Security BSides (commonly referred to as BSides) is a series of loosely affiliated information security conferences. Heavily inspired by the BSides Manifesto, the BSides Perth team aims to bring that level of professionalism and excitement across the Nullarbor.
- We aim to put on a diverse, inclusive and safe conference catering for everyone.
- We aim to 'give back' every dollar of sponsor money in value to the participants.
- We plan to never charge more than $50 per ticket, with many concessions available to those in need.
Security BSides (commonly referred to as BSides) is a hacker convention that provides a community driven framework for information security conferences.
BSides Original Founders
BSides was co-founded by Mike Dahn, Jack Daniel, and Chris Nickerson in 2009. Due to an overwhelming number of presentation submissions to Black Hat USA in 2009, the rejected presentations were presented to a smaller group of individuals.
The conference structure grew over time and was provided to allow anyone to organize their own BSides gatherings. There are now 100's of BSides events running globally!
Here's a few of the things we have in store at each of our conferences...
Without our amazing speakers there would be no conference...be sure to thank them for sharing their knowledge, wisdom, and experience
Usually a mix of whatever we design (t-shirts, badges, stickers etc.) plus sponsor swag...no product brochures!!
CTFs are hard...if you ever complain about a CTF, try making one! We have some pretty awesome sponsors and volunteers who help us out MASSIVELY with this!
Huge HUGE thank you to UWA who have partnered with us from the beginning to make our conference dream a reality...much love!
Without our volunteers, your time with us would be way more miserable...from registration to clean up, the vollies are here to make your experience a positive one...say thank you!
Could we run without sponsors..probably, yes. Would it offer the attendees as much...definitely not! Every sponsor $ goes back in to value provided to the attendees, and we thank them deeply for everything.
Call To Action
Each BSides is a peer to peer framework for creating events for and by members of the information security field. The idea is to broaden the scope of discussion beyond the usual boundaries of space and time, and to provide an opportunity for people to both present and engage in a small group setting that stimulates cooperation.Buy Tickets
