Conference Description (submitted by organizer)
BSides Asheville (BSides AVL) was started in 2014 by several information security professionals living in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. BSides AVL is a 100% volunteer-run information security conference that is held annually in Asheville, North Carolina. Presentations at this local conference cover a wide range of information security topics from technical topics, such as dissecting network protocols, to policy issues such as managing information leakage via social networks and complex international problems, such as cyber warfare. The conference also offers hands-on activities, such lock picking and ethnical hacking. Our programming focuses on high-quality content, and our smaller, more intimate networking atmosphere fosters strong audience participation and overall group interaction. BSides Asheville conference aims to give researchers, professionals, and practitioners alike a chance to meet, engage in conversation through scheduled talks and events, as well as offer a networking opportunity that will result in new collaborative efforts for research and other security projects in the local community and beyond.
