BSides RGV 2020


COVID19 Update (03/25/2020):  The safety and well being of all of those who are part of this event are of great importance.  For this reason, we are evaluating a new event date for this year's BSidesRGV conference.  Once we have determined a new event date, we will make a formal announcement here and via our Twitter account (@bsidesrgv).




Information security and information technology professionals from both private and public sector organizations throughout the Rio Grande Valley are putting together a cybersecurity event for the community.  The event will be the 3rd Annual BSides RGV Cybersecurity Conference and will follow the well-known BSides community-driven framework.  In order to make this event a success, we need your help.  We are looking for presenters, sponsors, and also for volunteers for the event.  What makes a BSides different than any other cybersecurity event is that the goal is to create opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration.  We not only want to encourage the local cybersecurity community to attend, but also to submit a presentation proposal.  We know there is talent in our community‚Ķthis is a chance to share your knowledge with your peers.
