UK Security BSides, Mark Your Calendar & Don’t Miss Out

BSides conferences are fantastic events for budding cyber and information security novices through to seasoned security professionals to learn, discuss the latest security challenges, network with peers and to make new contacts from across the UK cyber security scene. 

Some BSides conferences are run in tandem with nearby popular mainstream security conferences, but unlike most mainstream security conferences, BSides agendas are more participation driven and are more collaborative focused. Any group of security passionate individuals can organise a BSides event at a city not already covered, under the official Security BSides direction. In recent years, following on from the multi-year success of BSides London, there has been a steady stream of new BSides conferences popping up at the various regions throughout the UK.
