Cape Town, South Africa
Conference Description (submitted by organizer)
This year our theme is “Back to the Basics”. This theme covers a large spectrum, from the BASIC programming language, through basic mistakes made in hardware. Fundamentals of personal privacy in the information age and fresh takes on basic information security problems through to applying basic principles to new problems.
We encourage talks from all over South Africa, as well as globally, but this year we would especially like to encourage those in the Cape Town community (including the academic community) to submit talk proposals, and to actively participate in the conference.
If you’d like to speak to BSides, have an idea, but need some encouragement or advice, feel free to speak to one of the organizers for assistance or to reach out to InfoSec Unlocked. As stated on the website, “Each BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by information security community members”, but this doesn’t exclude the devops and development communities. We all ensure security through our own efforts and we would welcome talks on these fronts.
