We’re living in a digital age. There’s no denying that. The world has become immeasurably wiser and efficient since the advent of the Internet. You’re connected to the whole world at any given time of the day. Concepts like carrying your whole bank account in your phone or being in a room with people without physically being present, seemed too far fetched not too long ago. The world is a lot more closer, a lot more connected. But like every good things, this digital age is not without its shortcomings.
Terms like cyber crimes, hacking, data leak are heard on a regular basis. Compromise of data is the new big threat to the world. An individual or an organisation with a big enough database of sensitive information can virtually exploit the people in it. Privacy has more or less became a myth. Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter carry sensitive information about billions of people. They have access enough to actually manipulate their users to take the action that will benefit them. And it’s not just these organisations; any hacker or hacker organisation with enough resources can get their hands on all this sensitive data that are stored by these companies. We heard of such an event last year only, when millions of Twitter accounts got compromised. Amidst all these activities, how can a person protect him/herself from what seems like an inevitable theft?
There is an answer. C0C0N-X is 2 day conference and workshop about hacking and cyber security. Of all the cyber security conferences in India, C0C0N-X stands out.
