What is Security BSides, anyway?

Started by a group of hackers, security researchers and people passionate about cyber security, who are keen to share their knowledge and ideas, Security Bsides is a global network of community oriented, grassroots non-profit security events taking place anywhere from Athens, to São Paulo!

From the Bsides Community Wiki: “Bsides creates opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. It is where conversations for the next-big-thing are happening”.

I see everything is in english - will the talks be in english, too?

Yes! We will consider Hebrew talks, but prefer to keep everything in english so we can share the knowledge and invite international guests to attend. If we accept presentations in Hebrew, we’ll offer simultaneous translation.

Why are we charging for entrance?

For once, We hope this will help us serve our community better, by making sure that people who sign up for our event will participate in person. Worldwide, many of the larger Security BSides events and other security community conferences also charge a token fee. As we mostly rely on sponsorships , this year we have decided to charge a small fee that will help us offset some of the event production costs.

Is BSidesTLV a commercial event?

No. We are a 100% volunteer run, registered nonprofit association, and the team is fully dedicated to hosting the best community oriented, non commercial event possible.

Coffee will be available all day at no cost.
