The folks at Derpcon have made huge efforts to put on a fantastic online event – which is aimed at (I think!) Penetration Testers and Cybersecurity Practitioners. So, if you’re based in Colorado and assuming that quarantine is still in effect then we’d absolutely recommend you to take part in this excellent event. We wish the organizers the best of luck with it.
Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Wednesday, April 15th 2020, or created by us.
COVID-19 has affected huge sectors of everyday life, but many professionals in the InfoSec community were fortunate enough to have employment that transitioned to remote work.
While many folks around the nation are facing medical or financial hardships, the organizers wanted to find a way to give back to those in need. Their solutions were to create DerpCon 2020 (derpcon.io). In the words of the organizers, “We may not be able to be on the front lines of this crisis, but we can use our efforts to provide an interesting information security conference to share knowledge and passion with our community. Most importantly, we can help those in need through donations from kind-hearted infosec individuals from all over.”
The event also has a call for papers where talks should be anywhere from 40 – 50 minutes, to provide time for Q & A at the end. Please take note that the talks should adhere to one of our three-track themes:
Team Red: Technical offensive techniques, tactics, & procedures. Penetration testers, red teamers, and bug hunters.
Team Blue: Technical defensive techniques, tactics, & procedures. Systems & network administrators, architects, and trench grunts.
Tales from the trenches: Day in the life/survival stories/everything else.
