DefCamp started in 2011 as a small meeting among a group of online friends that were willing to share their knowledge in IT security. Now, at the 9th edition you can connect and learn with top-tier security specialists, entrepreneurs, researchers and scientists in Bucharest. The overall DefCamp experience includes inspirational speeches, interactive panels, workshops, live demos, competitive challenges, attractive contests and so much more.

Alexandru Basalic is a Security Analyst, developer and he has also been an organizer of DefCamp since 2011. He got involved with DefCamp in order to build and grow a community in the InfoSec area in a country that has the most gifted IT people (oh, and the fastest internet speed). He believes that organizing the DefCamp Conference is always a fun challenge – from accommodation to food, from stickers to sound and from design to wine there is always something new arising at every step. He is also in charge of the Target John competition, a race to find an important man, hiding behind a virtual account, by going in a real detective hunt for clues on how to reach that goal. He always thought a true hacker should have some real social engineering, dumpster diving and lock picking skills to be complete.
