BsidesLV 2012

BsidesLV 2012
July 25 - 26, 2012
Las Vegas, NV

Welcome to the BSidesLV 2012 planning pages! We're very excited to be involved in organizing yet another great BSides event and with your help, we believe that this will be our best year yet! As some of you are aware, there have been some major changes in the BSides organization in the past few months. Chris Nickerson stepped down from the Board of Directors of BSides global, and Gene Kim has taken his place. BSidesLV has broken off from the parent organization, in as much as we now have our own Board of Directors and are totally autonomous in our planning and execution. We do still have Jack Daniel (@jack_daniel) in common, though. No way Vegas was going to let him go, as he's the glue that binds this community together. That said, BSidesLV has two new Board members. The first is Joshua Marpet (@quadling). Josh has been involved in the hacker community since 1997 and has been active with BSidesLV since the beginning. He presented at BSidesLV I and has assisted in organizing the BSidesLV volunteer crew. He is also instrumental in helping his fiance produce BSidesDE. Josh is taking on the role of Secretary for BSidesLV. We're very excited to have him on the Board. Our second new Board member is GK Southwick (@banasidhe). GK has been loosely involved in the hacker community for almost 20 years. She ran the BSidesLV Safety & Security crew for BSidesLV II & III and is looking forward to the challenges of taking on the roles of Producer and Chairman of the Board. GK has an extensive background in event planning and execution and can't think of a better way to use her skills than helping to organize one of her favorite conferences.
