The Social-Engineer team is collectively wrapping up their annual post-DEF CON foggy state, unburying from their backlog, and reminiscing on the amazingness that was the SEVillage at DEF CON 26. Can we say “WOW?” This was the SEVillage’s biggest (and arguably best) year yet and, though it has taken a full two weeks to overcome […]
