HARRISON, N.Y., Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MGT Capital Investments, Inc. (NYSE MKT: MGT) today announced that representatives of its management team will be presenting at DEF CON 24 in Las Vegas on Thursday, August 4 - 7, 2016. MGT Capital will also celebrate the release of Demonsaw 3.0 on Friday, August 5th, 2016.
"DEF CON is the premier hacker convention in the world. Once every year the greatest hacking, programming, and maker minds come together for four days of camaraderie, competition, and an open willingness to share information. All ages attend DEF CON, bringing together a unique and timeless blend of creativity, curiosity and free and open dialogue about the subjects that matter most to us. There is no judgment, and very few rules. It is within these walls that issues like privacy, warrantless wiretapping, personal liberties, and freedom of digital expression are discussed. Some of the greatest minds living today will wander the halls of this convention, some dressed in shorts and a t-shirt and others in business casual. But make no mistake, we are all here to learn," stated Eric "Eijah" Anderson, founder of Demonsaw and proposed Chief Technology Officer of MGT Capital.
"MGT represents the future of cyber-security as much as the DEF CON audience. We are taking the lead and are forever in the debt of the staff, volunteers, and "Goons" at DEF CON for uniting such an incredible group of thinkers and tinkerers. We invite you all to an exclusive Demonsaw 3.0 event that will welcome the best and brightest of the DEF CON community to an evening of celebration," concluded Eijah.
To register for Eric "Eijah" Anderson's Thursday workshops, DEF CON participants should arrive at the 3rd floor of the Bally's Jubilee Tower to register on site. Workshops will begin at 10:00 a.m. in the Las Vegas Ballrooms 1-7. For further details and to register for the Demonsaw 3.0 celebration, attendees can visit: https://demonsaw.splashthat.com/
