BsidesPittsburgh is a free, volunteer-run computer security conference to be held in Pittsburgh on Friday, June 1, 2012. Security Bsides is part of a global series of community-driven conferences presenting a wide range of information security topics from technical topics, such as dissecting network protocols, to policy issues such as managing information leakage via social networks. In keeping with the community-driven theme and to help minimize event costs, the conference format, talks, and activities are agreed upon by all attendees. We’re currently looking for presenters, ideas and topics. Please post your ideas at the BsidesPittsburgh website.
Pittsburgh has a flourishing information security community; this is a great chance to meet each other, share ideas and work together. Many of those professionals in Pittsburgh as well as nationally recognized experts are doing awesome things in the field; let's get together to learn, collaborate, and protect. Please see our web page for more information, to RSVP, or to submit a talk or suggestion. The event is free – even the food and drinks – and held in full view of the City of Pittsburgh and PNC Park at the Left Field Meeting Space on the north shore.
