For many, DEF CON epitomizes hacking which traditionally involves an offensive mentality. However, in recent years, attacks have become trivially easy to exploit in any environment meaning that effective defense has been difficult. Defenders have to deal with legacy, politics, and resource constraints and typically have less public information on how to best protect their environment when compared to the red side. This leaves defenders at DEF CON feeling a bit left out with most, if not all, of the content favoring red. This village is a DEF CON paradigm shift providing an area where Blue Teams can gather, learn basic and advanced defensive techniques, swap war stories, and have fun. Blue Team Village at DEF CON (BTV) promotes defensive security knowledge and its dissemination throughout the greater DEF CON community. At the BTV, you’ll find valuable information on defensive security from the very basic 101-level concepts through the latest, most advanced techniques we can get past NDAs. We also have contests, so you can prove your skills in securing systems — and perhaps even show some of those red teamers what’s what.

We're proudly sponsored by Kuppering Cole. They've geneoursouly given our community a 15% discount on all ticket sales. Use code "infosecspecial15" to apply the promo. Their next event will be "Cybersecurity Leadership Summit 2019"
