Security B-Sides DC 2018 General admission to the BSidesDC Crypt Kids Con for 2018. Kids with these tickets MUST be accompanied by a ticket holding parent or guardian. No chaperone, no admittance. T-shirt size is for the Crypt Kids attendee, adults will get a BSides DC con shirt.


We haven't dropped the ball on the schedule. Just trying to coordinate with all speakers and potentials to confirm.


So sorry for all the silence. We've been working on securing a venue, which is much more challenging in such a big election year. The team is getting close to some final data, and we hope to announce both dates for this year, and the venue for the next several years to come, soon.

Security B-Sides DC 2015


Stay up late on Friday night! First round sales door opens at 12:01 am Saturday, 8/15/15 for our third Security B-Sides DC!


Have we mentioned how much we love our sponsors? They're not pushy, they're genuinely interested in participating in, and bettering the community. Be sure to check them out, and express your thanks for their support to make the event possible!

A special shout out to Veris Group ATD for their "Engage the Audience" level work!!


It's coming. It. The first round of ticket sales. Of which there will be two total. If you don't make it, don't worry - you can purchase at-door day of the event as well, but we may make fun of you.


The CFP closed, and the monkeys and minions are churning through the submissions, dark arts are summoned, and results will be coming...soon.


The CFP is OPEN! You have until 6/30 to get your ideas and talks in. Note that you can also use this form to submit ideas/abstracts for 4 hour training sessions, as well as CTFs, CryptKid (KidCon) projects, and more. So get to it. Submit. You know you want to.


Also, special sponsorship love to both HP (first sponsor) and Cobalt Strike, which has also agreed to sponsor this year's lanyards!


The B-Sides DC Web site has been EXTENSIVELY overhauled in preparation for our 2015 event! The CFP opens soon, so be sure to check it out in advance and bookmark.


2015!! 3. All things in 3's.

CFP opens 4/15/2015 and closes 6/30/2015. Get your new super awesome ideas ready to submit!!


In addition to that, we'll be contributing Jericho's honorarium of $250 as keynote speaker, to DC City Wildlife, a local animal shelter that also provides veterinary services to wildlife in the area. Noted for their support of the local squirrel population, it just seemed appropriate (although we admit he suggested it first, it was just so right).


We decided to round up on the donations you all provided, either voluntarily, as part of the crypto-challenge, or through swag purchases like the sweatshirts. So we're pleased to announce we'll be able to donate $600 to EFF and $400 to Hackers for Charity this year. Thank you all for the community support!


Yeah, so life is still a bit busy, but we do have the conference evaluation numbers crunched, and we've assessed the financials at a high level. We did good, and thanks again to everyone involved, from all those who attended, to our volunteer minion army, security detail, organizers and our keynote, Jericho. We'll get some of them up as soon as we can, and update the Website with the planning info for 2015!

We're also working on speaker evaluations, but those take a bit longer (downside to the paper forms is the post-event data entry work).


One of the best comments ever on the conference evals, on how did you hear about us: "Dad let/made me come."
