BSides was built and has grown over conversations on Twitter, but times are changing, we are on Mastodon now, too.

Where's the padlock? About the wiki and HTTPS:  Logins are encrypted, but PBWorks does not support HTTPS on custom domains. We are moving to a new platform, but BSides is a volunteer organization and migration will be a significant undertaking. A team has come together, but please be patient as we plan and execute the migration.

 

As of May 2024, there have been 960 BSides events around the world, hosted in 239 cities spanning 63 countries.

Welcome to the BSides Community Wiki

 

What is BSides?

Each BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by information security community members.  The goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time.  It creates opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. It is where conversations for the next-big-thing are happening.

Please send an email to [email protected] if you would like to organize a BSides event in a city which is not already on the map. We will schedule a conversation to explain the rules and guidelines, and answer questions. Resources are available to help you make the event a success. You can see a brief overview of the ethos and rules on the Guidelines page.

BSides' History

 

BSides was born out of number of rejections to the CFP for Black Hat USA 2009.  A number of quality speakers were rejected, not due to lack of content but lack of space and time.  Any constrained system must operate within the bounds to which it has defined itself.  Conferences constrain themselves to the eight hours a day for however many days they run.  Our goal is to provide people with options by removing those barriers and providing more alternatives for speakers, topics, and events.

Anti-spam policy

 

It makes us all sad, but pointers to external pages from the front page will most likely be deleted without notice. Otherwise the page fills up rapidly with difficult-to-detect spam. Since version 2.0 of PBWiki, users can be authorized as 'Writers' or 'Readers'. By default, new users are authorized as 'Writers', accounts conducting inadequate operations will be turned into 'Readers' as a safety precaution. If the change appears unjustified, please contact  the Site Maintainers to restore the normal rights for the corresponding account.
