Beginning November 2022, only events which report their dates to info@securitybsides.org will be listed here and on the calendar.

 

BSides was built and has grown over conversations on Twitter, but times are changing.

Where's the padlock? About the wiki and HTTPS:  Logins are encrypted, but PBWorks does not support HTTPS on custom domains. We want to move to a new platform, but BSides is a volunteer run organization and migration will be a significant undertaking. If you would like to volunteer to lead the migration project, please contact info@securitybsides.org

 

As of December 2022, there have been 800 BSides events around the world, hosted in 208 cities spanning 60 countries.
Through all of those events we have heard many success stories, talks given, projects launched, friendships made, careers accelerated, and much more.
Several years ago, we gathered comments for the “What BSides Means to Me” page on the wiki (http://www.securitybsides.com/w/page/87930010/What%20BSides%20Means), now I would like to hear your BSides success stories and share them with the world.


Please send your BSides success stories to jack@securitybsides.org and we will add them to the new BSides stories page.
We can’t wait to hear your BSides stories.

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 info@securitybsides.org 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.

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.

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!
