The NCC Group Security Open Forum is an informal and open venue for the discussion and presentation of security related research and tools, and an opportunity for security researchers from all fields to get together and share work and ideas.
The Forum meets quarterly in the Bay Area, Seattle, Austin, and New York City (and now Houston). Forum agendas are crafted with the specific needs/interests of its members in mind and consist of brief 20-30 minute talks. Talks are not product pitches or strongly vendor preferential.
Attendance is by invite only and is limited to engineers and technical managers. Any area of security is welcome including reversing, secure development, new techniques or tools, application security, cryptography, etc.
