THREAT CON is a three-day international hackers convention organized by Threat Nix Pvt Ltd. Now, when we talk about hackers, you may get the image of a guy with a hoodie sitting at his computer in a dark room with his back hunched. But hackers are mostly good people who are trying to find the flaws in the security of our digital infrastructures. So, this is not a symposium of organizations like Anonymous.
What is THREAT CON?
In this convention, skilled cybersecurity professionals get together to share their research, tools, and experiences with each other. The event is going to take place from August 29 – August 31. August 19 and August 30 will be dedicated to workshops. August 31 will be reserved for the conference.
