sec4dev – the security Conference & Bootcamp for developers. Let's make security a first-class citizen in software development!
The sec4dev Conference & Bootcamp is a Vienna-based security event which targets one very specific group: people involved in software development. It is our mission to bring together the best industry professionals, thus having a sustainable and positive impact on the software security landscape.

We focus on practical, applicable, hands-on, and security-related contents for folks involved in software development. Apart from technical aspects, sec4dev also covers organizational, legal, and process-related topics in order to reach one goal: making security a first-class citizen in the world of software development.
SBA Research is a research and consulting center for Information Security based in Vienna, and calls itself a “Home of Nerds”.
We thus have started hosting Meetups spotlighting all aspects of Security in 2018. By doing so we intend to establish and foster a community of people interested in IT & Information Security and related areas.
The conference was packed with lots of practical know-how, was excellently organised and valuable for networking. Question and answer sessions offered the possibility to take home answers for real work-problems. Speakers were experts in their field. I personally attended the conference in 2019 as a winner of the Diversity Grant. Diversity has a positive effect and this also applies to development & security. @Sec4Dev thanks for this great & important initiative to support women to attend this conference.
Since the beginning, our developers are annual visitors of the conference. Besides being well organized, the event covers a wide range of various security topics and offers a great opportunity to widen your knowledge. We are already looking forward to the next time.
