More love for infosec defenders

Infosec defenders are a rare breed

Most security conferences focus on the offensive side of security. Recently O’Reilly decided to change things a bit and come with a conferenceĀ focused on defensive security. If you ask us, a great step to give defense a boost in attention. As O’Reilly is also focusing on open source, a perfect match with our audience.

Disclaimer: we have no affiliation with O’Reilly, their conference, or services. We promote them as they increase knowledge sharing.


The first upcoming conferences are:

  • New York: October 31st – November 2nd
  • Amsterdam: 9-11 November

If you have the chance to go: visit the conference, learn, and especially share your lessons. We need to keep sharing as much as possible, being defenders.
