About the Community

DEFCON GROUP - CHANDIGARH was started in August 2020 by Shivani (@Girlx_007) along with a bunch of Cyber Security Enthuisasts/ Researchers and Professionals. DEFCON 91172 is official name given according to Geo Location System (India - 91 & Chandigarh - 172) which is official DEFCON Group of Chandigarh.

DEFCON Groups were spawned from the annual DEF CON security conference in Las Vegas. The DEFCON Groups (DCGs or DC-Groups) are a gathering point for folks interested in the alternate applications of modern technology, referred to properly as 'hacking'. DCGs are not intended to compete with any other computer groups or communities, but rather to provide yet another gathering place for the discussion of technology and cyber security topics.

We conduct sessions, webinars, and contests like CTF and Hackathons. DEFCON Group meetings are open to anyone, regardless of their skill, age, job, gender, etc. DCGs are designed to help you learn new things, meet new people, mentor others in areas you may be strong in, and provide some cohesion within the hacker culture and it's members. We have amazing Community Partners like GDG Jalandhar, DSC-CU, CybSec, and many more...

DEFCON 91172 is not only for Cyber Security Enthuisasts, but it is also for Developers, Engineers, Researchers, and who so ever wants to learn and grow. Main motive of this community is to collabrate with great minds for something better.
