BSidesLV: How (not) to run a Bsides [Panel]

Now that the full list of talks for #BSidesLV has been released. I’m happy to announce that I’ve been invited to take part in the “How (not) to run a Bsides” panel taking place on Thursday 4th August (16:30 – 17:30). I’m pretty sure they mistook me for somebody else to be honest… but what the hell!

As with every first time conference I learnt a lot about how to do things and how not to do things while putting on BSidesVienna. Even with a few experienced hands (special thanks to Astera and Lynx).

Security BSides has grown so much since it started back in 2009. With so many BSides springing up all over the world it’s great to see that the enthusiasm is still growing. Hopefully we can throw together a few interesting hints and tips for people looking to run a BSides event… at the very least I can give you a list of 10 things that can and will go wrong.

Hope to see you in Vegas… I’ll be the English guy that looks like an overcooked lobster 😉

-= BSides History =-

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.
