DerbyCon is a computer security conference based in Louisville, Kentucky.[1] The first DerbyCon took place in 2011 and was founded by Martin Bos, Dave Kennedy, Alex Kah and Adrian Crenshaw.[2] The conference has been held at the Hyatt Regency Louisville typically in late September.

On January 14, 2019, organizers announced that DerbyCon 9.0, to be held in September 2019, would be the last of the series, citing the increasing difficulty of holding conferences in the face of "a small, yet vocal group of people creating negativity, polarization, and disruption".[3]
