DefCamp is coming to Cluj-Napoca!
Dates: May 16th-17th





About DefCamp

DefCamp started back in 2011 as a small infosec gathering among friends. Soon, the meetup became an event and, later on, the largest and most important cybersecurity and hacking conference from Central and Eastern Europe. 

We are here so let’s Learn. Practice. Grow. Connect with the infosec community. 

DefCamp Cluj, a spin-off of the renowned DefCamp Bucharest, is set to host its first edition in 2024, marking a significant milestone in the cybersecurity landscape of Central and Eastern Europe. Designed to be the premier gathering for the vast cybersecurity and hacking professionals community, this conference aims to enrich the information security sector significantly.

Tailored to cater to a wide audience range, from curious students eager to explore the realms of cybersecurity to seasoned professionals with extensive experience, DefCamp Cluj promises engaging and comprehensive expertise. Attendees can look forward to diverse topics covering all facets of hacking, security, and the dynamics of red and blue team operations.
