Sep 30th CFP selections start and the CFP will close Oct 31st

BSidesPhilly aims to provide a diverse range of talks covering both conventional cybersecurity topics as well as emerging threats and technologies.  There will be multiple tracks for talks. Topics can range from completed or near-complete research, tool development, best practices, lessons learned and experiences.  BSides conferences are designed to be “conversations” and should allow for interaction with the attendees, as lectures are nice from time to time, but new insights or ancillary work often comes from dialogue.

Why Should You Consider Presenting?

  • Increase the overall strength of our community by sharing best practices and experiences with peers and emerging professionals.
  • Have the opportunity to share your interests with other like-minded and inclined individuals
  • Develop collaborative relationships and crowd source new ideas and solutions
  • Immediate feedback from your audience
  • Swag and other perks to be detailed at a later time

  • Information Technology
  • Network Security
