Welcome to the March 2021 DCG 201 Meet Up…and our FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

Five. F%#king. Years.


We can’t believe we have made it this far. From our humble beginnings of our two Co-Founders winging it despite having three New Jersey groups fail before us, through three venue changes, multple website revisions, conventions, meet ups, hackathons and through a global pandemic.

It’s only through the amazing hacker community in New Jersey and our fans across the nation and around the world that keeps us going. That and too much Jolt! Cola, the Official Drink Of The Elite Hacker!

In celebration for you all, join us for our first ever HYBRID meet up of 2022 at our meet-up location in Jersey City that we miss dearly.

Hacking! Video Games! Raffles! Lockpicking! Soldering! Presentations! Voting! McDonalds!? Barcade! And a glimpes into the future of DCG 201 through 2022 and the NEXT five years!

Some activities, chats, talks, workshops and DCG 201 insanity will be broadcasted online via our LIVE STREAMS per the new normal!

ZAP Those Bugs! The OWASP Zed Attack Proxy

:..> The OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is one of the world’s most popular free security tools and is actively maintained by a dedicated international team of volunteers. It can help you automatically find security vulnerabilities in your web applications while you are developing and testing your applications. Join us with an interview with the ZAP Project Lead about this toolset and the future landscape of security in a COVID-Cold War internet!

:.>Bio: Simon Bennetts is the OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) Project Leader and a Distinguished Engineer at StackHawk, a company that uses ZAP to help users fix application security bugs before they hit production.
He has talked about and demonstrated ZAP at conferences all over the world, including Blackhat, JavaOne, FOSDEM and OWASP AppSec EU, USA & AsiaPac. Prior to making the move into security he was a developer for 25 years and strongly believes that you cannot build secure web applications without knowing how to attack them.

McDoxxalds: Hacking The Worlds Largest Fast Food Chain

:..> McDonald’s is the world’s largest restaurant chain by revenue, serving over 69 million customers daily in over 100 countries across 37,855 outlets, is the world’s second-largest private employer with 1.7 million employees and the ninth-highest global brand valuation as of 2018. And like with many large targets, it’s ripe to be hacked! Join our Co-Founder in this In-Person EXCLUSIVE talk as we take a deep dive into the McDonald’s tech ice burg as we find out why certain items are on the menu, why the ice cream machines are always broken (and how to fix them), how they trained employees using video games, how to become a Ronald McDonald clown and more!

Exclusive to this presentation is a look at a McDonald’s we have nicknamed “McDoxxalds” with pictures taken inside said restaurant that gives an hilarious glimpse into McDonald’s security operations; proving their recent ad campaign slogan: WE KEEP GETTING HACKED!

:.>Bio: A Co-Founder of DCG 201, an open group for hacker workshop projects in North East New Jersey, Sidepocket is constantly wanting to help people to get better at whatever they want to do and learn. He also has a history with NYC 2600, Radio Statler at Hackers on Planet Earth, Phone Losers of America, Museum of Urban Reclaim Spaces and The Yes Men.

Black Hat Webinar: Inside the Cyber Safety Review Board

:..>Ahead of the inaugural meeting of the new Cyber Safety Review Board (CSRB), join the Board’s Chair and Deputy Chair, Rob Silvers (DHS Undersecretary for Policy) and Heather Adkins (head of Security, Google), for an exclusive conversation with Jeff Moss. Rob and Heather will preview how the Board will approach its first review, which will focus on the vulnerabilities in the Log4j software library, and drive actionable recommendations to better protect the nation’s networks and infrastructure.

Established through President Biden’s Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity, the CSRB is an unprecedented public-private initiative that will bring together government and industry leaders. Members will take a deep dive into the most significant cybersecurity incidents, conduct after action analysis, and identify lessons learned. The CSRB does not have regulatory powers and is not an enforcement authority. Its purpose is to identify and share lessons learned to enable advances in national cybersecurity.

:.>Bio: Jeff Moss, also known as Dark Tangent, is an American hacker, computer and internet security expert who founded the Black Hat and DEF CON computer security conferences. In April 2011 Mr. Moss was appointed as the Chief Security Officer for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a non-profit whose responsibilities include coordinating and ensuring the security, stability and resiliency of the Internet’s unique global identifiers as well as maintaining the root zone of the Internet.

Mr. Robert Silvers serves as the Under Secretary for Policy at the Department of Homeland Security, and will serve as the inaugural Chair of the Cyber Safety Review Board. He is responsible for driving policy and implementation plans across all of DHS’s missions, including counterterrorism; cybersecurity, infrastructure security, and resilience; border security and immigration; international affairs; and trade and economic security.

Heather Adkins will serve as Deputy Chair of the Cyber Safety Review Board. She is a 19-year Google veteran and founding member of the Google Security Team. As Sr Director of Information Security, she has built a global team responsible for maintaining the safety and security of Google’s networks, systems and applications. She has an extensive background in practical security and has worked to build and secure some of the world’s largest infrastructure.


DCG 201 Hacker Show & Tell

:..>Before our lightning talks and during the After Dark Party, DCG 201 members will be given an opportunity to show off the various projects that they have been working on. You can join in any time as we chat and some things we might be showing off for the first time!

Five Year Anniversary Hacker Raffle

:..> Every hacker who shows up in person will get one raffle ticket. After our Lightning Talks we will draw a ticket for someone to win various cool hacker prizes! One prize per winner, no double winners so everyone has a fair chance of getting some cool sh!t.

DCG 201 Vote: What IRC Instance Should We Move To?

:..> If you have been living under a rock lately, we regret to inform you that Freenode imploded under it’s own arrogance and stupidity leading to a mass exodus of IRC Channels. Since we use to host under Freenode, we plan on moving the #DEFCON201 IRC Channel to another IRC Server. We your help in us voting in a new one. The options are:


We want to hear your opinions in person and you can help online by voting on our active poll on our Twitch Channel!

Practicing Lockpicking & Locksport

:..>DEFCON 201 will have padlocks and professional practice tumblers provided by TOOOL to practice on. Fun and easy to learn for all ages and backgrounds with two expert instructors! We will also have sanitation and social distancing rules in place due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic.

:..>What To Bring: All lockpicking tools and practice locks will be provided. You are free to bring any lock you own that you DON’T RELY ON or any lockpicking tools and bypasses to the space. If you decide to bring something, we have a mandatory sanitation on site of the tool/lock you bring before it’s allowed to be interacted with.

Raspberry Pi Arcade Games & What The Dub?!

:..>In addition to various classic retro games running on Raspberry Pi, we will try to play a couple of rounds of our new favorite community game What The Dub? What The Dub?! is a multiplayer party game where each player overdubs missing dialogue from hilariously awful B-movies, woefully outdated PSAs, and bizarre industrial films, with their own witty (or just plain stupid) dubs. Players watch the dubs and vote on the best one. The player with the highest score at the end of the game wins!

:..>What To Bring: Any Smartphone, Laptop or device with a modern browser, preferably Firefox or Chrome.

#BadgeLife for DEF CON 30 Hackathon

:..>DEF CON 30 will take place August 11th through August 14th at Caesars Fourm and other various hotels in Las Vegas, Nevada. This year will be the year where we are going to attempt to create our own badges for our members can rep DCG 201 at the convention! Join us In-Person only to talk some ideas and set up future meet ups to work on our first ever entry for #BadgeLife!
