In collaboration with CYCO Cybercrime and Computest, Van der Valk Exclusief invited hackers for a hackathon on Friday, March 17 at Hotel Zwolle. They were challenged to hack and/or improve the new Van der Valk lock system. In addition to the control measures with regard to the new lock system and the distribution of online room keys by means of an app and a bluetooth function, the family company was also receptive to benign security researchers who could contribute to the security and safety of the system. During the events, hackers rushed into the fray to hack digital locks and to challenge the new technology.
