Welcome to the Security BSides Community Wiki

 

What is BSides?

Each BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by information security community members.  The goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time.  It creates opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. It is where conversations for the next-big-thing are happening.

BSides's History

 

BSides was born out of number of rejections to the CFP for Black Hat USA 2009.  A number of quality speakers were rejected, not due to lack of quality but lack of space and time.  Any constrained system must operate within the bounds to which it has defined itself.  Conferences constrain themselves to the eight hours a day for however many days they run.  Our goal is to provide people with options by removing those barriers and providing more options for speakers, topics, and events.

 

Much like Noisebridge, and other hacker spaces, we are a do-acracy; in other words, if you want it, then you do to it or make it happen.  We do not have members, but rather participants.  You are the "we" and we can only be successful if you make that happen for yourself.

 

Anti-spam policy

 

It makes us all sad, but pointers to external pages from the front page will most likely be deleted without notice. Otherwise the page fills up rapidly with difficult-to-detect spam. Since version 2.0 of PBWiki, users can be authorized as 'Writers' or 'Readers'. By default, new users are authorized as 'Writers', accounts conducting inadequate operations will be turned into 'Readers' as a safety precaution. If the change appears unjustified, please contact  the SiteMaintainers to restore the normal rights for the corresponding account.

 

Past, Present, and Future BSides Events

Note: THIS list right here is the 'definitive list' of upcoming SecurityBSides events. The links in the event lists _must_ point to a properly formatted SecurityBSides page (see UsingTheBSidesWiki for details). If your country isn't listed, perhaps it's time for you to organize a BSides there!
