  • Def Con 27 Transparency Report

    As many of you know, DEF CON has been publishing a Transparency Report at the end of the conference since DC25. It's our hope that by keeping public track of conference incidents we can encourage other conventions to share their own reporting and together we can shed some light on the challenges of creating safer and more inclusive events.
