Wild West Hackin’ Fest is different from most cybersecurity conferences you have heard of or attended. For one thing, WWHF is held in Deadwood, South Dakota. Deadwood is a small tourist town with a long and colorful history. In fact, the entire town is a National Historic Landmark with roots going back to 1876, when outlaws, gamblers and gunslingers like Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, and Poker Alice came to town looking for gold and a good time.
