DerbyCon 8.0 – Evolution

October 3, 2018 @ 8:00 am - October 7, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

This year, DerbyCon 8.0’s theme is “Evolution”. We picked evolution partially because of DerbyCon evolving (changing) and moving to a new venue (the Marriott) but also (and primarily) because of the evolution of the information security industry and how it is always changing and our desire to try to make it better. Evolution to us, is simply and exactly how it is defined: the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form. The information security space started from something simple, and is becoming more and more complex each and everyday. How we handle the complexities and tackle situations is all apart of how we grow as an industry, and DerbyCon is a place where anyone ranging from individuals who are just getting interested in INFOSEC or someone who is already seasoned in information security can experience it. DerbyCon is a place where anyone and everyone is welcome. A place to share ideas and experiences, collaborate between one another, meet new people, and most importantly have fun. Welcome to DerbyCon 8.0.

DerbyCon is an information security conference located in the heart of downtown Louisville, Kentucky. It is the largest southern information security conference. The goal of DerbyCon is to tailor to all demographics of information security and put on one heck of a show.

The idea of DerbyCon started in a pizza shop in Louisville after a few of us thought how awesome it would be to create a conference in Louisville Kentucky. The 4th street live area was awesome and we had been to so many conferences that we felt we could make one where everyone was welcome. DerbyCon has and continues to be a conference put together and run by awesome people in the security industry and by its attendees. We believe that DerbyCon is a central location for everyone to come share their research – hang with friends – and meet new ones. We hope to see you this year.
