BEER and cyber safety don’t seem like natural partners, but Cordoba hacker Miguel Angel Arroyo thinks otherwise.

Hack&Beers, a social group created to bring together ‘ethical hackers’, uses free beer as a lure to unite techies who work to promote internet security.

At the meetings, more than 50 hackers get together the try out the latest computer technology and trade tips on securing information online.

But the entrepreneur has bigger dreams than just beer. He hopes to expand Hack&Beers into its own security startup, uniting ethically-minded hackers for drinks and a good cause.
