In music, a "b-side" is a term from the days of vinyl records that refers to a secondary recording that is usually left out of an album. Security BSides was co-founded in 2009 by Jack Daniel, Chris Nickerson, and Mike Dahn after being rejected from a DefCon event. These professionals wanted to create more opportunities for researchers and professionals to share their ideas, outside of the larger, expensive conferences.
Now Security BSides is a framework utilized internationally by a network of loosely affiliated conferences, each unique in their personality but united in their cause: make the sharing of information accessible and fun.
We welcome students, professionals, and even those just curious about Information Security to join us at our Conference!
Want to help make this Conference a reality? As a volunteer-run organization, we need volunteers for a variety of tasks and responsibilities.
