- DEF CON 31 – August 10-13, 2023 – Las Vegas, NV, USA
Blue Team Village @ DEF CON 31
Welcome to the other side of the hacking mirror. Blue Team Village (BTV) is both a place and a community built for and by people who defend computer systems, networks, and people against cyber-attacks. It’s a place to gather, talk, share, and learn from each other about the latest tools, technologies, and tactics that our community can use to detect attackers and prevent them from achieving their goals.
Project Obsidian – BTV’s Home-Grown Content
The Blue Team Village’s Project Obsidian is an immersive, defensive cybersecurity learning experience that provides attendees with the opportunity to gain knowledge of Incident Response (IR), Digital Forensics (DF), Malware Analysis, Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI), and Cyber Threat Hunting (CTH). Deep dive into technical topics through workshops and labs that provide practical hands-on experience across each discipline. Project Obsidian courses and workshops provide cybersecurity training that will enable attendees to develop skills needed to be successful in their current and/or future role.
Two of the most valuable takeaways are how to strategically approach a task and the operational processes that support the objectives behind each task. Knowing ‘how’ to do something is only part of the challenge. Knowing ‘when’ and ‘why’ to perform certain tasks adds necessary context to develop the full story of defensive cybersecurity operations.
Workshops will take place throughout the year and are free of charge. Join the Blue Team Village Discord server for updates, discord.gg/blueteamvillage
