The world’s most prominent and well-known computer security conferences.

Computer security specialists, journalists, lawyers, federal government personnel, security researchers, students, and hackers are among those who attend the event.

DEF CON serves as a forum for the newest innovations in software, computer architecture, hardware modification, conference badges, and anything else that can be “hacked.”

The conference features many speaker tracks covering a wide range of computer and hacking issues, cyber-security challenges, and competitions known as hacking wargames. DEF CON is famed for its contests, which range from constructing the longest Wi-Fi connection to figuring out the best way to cool a drink in the Nevada heat.
