InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
OPCDE started in 2017 as a cybersecurity conference with its name derived from “opcode”, short for operational code that determines the computer instruction to be executed.
What began as an industry-specific cybersecurity conference has evolved through involvement in initiatives such as AfricaHackOn in Kenya, to a larger project dubbed as to OPeration Community Development Empowerment.
The key focus of this event is to support grassroots tech projects and communities in vulnerable and low-income communities by leveraging opportunities via their network of expertise and raising awareness around cybersecurity. The organizers strongly believe in “reverse diaspora” or “reverse brain drain” whereby they can easily find the right local support and partners. OPCDE intends to support local talents already involved in the cybersecurity scene in their home countries in order to enable opportunities.
