Parameter Security hosts third annual hacking & cyber security conference

March 25, 2015: Saint Louis, MO “In order to beat a hacker, you have to think like one.” These are the words St. Louis-based, ethical hacking firm, Parameter Security, lives by and is the foundation on which ShowMeCon is built. By bringing the only hacking and offensive cyber security conference to St. Louis, ShowMeCon will amaze, frighten and educate event-goers as they get an up-close look into the minds of hackers. This fascinating 2 day conference will run from June 8th through June 9th.

“Last year’s response to ShowMeCon was even more amazing than the year before. Not only did we have local and regional attendees but also people from all over the U.S. and internationally. One attendee came all the way from Iceland,” said Renee Chronister, co-founder and CEO of Parameter Security. “We are excited about this year’s event and have added a third track to accommodate all the remarkable speakers and topics.”

ShowMeCon is geared toward IT and security professionals who fight the war against hackers daily.
