“ShowMeCon” Hacking & Cyber Security Conference: May 5 & 6, 2014

After much success last year, Parameter Security and Hacker University are once again hosting the premier hacking and offensive cyber security conference in St. Louis. Last year’s event, TakeDownCon, was a big hit. We’ve changed the name and today, we announce ShowMeCon in May!

ShowMeCon. The name says it all. Known as the Show Me State, Missouri is home to St. Louis-based ethical hacking firm, Parameter Security, and security training company, Hacker University. Together, they are bringing you a one-of-a-kind event that will Show You the State of security from a unique perspective – the hacker’s viewpoint.

This highly technical forum showcases eye-opening presentations from world-renown ethical hackers and epic security ninjas which will leave you amazed and frightened at the same time. By giving you access into the mind of a hacker, you will better understand how to protect your networks and critical data. As we always say “In order to beat a hacker, you have to think like one” and “if you don’t understand the enemy, how can you protect against him?” ShowMeCon pulls back the curtain and exposes how hackers are winning the war on physical and cyber security.

In addition to witnessing real-world hacks, experts will tackle a variety of specialized topics, such as hacking mobile devices, cloud computing, leveraging mobile devices in pen tests, cryptanalysis, how the most protected systems can be breached, defending your systems, computer forensics and more. Discover the latest vulnerabilities, the most powerful exploits and current security threats at this cutting-edge, two day con. Plus, partake in our “capture the flag” event and take your best shot at hacking into various environments.

Whether you’re a large corporation or a small business, you should attend this mind-blowing event as you witness the cream of the crop unveil the latest attacks, techniques, tactics and practices of today’s hackers.
