# x33fcon 2020 (4th edition)
When and Where
Conference: September 14-15, 2020, Gdynia, Poland
Training: September 9-11 and September 16-18, 2020, Gdynia, Poland
Yet another security con? **Nope.**
The idea behind **[x33fcon](https://www.x33fcon.com)** (pronounced /ˈziːf-kɒn/) is to focus on a very specific need of the security industry: **collaboration between blue and red teams** (sometimes referred to as purple teaming). We know from our professional experience how hard it can be to build a solid bridge between those who assess security and those who guard the castle. Many misconceptions and misunderstandings arise between these two groups.
We want to change that. Rather than continue to think about security from either an offensive or defensive perspective, our goal is to encourage security professionals to consider both perspectives while working more closely together. Both blue and red teams provide unique capabilities to an organization, but the collaboration between the two yields the best results.
**[x33fcon](https://www.x33fcon.com)** is an event that brings both groups together, and everyone from both sides of the fence are invited to gather, share ideas and discuss thoughts on security.
Who Should Attend
Topics planned for this conference are important for any IT security personnel, especially **red teamers, pentesters, incident responders, analysts, and researchers**. The conference will include high-level talks on team collaboration, case studies, and deep-dives into attack and defense techniques.
It's a great opportunity to meet other blue and red team members, learn from their experiences and understand how attackers and defenders think and behave.
Are you responsible for security? **Don't miss out!** Come along and help define what's possible.
We are a group of security enthusiasts with many years of experience in both the offensive and defensive arena. We have worked for small companies and large multi-national corporations around the world. Our experience spans all major sectors of business including **Finance, Healthcare, Energy and Aviation**.
We have also contributed to, and presented at, many security events: **Security BSides Warsaw, NoVA Hackers, Tech.3camp Gdansk, HackInParis, Geek Girls Carrots**, and lectures at **Gdansk University of Technology**.
Security professionals in offensive and defensive roles should collaborate with each other - more often and more effectively. That's the main thrust behind the creation of **[x33fcon](https://www.x33fcon.com)**; to provide a forum to boost this collaboration.
