DefCamp2015 Raffle


November 19th and November 20th…DefCamp 2015…

I know some of you have these dates marked in your calendar…who wouldn’t?

Maybe because it’s the most important conference on Hacking & Information Security in Central Eastern Europe, bringing hands-on talks about the latest research and practices from the INFOSEC field, gathering under the same roof security specialists, entrepreneurs and developers, managers from both private and public sector?

Or maybe you have the chance to meet over 700 security specialists, company decision makers, public & educational sector representatives, developers and students under the same roof, eager to share and get security aware?

Or maybe because DefCamp believes in community, connections and information sharing and they’re waiting for you at the 6th edition in the Main Networking Lounge where you can meet & talk with participants, speakers, companies & partners?

Oh! I know! You want to take a break and test your experience & knowledge! No problem! Competitions like Target John, Hack the Machine and Hack the Bank will stretch your knowledge in various fields such as pentest, forensics, SE, WebSec and more.

Whatever the reason, I know you want a ticket…hell…everyone wants a ticket to DefCamp 2015! 🙂

  1. I’ve sent the motivation through the raffle too, but I’ll leave a comment here too just to make sure someone gets it. (this one will be in english)

    Why do I want to DefCamp 2015?
    My main reason is not because I am passionate about cyber-security, but because I want to get to know the people whose posts I’ve been reading and that taught me so many things (I’ve been a RST member for more than 5 years now, but I’m not referring just to people from RST) and I want to meet the people that sit behind the keyboard.
    Furthermore, I am student – which means the money it’s a bit tight and I can’t afford to buy the ticket myself. Luckily, I have plenty of ‘zacusca’ (for english readers – you should really try this romanian délicatesse!)

    Thanks – I hope to see you there!

    • Hi Andrew!

      Thank you for you participation in this event and i wish you good luck! ^_^

      If you are drawn as one of the 3 lucky winners we’ll have a chance to chat @ DefCamp2015!! ^_^
