Inspirational Hacker Photos, and a Chance to Get Yours at BSides Boston!

April 13, 2017   |   Gwen Betts   |   Events

If you’ve never seen a hacker in action, it might look a little something like this (according to stock photos):

Cool hues with a vignette that captures a dark figure in a black hoodie, hunched over a laptop with a magnifying glass, and a digital rain backdrop to accent the mood.

Does this sound like you after a night of intense keyboard clacking? As your neighborhood defenders, we can appreciate a good hacker photo when we see one. Which is why we’re offering a chance for you to get your very own, personalized hacker photo taken this Saturday at BSides Boston.

Need a new profile photo for LinkedIn to show off your hacker side? Want a more realistic hacker pic so your fellow hackers will recognize you? Looking to display a creative streak with a new hacker prop, say a malware or virus sign superimposed in front of you?

Then stop by our table to get your best picture taken — we’ll even give you an actual printed photo on the spot! And while you’re there, you can snag some Komand swag (t-shirt, webcam cover, the usual), see our security orchestration and automation platform in action (rumor has it, we have a sweet product), and even enter for a chance to win a “This Is Fine” Dog plush (fire or overwhelming situation not included).

To get you ready for a new hacker glamour shot, we’ve got some inspiration from actual hackers. Here are some of our faves:

1. Hello yes, this is hacker

You can stop by at any time to get your photo taken, to see a demo of the product, or to get Komand swag. The BSides Boston 2017 venue is located at the Harvard University Science Center.
