QuBit started its journey as an idea. That idea came to life in 2014, when the first QuBit Conference was organized by its founders Ondrej and Maria, with the first 25 attendees onboard. They created the core of the community and attended each year ever since. In 2019 the 6th annual conference attracted almost 250 professionals.
Ondrej’s vision of creating a cybersecurity community event in Central Europe symbolizes his gratitude towards the Central European region. After all, this is where he grew up and received his world-class computer science and informatics education, which opened the doors to the United States for him. After two decades of a successful cyber career in New York City, he met Maria, an open-minded and hardworking professional, and the dream was ready to become a reality. Together, they created a small team of enthusiastic and highly motivated people with a clear vision and a very strong mission.
QuBit strive to bring together and build a cybersecurity community of like-minded fellows.
Our mission is to create a community of knowledge and information sharing for the industry’s experts and professionals through networking & education events.
Our idea is to connect regional communities to become one united international cybersecurity community, so the world becomes a safer place to live in. We listen to the community needs and use the valuable feedback to constantly improve. We keep doing our best to create a space where cybersecurity experts can share their knowledge and build long-lasting relationships in an environment of trust and comradery.
We listened to the needs of experts in the field and filled in the missing gap by creating a place where cybersecurity professionals can share their knowledge and establish business relationships with the feeling of trust and a higher sense of growing the community they are a part of.
After the praise we received following the first QuBit Conference organized in Prague in 2014, we knew we were on the right path. The reception of the event was overwhelmingly positive, and the community was ready to grow.
As the interest throughout Central and Eastern Europe grew, our Serbian colleagues invited us to their home country. We accepted the offer and organized the first QuBit Conference in Belgrade in 2017 with 100+ professionals in attendance. Different culture, different stage of development, but the same hunger for education and knowledge sharing.
We were also approached by experts from Bulgaria who opened their door for us. As a result, in 2018 we brought the first QuBit conference to Sofia. And it was a great success with a strong base for future growth.
