Come and Celebrate with Us

Cybersecurity - 25 years ago, nobody knew this word. We were still outsiders with our business idea. Today, we cannot do without IT security. The impact on all our lives is too great.

At our anniversary event, we will be touching on topics that have been with us for a quarter of a century, as well as a topic that is rather new in the field of cybersecurity. And quite fascinating!

And we will take a close look  when our "analog hacker" is up to mischief. 

Join us on Friday, June 28, 2024 and raise a glass to 25 years of Compass Security.


Choose your favourites from four different workshops. Whether you want to deepen your knowledge on the topic, learn about new topics, or get straight down to business - our teams will make sure that it's worthwhile for everyone.
