure or digital assets that are used en masse for the good of society
  • They protect organisations that are particularly at risk of security breaches from hostile state actors or criminal entities, such as government, pharma, and banks

Black Hat MEA is far more than an event in a moment in time. We want to serve the community all year round. That’s why we think of it as a social movement – because it’s not a pure-play commercial conference and exhibition, it’s a grassroots movement where you decide the trainers, the topics, the features, and year-round social activities.


Black Hat MEA in collaboration with Saudi Federation for Cybersecurity, Programming & Drones (SAFCSP) will host a Capture The Flag Tournament, with over 1,000 participants entering the final stages at different levels of competency: amateur, intermediate, and expert, to help strengthen their ethical hacking skills. Year two will see the capture the flag competition run as a jeopardy-style competition both in the qualification and final stages. Participants will be challenged across a range of categories during the competition including:

  • Web
  • PWN
  • Forensics
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Crypto and others.

Approximately 250 teams (1,000 participants) will battle it out in the final over a three-day challenge to compete for cash prizes and the honour of being the tournament’s winner. To be one of the participants for the CTF final round, you must rank amongst the top 1,000 participants in the qualification round. Details of the qualification and final rounds are below
