THREAT CON 2020 is a continuation in the footsteps of its previous iterations. THREAT CON is intended to aid the creation of an environment that fosters security and hacker culture. It facilitates a gateway into the world of infosec for developers, security practitioners, IT administrators or anyone interested. THREAT CON emerged out of the intention to bridge various actors active in computer security world, including but not limited to security professionals, security communities, systems and network administrator, organisations, students, law enforcement agencies, etc, by providing a scene where all these people can gather and share their take on security and hacking.

This community event is managed by ThreatNix, a tight knit group of experienced security professionals who are committed to provide competent cybersecurity solutions.
