FULLERTON, Calif., Aug. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Milton Security and Cyber Defense Technologies are proudly announcing today that the second VETCON gathering is being held August 9, 2019.


VETCON was started in 2018 by Milton Security and Cyber Defense Technologies. Both companies are led by CEOs who are Veterans (USCG and USMC) that have a passion for helping Veterans.  Both CEOs saw that in the Cyber Security industry that there were support groups and events for everything, but fellow Veterans.  In addition, Milton Security and Cyber Defense Technologies have had a Hire Veterans First program at both of their firms since their founding.  Veterans are highly skilled, well-trained and a tight knit enclave within the hacker community.

In 2018, these two veterans decided they wanted to throw a party and meetup for their hacker/veteran buddies and with the help of DEFCON organizers who provided space, VETCON was born.

In the past year, VETCON has held 3 events; DEFCON 26, Michter’s Distillery in Kentucky, and InfoWarCon.  At these events Veterans are able to meet and connect with others in the Cyber Security industry, network, and gain valuable knowledge to help in their careers. 

This year at DEFCON will be bigger than 2018.  There is no extra charge to come to VETCON if you already are attending DEFCON.

VETCON announced their “Orders” last week for the conference on their website :
