DEF CON 26
InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
Started by the legend that is Dark Tangent (Jeff Moss) DEF CON (spelt like that, i..e two separate words) is, really, the world’s best known “hacker convention” or “hacker conference.” DEF CON is held every year in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA and the first DEF CON took place in June 1993 so it”s also one of the oldest (and therefore original) cybersecurity meetings. In fact, we’d really encourage you to watch the DEF CON documentary linked below this section; it really is a fascinating insight into how this iconic cyber conference came into being.
Consider this as the biggest and baddest Cybersecurity Conference to attend and a “must” for any serious Infosec Professional.
