Code of Conduct

DEF CON 402 provides a forum for open discussion between participants, where radical viewpoints are welcome and a high degree of skepticism is expected. However, insulting or harassing other participants is unacceptable. We want DEF CON 402 to be a safe and productive environment for everyone. It's not about what you look like but what's in your mind and how you present yourself that counts at DEF CON 402.

We do not condone harassment against any participant, for any reason. Harassment includes deliberate intimidation and targeting individuals in a manner that makes them feel uncomfortable, unwelcome, or afraid.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. We reserve the right to respond to harassment in the manner we deem appropriate, including but not limited to expulsion and referral to the relevant authorities.

This Code of Conduct applies to everyone participating at DEF CON 402 - from attendees, speakers, press, guests, and board members.

Anyone can report harassment. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, you can contact a DEF CON 402 board member or message

DEF CON 402 board members will be happy to help participants contact security, local law enforcement, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of DEF CON 402 meetings.

Remember: The meeting is what you make of it, and as a community we can create a great experience for everyone.
