BSides Orlando is a conference based on the international series of BSides Security Conferences. We partner with larger conferences as the “B Side” of the record. While speakers and other workshops are already in town we ask them to share their knowledge and time with our smaller conference. BSides Security conferences are designed to help anyone looking to learn more about information security while engaging the attendees with fun events like CTFs (Capture the Flag), Lock Picking Villages, and career building workshops.
Information Security can be a difficult field to break into with a high barrier of entry. By partnering with larger more expensive conferences, in our case SANS Orlando, we bring world class speakers to students and the security curious. This allows individuals to grow by connecting them with industry leaders at a smaller more intimate event. Attendees and new speakers get unprecedented access to people that can help them grow their skills and career. We do all of this with the partnership of universities, colleges, sponsors so that we can provide students FREE admission and keep admission fees low, generally around $20, for non-students.
BSides Orlando now draws over 500 people from all over the country!
