ROOTCON is an annual hacker conference and Information Security gathering founded by Dax Labrador, who spoke about Information Security on one of our meetups here at, and is also one of our members.


This conference aims to share best practices and technologies through talks by qualified speakers and demos of exciting stuff (hacks, tools, tips, etc). Learn about solutions, products, techniques and critical tips to build and enhance your security practices & policies from awesome speakers and action-packed activities.

You'll get to network with your peers and meet the presenters who are the industry's leading experts and top security strategists.

The environment is vendor-neutral and focused on the sharing of practical insights and solutions. If you are concerned about information security and want to know more, don't miss this 2-day event!
