BlueRidgeCon was founded by several members of the DEF CON 828 (DC828) information security group who wanted to collaborate with other industry pros, students, and enthusiasts to share thoughts and ideas, while also creating a sense of community and fostering stewardship for the next generation of InfoSec practitioners in Western North Carolina. Our goal is to attract well-known subject matter experts from across the nation for an intimate, high-quality conference in a gorgeous mountain setting. BlueRidgeCon 2018 will be held on Saturday, May 19th at the Hilton Asheville Biltmore Park Hotel in Asheville, NC. Along with our Main Speaker Track, we’ll have a Capture The Flag Competition, Social Engineering Village, and Career Strategy and Resume Workshops.
