Conference Committee & Advisory

DefCamp started in 2011 as a small meetup among friends. Nine years passed since then, 10 successful editions ended and now we are preparing for the 11th.

Over the years we definitely learned a lot and one of the most important learning is to nurture valuable connections and keep the people who believe in us close. That’s why we decided to build the DefCamp Conference Committee, to show our gratitude to people who actively got involved in making DefCamp what it has become.

It’s important to mention that this will to be an open list, meaning that it’s going to be updated in the future so keep a close eye to this. Last but not least, we take this opportunity to thank all of our partners, friends, fools and family who trusted us all this years.

Our mission to raise awareness over the offensive & defensive inner working of technology would have been much harder to achieve and without all of you and DefCamp wouldn’t be here!
