This year we are planning to have a minimum of two (2) tracks and additional space allocated for panels/discussions, podcasting/media, as well as new and exciting events/contents. Stay tuned for updates! 

If you have never attended and/or presented at a BSides conference you are in for a real treat. Whether you are new to speaking in front of crowds or consider yourself a veteran, BSides is a welcoming environment that provides an intimate setting to have casual conversations with your audience.

Throw away all of the unconformable feelings of being in front of a crowd, and get ready for active, fun, non-judgmental audience members who care to engage in conversation.

This year we are opening the CFP for a variety of topics/ideas:

  • Pioneers of the industry with fresh NEW topics of conversation
  • Education/Training on what you are most passionate about
  • Technology (wide open for your interpretation)
  • Panels - if you or a group of individuals would like to have a panel to discuss hot topics, please submit your ideas
  • Events - if you have ideas for events/contents, please submit them!
  • Whatever else you think its relative to InfoSec or BSides!
