Our Goal

Our goal is to create an open conference that welcomes all people who are interested in cybersecurity, want to exchange knowledge and learn with each other. We want to get rid of gatekeeping in the industry and help each other grow.

By lowering and removing barriers to the cybersecurity field and creating the space for people to enjoy diving deeper into cybersecurity from wherever they are, we aim to encourage a more diverse audience to make more secure decisions when building products as well as for their personal security. It can also present them career options they might not have considered before.

Our Core Values

Cybersecurity for all: We see cybersecurity as a broad topic that’s everyone’s responsibility. You don’t need to be a security expert or have a CVE in your name. If you’re interested in learning together by actively participating in the event, you are welcome.

Inclusion: We strive to foster an environment where all participants, with their diverse identities and backgrounds, are welcome and can safely offer their multifaceted perspectives on cybersecurity.

Community-driven: This conference is from the community for the community. It’s a non-commercial, low-cost event, intended to make it more accessible to a wider audience.

How Our Values Shape The Conference

People-led and people-centered interactions: The event is run as an Open Space. A space that’s co-created by participants and open for all kinds of sessions. There will be hands-on workshops and labs, topic discussion, interactive experience exchanges, “bring your own problem”-style slots, and many more.

Serendipitous insights and up-to-date learnings: With a diverse group of people from different backgrounds and areas of expertise, you never know what new insights or knowledge you might stumble upon. The focus on participant-led sessions ensures that the topics discussed are timely and relevant, providing you with the most current trends and developments in the field of cybersecurity.

Having a good time, on your own terms: As this event is on-site, you can shape your time however you want it to be and make it beneficial and enjoyable for you! Whether you propose and participate in sessions back to back, whether you are eager to geek out about security every free second, or whether you just want to retreat to your room, to nature or somewhere else and recharge your batteries. It might be that you’re up for socializing or playing board games in the evenings, or you’re an early bird starting your days with yoga, meditation or a run - there’s an opportunity for everything!
