Chaos Computer Club CCC (Main Conference in Germany)
InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
The Chaos Computer Club – more commonly known as ‘Triple C’ is Europe’s largest association of hackers, and, in our opinion one of the best events, you can attend if you are serious about your IT Security!
In the words of the organizers, “For more than thirty years we are providing information about technical and societal issues, such as surveillance, privacy, freedom of information, hacktivism, data security and many other interesting things around technology and hacking issues.”
You can consider this Cybersecurity Conference as also being a ‘HackerCon’ in the traditional sense of the term, not unlike DEF CON. CCC is a very influential hacker collective in Europe and the team behind CCC organize campaigns, events, lobbying, and publications as well as anonymizing services and communication infrastructure. There are many hackerspaces in and around Germany which belong to or share a common bond to the CCC as stated in their hacker ethics.
Update! CCC is part of our “Top 10 Cybersecurity Conferences Mega Blog Post” which was last updated on August 1st 2017. This post represents the biggest and best events that we encourage you to attend (at least once in your lifetime!).
It is worth mentioning that we also have a blog post dedicated to Cybersecurity Events, Conferences and Seminars that take place in Europe.
