Doing our type of business in a modern-day has its challenges, requires daily sacrifices and ongoing adapting to the buyer for as good customer experience as possible. 

The mission of REAL SECURITY d.o.o. is to expand the knowledge, search for new solutions, improve business processes and connect the people. One of the tools for achieving this is RISK, an established annual event that always manages to bring the latest in business process continuity, productivity and IT security to this region.

RISK grew from a small local IT event more than 14 years ago to the leading regional and multi-regional meeting of established IT security, business continuity/productivity and advanced software solutions specialists. This is a carefully planned and thoughtfully organized event, a lot of time is dedicated to PR activities and promotions, so we are counting on wide media support and coverage and favorable public feedback.
