Pride Toronto & DEFCON Toronto 2019

Trace Labs is very excited to partner DEFCON Toronto in conjunction with Pride Toronto in 2019 to offer the second annual OSINT CTF for Missing Persons. Last year at this time, DEFCON Toronto was brave enough to partner with this unknown organization called Trace Labs and break new ground. The result of their willingness to open that door resulted in huge benefits to people around the world. DEFCON Toronto helped kick start Trace Labs in 2018 by having faith in our mission. A year later we are highly successful and helping hundreds of people. We are very pleased to return to where it all started and support DEFCON Toronto in 2019 through the same event which promises to be bigger than ever. If you live in the Toronto area, you don’t want to miss this event!

Details are still be worked for this event. Check back for exact dates, times and venue.

Defcon Australia DC011612 2018

DC11612 is an Australian based DEF CON group started in January 2018. It was formerly known as DC42. Meetups are sponsored by MercuryISS and are usually on the last Thursday bi monthly, with a turn up average of 25 members.

In Australia, around 38,000 people (both children and adults) are reported missing each year and at least 8 million children (doesn’t include adults) worldwide. With a relevance of social media, online accounts and general online presence; the first 8 hours of a missing person can be the most important in accelerating the reunification with their family.

For the next meetup, DC11612 will be partnering with Trace Labs; using OSINT tools and techniques to assist local law enforcement to help locate missing persons.Level
