Join the largest cybersecurity community from CEE





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. 

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 decided to go hybrid and continue to create meaningful infosec experiences and host exciting cybersecurity competitions you’d usually find in the DefCamp Hacking Village and in our Community. 

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

4 ways to GROW as part of the DefCamp community


Get involved

The digital landscape needs the 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.


Learn from 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 10 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. 


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 to keep the community motivated and sharp. So, plan your infosec training and practice effectively. 


Keep on hacking for good

We now have our own playground for all the hacking activities that used to take place in the DefCamp Hacking Village, on CyberEDU.

Set up your free account to participate in exciting competitions that test your skills while engaging your competitive spirit. And yes, the best hackers get prizes and their special place in the competition’s Hall of Fame. will host all future DefCamp competitions ensuring us all the means to  bring together all of you for some hacking for good.

Learn directly from the infosec rock stars you saw on stage at DefCamp! Explore the interviews, tap into their experience, and accelerate your growth.
