Once a month, our partner and co-Chair of SEV’s Innovation Committee, Marco Veremis hosts innovative Greeks, who excel by achieving increasingly higher goals. His guests unfold their stories and share with us their exciting journey, experiences gathered along the way, but also their recipe for success.

Haris Pylarinos is the founder and CEO of Hack The Box, a platform that focuses on continuous training, certification, and assessment in cybersecurity for businesses, government bodies, universities, and individuals.

This journey started when he was merely 12, of a computer class at his school. Despite the advice from his educators to his parents, suggesting that Haris should divert his focus to more conventional subjects, he chose a different path.

Haris embarked on a quest to breach the security of his father’s computer, driven by a burgeoning passion for hacking. In a revealing dialogue with Marco Veremis, Haris unfolds the narrative of Hack The Box’s genesis, delves into the operational intricacies and hurdles of the venture, and shares his contemplations on how he would opt to spend his final day on this planet.
