BLUE TEAM VILLAGE (BTV)
Welcome to the other side of the hacking mirror. Blue Team Village (our friends just call us BTV) is both a place and a community built for and by defenders. It's a place to gather, talk, share, and learn from each other about the latest tools, technologies, and tactics that our community can use to detect attackers and prevent them from achieving their goals.
BTV packs more fun and learning into three days than any defender can possibly fit in. If you like to compete in CTFs, we have two: This year we are again hosting the uniquely blue Network Defense OpenSOC CTF, and we’ve also added the equally creative BiaSciLab's Bia Hak Lab CTF. Maybe you just want to hang out in the Village with like minded defenders. Maybe you prefer to learn from over a dozen defender focused talks, or get hands-on training in a half dozen defender workshops. Maybe you'll want to buy the insanely cool BTV badge that gives you access to our underground networking, threat intel meet-up, and party at Blue Team Village After Dark (BTVAD). We're not gonna say if there will be live entertainment, but who knows? We guess you'll have to see that for yourself. Oh... Did we mention that the BTV badge is a hackable platform based on the Pi Zero W and that it will have WiFi AP mode, badge to badge comms, and various honeypots?
BTV promises to be an all out firehose of Blue Team learning, sharing, and fun for the defenders that build stuff, defend stuff, and just make it generally hard for attackers. Come celebrate the other side of the hacking mirror with us. We'll keep a blue light on for you!
