Every year since 2009, adventurous members of the information security community have come together each September to take part in an annual, fun car rally. Combining excitement, enjoyment and philanthropy, the event raises much-needed funds for the incredible children’s charity, Barnardos, in stopping child abuse, online bullying, grooming and sexual exploitation.
Organiser of the White Hat Rally, Martin Law of Agility IS, noted “Our event brings together like-minded, socially responsible participants from all aspects of the information security sector with a collective goal – to improve the lives of the UK’s vulnerable children and young people by raising funds for Barnardos”.
The 2017 event has the theme “Knight Riders” – a medieval themed jaunt around Dorset and Hampshire, solving head-scratching puzzles, deciphering clues, and getting involved with a number of whacky activities along the way. Those who try hardest (or are just plain lucky), will gather the most points and have a chance at adding a “prestigious” trophy to the corporate display cabinet. Why not enter a team of between 2 and 4 people? Each team’s entry fee includes all daytime activities, coffee, lunches, and goody bag – which contains route books, maps and t-shirts. Teams need to cover their own accommodation costs (great hotels available at reduced cost), breakfast, dinner, fuel and beer.
If you’re not able to enter a team, why not become a corporate sponsor? A fantastic means of getting your brand, product or service known not only by the event participants, but in a very notable way at every one of the many locations we will be visiting – alongside branding on team members, shirts, vehicles, literature, social media and much more.
InfoSaaS is proud to once again be supporting the event, and joins a veritable “Who’s Who” of socially responsible organisations who do the same. More details on the website. See you in September!
