Black Swan Security Congress

26. - 27. 5. 2020 / Prague

About BSSC20 - Human Error
New Dates Will Be Announced
(for more information click here)

Human factor has always been and still remains the biggest information security threat. Most of organizations world-wide invest a lot to assorted technical solutions but not much to precaution against human factor threats. Looking at the common practise we see fecklessness and underestimation when it comes to way how to treat human risks. The obvious asymmetry between majority of successful “cyber attacks” based on some kind of social engineering (phishing mostly) and lack of effort and focus put into this topic on the side of organizations and individuals makes human error the biggest potential black swan of most IT systems security and thou event whole internet reliability and stability. Too flagrant? Click here.

Previous years

Since 2014, our crew has brought to you a number of unforgettable events, like HCPP19 - Opt-out, HCPP18 - New Order, Black Swan 2018, HCPP17 - Liberate!, HCPP16 - Decentralized, HCPP15 - Blackout and HCPP14.


Paralelní Polis is a one-­of-­a-­kind nonprofit organization that brings together art, social sciences, and modern technologies. The ideas of liberty, independence, and innovative thinking and development of society are the main underlying foundations the whole project is built upon.

The project intends to remain state free as it operates entirely without support from the government, and most of the funds come from voluntary contributions of our donors and partly from commercial activities such as running a unique co­working space and the world's first bitcoin-­only cafe.

It was founded by members of a contemporary-­art group Ztohoven, and Slovak and Czech hacker­spaces. Its main goal is to promote economic, social and digital freedom. We try to be a vocal voice of freedom in order to shape the public discourse, and ultimately work towards a freer future.
