EFF at Las Vegas Hacker Summer Camp

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The EFF team is pleased to return to the Las Vegas hacker summer camp conferences—BSidesLV, Black Hat USA and DEF CON 31—to rally behind computer security researchers and tinkerers. This entire week of events is a meaningful opportunity to reconnect with the infosec and hacker community, who are crucial to building privacy and safety on the web for everyone. Below we’ve rounded up all of EFF’s scheduled talks and activities at the conferences.

As in past years, EFF staff attorneys will be present to help support speakers and attendees. If you have legal concerns regarding an upcoming talk or sensitive infosec research that you are conducting at any time, please email [email protected]. Outline the basic issues and we will do our best to connect you with the resources you need. Read more about EFF’s work defending, offering legal counsel, and publicly advocating for technologists on our Coders’ Rights Project page.

EFF staff members will be on hand in the expo areas of all three conferences. You may encounter us in the wild elsewhere, but we hope you stop by the EFF tables talk to us about the latest in online rights, get on our action alert list, or donate to become an EFF member. We’ll also have our limited-edition DEF CON 31 shirts available! These shirts have a puzzle incorporated into the design. Try your hand at cracking it!
