Event details


Security on the beach, where else but in Los Angeles!


The goal of BSidesLA is to mash up the local Southern California security community with the best open thinkers from around the world in the famous SecurityBSides open, interactive and community oriented format.  This is a collaborative event - for all of us, by all of us.  The only thing we ask of you is to participate.  Come and talk, speak up, ask questions and participate throughout the event.  It is a time for all of us to learn, share and explore without judgment, and to inspire those around us.

The event will include:

  • Thursday and Friday during the day there will be a selection of semi-scheduled talks at Dockweiler Youth Center.
    • Registration opens at 9:30 AM Thursday and Friday
    • Talks start at 10:00 AM on Thursday and 9:00 AM on Friday
    • Lunch will be provided and will be at 12:00


  • Thursday Night After Party on the Beach!  Food, firetalks, ocean, and the stars. Fun begins at 5:00 PM
  • Fireside Talks - Come sit by a fire on the beach and talk after the talks are over. We'll be having free-form group conversations driven by community-driven questions on relevant topics in the world of security and tech.
  •  3D Printing - 3D printing has become a hot topic over the past couple years in the hacker community. Learn about how 3D printers work, play with them, and check out software and hardware that runs them.


Volunteers!  Sponsors! We need sponsors, wranglers, handlers, speakers, nuts, looneys, the sane, and those of you that are somewhere in-between to all throw in a hand. Because in Los Angeles, we do everything BIG.
