Our most devoted attendees seek out a deeper layer of our annual hacker event. Since the birth of SecretCon there has been something deeper going on beyond the top layered glamour of our hacker culture full of art and music, the many social interactions and friendships, the presentations, the villages/security specializations, competitive and tricky contests. Found throughout the SecretCon events are various storylines of puzzles series revealing themselves in slightly disguised anomalies at every direction.

The convergence of information security and privacy is crucial in safeguarding individuals' data privacy and preventing potential harm from data breaches or misuse.
