About Security BSides

Security BSides, or simply BSides, is a grassroots movement that has sparked a global wave of community-driven conferences presenting a wide array of information security talks. Imagine it as the indie music festival of the cybersecurity world – it’s where the latest tunes in security research and innovation are shared, away from the mainstream stages. Born out of a need to find a home for security presentations that didn’t fit into the larger, more commercial conferences, BSides has become the stage for security professionals and enthusiasts to connect and share ideas in an open, collaborative environment.
