AvengerCon is a free hacker event held every fall to benefit the hackers of the U.S. Cyber Command community, and is supported by the U.S. Army 780th Military Intelligence Brigade. The event is open to all employees of U.S. Cyber Command, in addition to any Department of Defense personnel with interest in cyberspace operations. AvengerCon features presentations from people both internal and external to Cyber Command, hacker villages, training workshops, and much more. See the Events page for a full list of this year’s featured events as they’re announced!

Eligible Attendees

All interested members of the U.S. Cyber Command community, and any broader Department of Defense organizations with personnel working operations in cyberspace operations (this is left intentionally broad - if you are unsure if this means you, please reach out here and ask).

Personnel will be asked to show a Common Access Card (CAC) to gain entrance to the event. If you do not have a CAC, or are a member of an organization external to U.S. Cyber Command or the Department of Defense, please reach out to the event organizers on our Contact page with a description of your organization’s role so that we can evaluate and add you to our registration list.
