Code of conduct



This Code of Conduct outlines our expectations for participant behavior, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
All participants at BlackAlps are required to adhere to this Code of Conduct. The term “participant(s)” includes all attendees, organizers, speakers, sponsors, volunteers, and other invited guests for the duration of the event.
BlackAlps is dedicated to providing a positive and safe event for everyone, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, age, economic status, technological choices.
In order to create a fun and safe environment for everyone, BlackAlps does not tolerate any form of unacceptable behavior, including (but not limited to) harassment.
Apart from the infrastructure specifically put in place for that purpose during the CTF competition, any use of the facilities in place (physical and logical) to hack or commit illegal acts is strictly forbidden.

Expected behaviors

Expected behavior of attendees include, but is not limited to, the following:
  • Treat others with respect and dignity;
  • Treat them fairly and without unfair or illegal discrimination;
  • Do not offend others with foul language, anti-social behavior or discriminatory behavior;
  • Treat the environment with respect;
  • Do not interfere with other people enjoyment of the facilities or activities;
  • Do not engage in activity or behavior likely to bring the BlackAlps organization into disrepute;
  • Comply with the reasonable requests of the BlackAlps staff;
  • Respect the confidentiality of others;
  • Use the BlackAlps event resources responsibly and honestly;
  • Do not act dishonestly or with intent to commit fraud.

Photography policy

During the event, an official photographer will be present to capture some moments. He will do his best to respect the different requests to not be photographed.
Black Alps keeps the right to publish pictures of the current and past events. Those pictures could be available on multiple platforms such as :
  • Social media (Youtube, Twitter, Linkedin)
  • Our Website
  • Event promotional material
If a photograph is posted, and it contains an attendee that does not want to appear, a request can be made at to make him unidentifiable.
Anyone taking photos during the event is expected to respect this policy if contacted by an attendee.

Security Vulnerabilities Responsible Disclosure Policy

BlackAlps organizers take security issues very seriously and recognize the importance of preserving privacy and security through a responsible disclosure policy.


Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, nationality, or religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, photography or audio/video recording against reasonable consent, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Sponsors and partners are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material.
If you are being harassed or if you notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact any member of BlackAlps staff immediately. BlackAlps staff will be willing to help participants contact any local security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.
