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. 


To see what BSides means to the community, check out the page: What BSides Means to Me


Please send an email to [email protected] if you would like to organize a Security BSides event in a city which is not already on the map. We will schedule a conversation to explain the rules and guidelines, and answer questions. Resources are available to help you make the event a success. You can see a brief overview of the ethos and rules on the Guidelines page. 


Check out the Security BSides Groups and Social Media page to see more ways to keep up with Security BSides

BSides' 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 content 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 alternatives for speakers, topics, and events.

More BSides History can be found at our History Page


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 Site Maintainers 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 Security BSides events. The links in the event lists _must_ point to a properly formatted Security BSides page (see Using The BSides Wiki for details). If your country isn't listed, perhaps it's time for you to organize a BSides there!
