Security B-Sides Orlando 2016

March 12-13, 2016 - Security B-sides Orlando is a community driven event seeking to bring together anyone with a passion for making, breaking, or protecting. We welcome newbies and experts and anyone in between. Even if you don’t work in information security, you will be sure to find topics of interest. Please join us for the 4th Annual Security B-Sides Orlando Conference.

Bsides Orlando acts as a supplement to larger events, namely SANS Orlando 2016. In running Bsides Orlando alongside of SANS, we get the ability to provide a laid back environment to the professionals attending SANS and access to speakers that normally wouldn’t be at the event. This allows us to foster communications and collaboration that helps increase the level of engagement between professionals, hobbyists and students.

The goal of Bsides Orlando is to bring the conversation to another level, to inspire people in their passions for security. Major conferences often focus on the current hot button topics in information security, while Bsides Orlando and similar Bsides events often cover topics that don’t get the big spotlight, but should be discussed. This includes anything from learning how to prototype electronics projects to discussing the ethics of target rich environments in a pentest.
