HammerCon is the national convention of the Military Cyber Professionals Association (MCPA) and serves as the premier gathering of/by/for the American military cyber community.
More than another event with a bunch of speakers, this is truly an experience. Check out photos, videos, and other archival information about our inaugural 2022 convention here.
HammerCon 2.0 is scheduled for Thursday 18 May at the CapTech campus in Laurel! Registration opens at 0800, opening ceremony kickoff at 0845, lunch at 1200, closing ceremony at 1630, and post-event ice cream social with live music at 1700.
The theme for our 2023 HammerCon was
"Understanding our PAST to succeed in the PRESENT and shape the FUTURE"
Past - Present - Future
All pre-registered attendees were also invited to the pre-HammerCon Social at DreamPort. There are no other official/authorized HammerCon pre-parties or after-parties.
