BSides Las Vegas is a nonprofit organization formed to stimulate the Information Security industry and community by providing an annual, two-day conference for security practitioners and those interested in entering or looking to enter the field.
Our event is a source of education, communication, and collaboration
The technical and academic presentations at BSidesLV are given in the spirit of peer review and for the dissemination of knowledge among all specialties. This allows the field of Information Security to grow and continue its pursuit of a world where privacy and security are attainable.
What started in 2009 as several conversations on Twitter about the politics of InfoSec conferences and the disappointing CFP rejections turned into a plan to host a small alternative event to create a friendlier space and really put the focus on the conversations that make our community great. What started in a vacation rental grew into larger and larger spaces before making our home at Tuscany Suites and Casino.
