SBA Research is a research and consulting center for Information Security based in Vienna, and calls itself a “Home of Nerds”. We thus have started hosting Meetups spotlighting all aspects of Security in 2018. By doing so we intend to establish and foster a community of people interested in IT & Information Security and related areas. As soon as things return to normal, we very much look forward to welcoming you to beer, snacks and lively discussions among likeminded on-site. Since we want to give you the chance to join from wherever you are, we will however continue to live stream all of our MeetUps in the future as well.
