Hacking for Heroes will return…

In 2021 ZX Security pledged to help secure selected non-profit organisations working hard to provide invaluable services to the community and supporting vulnerable groups of people around NZ.

Our desire to help these ‘Heroes’ is a key part of ZX’s culture and strategy focused on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) activities that make a real difference to our world.

In the first year of our Hacking for Heroes (H4H) programme we selected 7 Kiwi organisations to support through cyber security consulting and provided:

  • 8 web application penetration tests
  • 4 security awareness presentations
  • 1 phishing campaign to educate staff on common social engineering attacks

H4H: The Sequel

We’re excited to announce that Hacking for Heroes will return in 2022 - the ZX team enjoyed working with these organisations and we’ll be opening up another selection round soon.

Expressions of interest can be opened shortly - watch our LinkedIn page for more details. Applications will close in February 2022 and we look forward to helping another group of Heroes in the new year.
