The DefCamp team

DefCamp started in 2011 as a small meetup among a group of online friends who wanted to share their IT security knowledge. Over the years, more and more people with a shared passion for cybersecurity came together in Bucharest to connect and learn from top-tier security specialists, entrepreneurs, researchers, and scientists.

The DefCamp experience includes inspirational speeches, interactive panels, workshops, live demos, competitive challenges, attractive contests and so much more. All of them are constantly adapting to the changes around us.

The team is small, yet passionate and manages to create awesome experiences every year. They embrace change and adapt in order to keep the community together.
