We have NO tolerance for physical/verbal/sexual harassment of any human!
Our Code of Conduct is “Be Excellent to Each Other”, AKA the “Golden Rule”. Failing that, it is “Do not be a jerk *, or we will kick you out!”.
Asking questions of a speaker during their talk to get clarity or debate a point is not being a jerk…heckling or haranguing the speaker is. If you are not sure – ask – or err on the side of basic decency and common courtesy. If what you are doing would not be acceptable to have been done to you, your best friend, your worst enemy, sister, niece, daughter, brother, nephew, son, mother, father, or any other human being…don’t do it. Also, do not let another person treat anyone else that way – whether you know them or not. If someone asks you to stop...then stop.
If you are having an issue with a BSides participant of any badge type, find a member of our Security Operations Team in the red BSides t-shirts (or any staff member with a grey badge). They will call our Safety & Medical Response Team (S.M.R.T.), who will assist you in determining the next steps for you to feel safe and heard.
* Staff reserves the right to determine what constitutes “Being a jerk”.
