Humble beginnings of ROOTCON

14.5.11 Posted by: ROOTCON


As a recap of our history, this group started as DEFCONPH (DEFCON Philippines) and launched on December 20, 2008 as an IT Security organization gathering the best minds in IT Security. The event took place at Handuraw Restaurant, Lahug, Cebu City, Philippines. After the said launching, series of events were organized in Manila.

Through the years it was later changed to www.pinoygreyhat.org and finally became www.rootcon.org. It all started as a community group but later on, the founder and its loyal goons decided to make it as an event and a community for Information Security enthusiasts.

One of the objectives of ROOTCON is to foster camaraderie and sharing of expertise through IT Security conferences and gatherings.
