Needless to say, anyone who has ever visited our InfoSec Directory before will know that we’re massive fans of BSides and list over a hundred of them every year, to search for more BSides events just hit the filter here. I’ve also interviewed Jack Daniel, co-founder of BSides. Anyway – long story short – if you’re an InfoSec pro in Pennsylvania, then we’d encourage you to get yourself over to Drexel University and attend this unconference for two major reasons: you’ll meet a ton of similar-minded people in the industry and you’ll also learn a lot too. Highly recommended and I wish the organizers the best of luck. This particular BSides was started back in 2015 so these folks know a thing or two about putting events on.
Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Thursday, July 2nd 2020, or created by us.
BSidesPhilly, an Information Security conference scheduled for December 4, 2020, at Drexel University. Like any other BSides events, BSidesPhilly aims at being an event to help showcase the security practices, research, and knowledge within the Philadelphia area in a more intimate setting compared to other, larger conferences.
The mission of this event is to improve and create awareness upon the conversation and research of security topics within the Philadelphia region for researchers, professionals, and practitioners alike. The conference aims to give these various groups 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. Above all, our goal is to create a self-sustaining event that will continue on an annual basis through the attendance and support of the security community.
This event also aims to provide a diverse range of talks covering both familiar cybersecurity topics as well as emerging threats and technologies. There will be multiple tracks for talks. Topics can range from completed or near-complete research, tool development, best practices, lessons learned, and experiences. BSides conferences are designed to be “conversations” and should allow for interaction with the attendees, as lectures are helpful from time to time, but new insights or ancillary work often comes from dialogue.
