An initiative that brings together more than 50 national and international speakers, who will present and discuss the latest developments in cybersecurity, blockchain technology and everything that converges in the field.

The course corresponds to a training action of C1b3rWall Academy, an activity that gathered more than 41000 people from 82 countries in the 2020 edition. This time we are participating in its organization and we are confident that it will be a great success.
