The goal of BSidesHyderabad is to mash up the 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.
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 we want to do everything BIG.
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.
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 quality 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 options for speakers, topics, and events.
Much like Noisebridge, and other hacker spaces, we are a do-acracy; in other words, if you want it, then you do to it or make it happen. We do not have members, but rather participants. You are the “we” and we can only be successful if you make that happen for yourself.
