DEF CON 28 Hacking Conference

Press Registration

Press Registration

Welcome to DEF CON Safe Mode!

There is no press registration for DEF CON this year. The event is free & open to the public on our Discord server.

As you know, DEF CON is temporarily moving from the Las Vegas Strip to Discord for our 28th annual event. We hope the digital format encourages more people around the world to engage with the content and each other from the comfort and safety of their homes. Use #defconsafemode to join the conversation on Twitter. If you’re new to Discord, this video is a great primer.

If you are interested in connecting with a speaker for an interview the best process is to reach out to them directly to schedule. Most of them list their Twitter handle on the DEF CON schedule.

Our Press volunteers are available for non-emergencies from 6am to 6pm PST Friday-Sunday.

You can always reach our team with questions by emailing press [at] defcon [dot] org.

After Aug 6, you may join the DEF CON Discord server & contact our team via direct message or by using the dedicated press bot command.
