Unlike several years prior, where we offered pre-registration for a token refunded fee, this year, there will be no pre-reg. Badges will be offered days of show on a first-come, first-served, walk-in basis. You can secure a badge ahead of the conference in several ways: Become a donor, a speaker, a mentor, a sponsor, a volunteer, or get a room!
BSidesLV is one of the hottest names in InfoSec!
We have an amazing array of speakers each year, covering topics such as Penetration Testing, Forensics, Incident Response, Risk, and everything in between. We have a Lockpick Village, the Squirrels in a Barrel World Championship Social Engineering Capture The Flag, uncensored talks, and proximity to the other big InfoSec conferences in the world.
BSidesLV is the place where the conversations about the “Next Big Thing” happen first.
This year, BSidesLV will consist of four main speaking tracks, one math track, and one workshop track. We’re also teaming up with PasswordsCon. They will be co-locating with us, bringing you 2-for-1 conference action – all for the low, low price of FREE!!
What is BSides?
BSides Las Vegas is an Information / Security conference that’s different. We’re a 100% volunteer organized event, put on by and for the community, and we truly strive to keep information free.
There is no charge to the public to attend BSidesLV. Our costs are covered by our generous donors and sponsors, who share our vision of free dissemination of information. The conversations are getting more potent and the “TALK AT YOU” conferences are starting to realize they have to change. BSidesLV is making this happen by shaking-up the format.
The next big thing
Presenters at our conference are engaging our participants and getting the discussions started on the “Next Big Thing”, not preaching at you from the podium about last month’s news.
With tracks as diverse as “Common Ground”, focusing on non-tech issues of importance to the community, “Underground”, our Off-The-Record series that lets you delve deeper into the subjects that are better-off discussed Away-From-Keys, behind closed doors, and “Proving Ground”, our mentorship program for first-time presenters, YOU are the reason for this new era of Information Sharing and Teamwork.
Raising the bar for security
The BSides community has continuously raised the bar and put the INFO back in INFOSEC. We thank each and every member/attendee/organizer of this community for their hard work, sweat, and relentless pursuit of High Quality information.
We also have to give a HUGE amount of thanks to our generous sponsors and donors that have the foresight to give without strings attached, year after year, and PROVE to the community that we are all in this together. In concert, the members, sponsors and donors have allowed for us all to get together and make moves to change InfoSec…. one chat, speech, laugh, and/or drink at a time.
With some of the most passionate and influential infosec practitioners from around the country, and the world, coming to Vegas, BSidesLV is the place to be. The mix ranges from “down in the trenches” engineers, to business leaders, thought leaders, and executive decision makers of all stripes.
