What we're about
We are DC828, Asheville's DEF CON Group. The DEF CON Groups were spawned from the annual DEF CON security conference in Las Vegas. The DEF CON Groups are a gathering point for folks interested in alternate applications of modern technology. Our meetings are open to anyone, regardless of their skill, age, job, gender, etc. Meetings are designed to help you learn new things, meet new people, mentor others in your areas of strength, and provide cohesion within the Information Security (InfoSec) community.
Meeting topics include InfoSec policy and law, ethical hacking / penetration testing, secure software development, network security, digital forensics, incident response, open source intelligence, cryptography, exploit development, malware analysis, social engineering, vulnerability assessment, InfoSec certifications, Capture The Flag (CTF) events, and more.
We meet on the first Saturday of every month at 2:00 PM in the community room of Earth Fare Market & Cafe in South Asheville (outside food and drink prohibited). Come join us!
