About DefCamp

DefCamp started back in 2011 as a small infosec gathering among friends. Soon, the meetup became an event and, later on, the largest and most important cybersecurity and hacking conference from Central and Eastern Europe. 

We are here so let’s Learn. Practice. Grow. Connect with the infosec community. 

In 2019 we celebrated the 10th edition with 3 stages packed with interesting briefings & panel discussions for the 2000+ security experts, developers, decision makers, entrepreneurs, members of the academia and private and public sectors from all around the world. 

In 2020 we had a COVID-19 break and for 2021 we moved fully online. In 2022, DefCamp returned onsite, in Bucharest. In 2023, it brought together almost 1,800 participants from over 45 countries. The turnout in such large numbers and the enthusiasm of the participants stood as a powerful motivation to continue strengthening the infosec community and creating a meaningful learning and networking experience. 

On May 16th-17th 2024, DefCamp organized a first spin-off edition in Cluj-Napoca. Almost 400 infosec enthusiasts got together in one of the most important tech hubs in Romania to discuss cybersecurity.

Now, we are preparing for the 2024 edition with lots of enthusiasm and energy while we set up the logistics to meet once again with the community under the same roof, in Bucharest. 

Why ATTEND the DefCamp conference and be part of the community?

01

Stay up to date with the cybernews

The digital landscape needs a strong and united cybersecurity community. We invite you to get involved in exchanging knowledge and developing connections.

How? Share your experience and knowledge in articles, white papers or other types of research and actively contribute valuable information while encouraging others to do the same. 

Time has come to give back and be stronger together, as a team.

02

Learn from infosec rockstars

Over the years, some of the most experienced and generous people in infosec took the stage at DefCamp conference.

You probably saw them too if you attended any (or all!) of the 12 editions of the conference. From basics to advanced tactics and knowledge, you get free access to a rich repository of presentations and videos to learn from. Be a doer and apply at Call for Papers with your research to add your name on the DefCamp rockstars. 

03

Keep your skills sharp

The road to becoming an infosec expert is paved with two things: constant learning and practice.

Why? Well, technology evolves and so do attack techniques, which means that all defenders must practice – a lot. We host regular CTFs and tournaments for different experience levels on CyberEDU to keep the community motivated and sharp. So, plan your infosec training and practice effectively. 

04

Keep on hacking for good

We now have our own playground for all the hacking activities happening in the DefCamp Hacking Village, online on CyberEDU.

CyberEDU will host all future DefCamp competitions ensuring us all the means to  bring together all of you for some hacking for good.
