x33fcon is a nice & small conference in Poland, Gdynia near to Gdansk.
“Welcome to x33fcon, a new gathering for IT security professionals and enthusiasts. It’s a new event where blue and red teams meet to exchange views and ideas, share experiences, and discuss the latest security challenges in the industry.”
The ticket price is low (also if you plan to travel there privately), the content was really professional and interesting, a bit more than someone might expect when you see the size of the con. Kudos to the organizers for getting so many interesting speakers and talks. Besides the talks there is also a CTF and workshops, after the conference trainings take place. There is also some great food for lunch, in the breakes there is coffee and small snacks. The breakes are long, so you have some time to talk with speakers and other folks around. Seems to be that ATT&CK is the hot topic currently, at x33fcon alone they had three talks about that.
From my point of view as a Red Teamer some more talks about breaking stuff on exploitation level would have been great. x33fcon is a great conference, the only critics from my side is that the attendees are being filmed in every talk from any perspective possible. At other conferences they ask when making photos or filming, maybe that might be an idea when not filming the whole audience.
Besides the conference Gdynia, Gdansk and the beaches around are really nice:
Conclusion: Highly recommended.
