After two years of exclusive online activity, the most important annual hacking and cybersecurity conference in Central and Eastern Europe returns onsite in Bucharest, on 10th-11th November 2022, to bring together the infosec expert community in the region.

This year’s edition will focus on creating opportunities to reconnect and develop members’ skills, after two years of being exclusively online. The event is physically expected to attract more than 1500 participants from around the world,…
