About the Conference

THREAT CON is a new initiative that aims to facilitate a gateway to standard practices and create a new development within the field of cybersecurity- for developers, security practitioners, IT administrators or anyone interested. The idea of 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.

THREAT CON 2018, is a community event. This is the first of its kind, a series of annual international security conventions similar to the famous Black Hat and DEF CON conferences. This community event is managed by socially driven ICT professionals forums (from diverse ICT sector), Society for Information Technology, Nepal(SICT Nepal) and ThreatNix, a tight knit group of experienced security professionals who are committed to provide competent cybersecurity solutions.

THREAT CON 2018 is for anyone with an interest in cybersecurity practices and hacking in general. You don’t have to be a proficient hacker or a bonafide security professional to attend and enjoy the event: THREAT CON promises a fantastic, worthwhile experience for everyone, those new to the scene and conference veterans alike.
