Hack
Create and cultivate opportunities within the information security community for hackers and professionals to learn and grow their technical skills and knowledge.


Share
Build a group of like-minded individuals focused on building each other up and creating a healthy environment that promotes learning and creativity.


Include
Be the bridge between people just starting out in Information Security and the talented leaders in the industry.


Grow
Assist IT professionals with finding jobs that match their skill level and also provides opportunities to learn new skills and grow careers.

That's a really fancy way of saying we love hackers and the infosec community.

We organize community events in the Greater Los Angeles area that focus on hacking, information security, and bringing like-minded people together to create cool stuff. We are currently in the planning stages for ShellCon 2018. Interested in helping out or sponsoring? Check out our contact page.

Annual Conference
Our yearly conference is a growing event that is focused on creating an atmosphere of open communication, collaboration, and connection. We value community, technical knowledge, and getting your hands dirty. We want you to walk away from ShellCon with an itch to try what you just learned and the knowledge to do so. Presentations and events at the con will have a focus on practicality and real world use.

RaiseMe
We are interested in helping professionals attain their goals for careers and learning. RaiseMe is an effort to help people improve resumes and interview skills and connect them with hiring managers at companies that are in need to talented individuals.

Quarterly Workshops
We are expanding our focus to include training events throughout the year so that we can continue to connect with individuals who want to develop beginning through advanced skills in red and blue team roles.
