Blue Team Con 2020
June 20, 2020 - June 21, 2020
While traveling around the country to various conferences, through a mix of observation, participation, and attendance of many talks it became quite clear a gap within the information security industry currently exists. When it comes to these industry standard conferences and gatherings, the information sharing network for red team and offense research and activities was very mature while those for blue team and defense are lacking. There are a multitude of industry standard offerings ranging from small regional meetups to the much larger well-known conferences held at summer camp in Las Vegas. These information-sharing networks benefit all teams encompassed within information security but are limited in how much they can benefit defenders of the enterprise. This realization made evident a strong need for a conference specific to blue teams and defense to kickstart the maturation process of information-sharing on this side of the house. Enter Blue Team Con.
Blue Team Con 2020 Keynote
The goal of Blue Team Con is to have talks that are almost exclusively focused on sharing information amongst defenders and protectors of organizations. This can span from SOC Analysts through CISOs and across the aisle to auditors and compliance personnel and application developers focusing on security. There are many professionals hard at work struggling to keep up with the vast amount of information in the cybersecurity space. Our goal is to help organize that information in a fun and collaborative way while offering a platform for those that have figured it out to share their knowledge.
The conference audience will include students, professionals, executives, and sales personnel from all over the United States and potentially beyond. We limit the amount of each of these categories of attendees to ensure this conference contains actual information security practitioners that need to benefit from the knowledge-transfer contained within.Tags: 2020 event us
