ABOUT US

Over our past five years, the Biohacking Village, a 501(c)3 organization, has built credibility across the healthcare community, established a safe space for difficult discussions, and supported researchers as they innovate. We pivoted to an entirely virtual event with just six weeks notice last year for our largest event, DEF CON, and were rewarded with more online viewers, more CTF completions, more diversity and representation in our speakers and participants, and increased engagement in the conversations that matter most – what our industry needs from its workforce, from security, and how to achieve it.

 

Over our next five years, the Biohacking Village is uniquely poised to inform global conversations on citizen science, DIY Bio, and healthcare cybersecurity research. We leveraged the online opportunities of 2020 to join colleagues around the world to bring new audiences the stories of success and incident prevention from biohackers while also exploring the Internet of Ingestible Things and other rising research communities. In response to industry demand, we have embarked on a curriculum development effort to make a credential available for professionals in our field, developed new networking and recruitment approaches, launched partnerships with tools for device reporting, and, most importantly, worked with our members and sponsors to build the simulation laboratory for cybersecurity in biomedical devices that allows for the safe exploration of our global vulnerabilities.

We invite you to join us.
