Out of all of the security events that we list on our site – you can search them here – BSides are one of the more popular franchise events that folk search for.
Each BSides is a peer framework for creating events for and by members of the information security field.
The idea is to broaden the scope of discussion beyond the usual boundaries of space and time. It provides an opportunity for people to both presents and engage in a small group setting that stimulates cooperation. It is a fast-paced program involving discussions, demonstrations, and participant involvement. It is the location of the next-big-thing discussions.
Security BSides (often abbreviated as BSides) is a loosely associated series of information security conferences. Mike Dahn, Jack Daniel, and Chris Nickerson co-founded it in 2009. Because there were so many presentation submissions at Black Hat USA in 2009, the rejected presentations were delivered to a smaller group of people. The conference structure grew over time and was provided to allow anyone to organize their own BSides gatherings.
Structured, unconference and hybrid events are the three types of events. A Structured event follows the typical conference paradigm and is frequently held in conjunction with major conferences such as Black Hat, RSA, and others. Attendees usually mix and attend one or more events. Prior to the commencement of the conference, talks are submitted to the local event, selected, and scheduled. The Unconference event format is entirely decided by the attendees. Attendees arrive at a fixed time, debate ideas, and cooperatively agree on the plan for that day. The talks that receive the greatest attention and discussion are added to the program.
Most BSides events are two-day yearly discussions with debates (in a conference format) for hackers, security engineers, and their associates. The organizers put on a conference that is a source of education, cooperation, and ongoing discourse for information technologists and people in the sector. Technical and academic presentations are delivered in the spirit of peer review and increased knowledge sharing.
This enables the area of information security to broaden and deepen its scope, as well as continue its quest for highly sophisticated scientifically based knowledge.
Rather of spending a fortune to hear a person in a suit try to sell you something, you can pay a few dollars to hear genuine programmers and hackers discuss the unfiltered side of Cybersecurity.
Rather than attempting to come up with questions that would reveal the seller as a phony, you may engage in engaging conversations with people who have acquired entry to high-security facilities.
This isn’t the complete list of all BSides security events – instead, we list the events that are submitted to us.
BSides Prishtina 2022
BSides Prishtina 2022 will be the very first BSides security conference to be held in the country of Kosovo. The live event will take place at the University of Prishtina, which is located in the capital city of Kosovo, Prishtina.
Over the last several years, the number of information technology students and professionals in Kosovo has consistently increased, with noteworthy growth in information security students and professionals. It was felt that it was time to create a larger community event to bring together and develop the talent that had been gathered via various local Information Security meetups over the previous three years. With the BSides security conference model, we want to take the next step in developing and promoting the expanding information security community in Kosovo and the Western Balkans.
On June 4, 2022, BSides Orlando will throw a major tournament to commemorate these Unprecedented Times. Please join them! Prepare for the event by participating in tough training sessions led by well-known and knowledgeable oracles, which will take place on June 3, 2022.
The festival will bring together security champions, strange visionaries, famous scholars, rich donors, and loud spectators for a grand celebration of daring adventures and fascinating shows.
