Def Con, BSides, Derby, Infosec, Cackalacky. So many conferences, but what can you actually do and how do you get the most out of your experience there?

This month we will focus on conferences, mostly Def Con and BSidesLV conference preparations, but we’ll also discuss BSides RDU, InfoSeCon, and Cackalacky Con. All the logistics and activities available can be overwhelming and leaving you with FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). We’ll discuss how to make it easier on yourself and plan ahead to get the most out of the conference.

We will start with the usual announcements and a brief overview of conferences. Then a round table discussion, where you are welcome to, but not required to speak. Come with questions or advice for others. We’ll move into open discussion if we run out of conference topics.

4:00 – 6:00 Conference Discussion
6:00 – 8:00 Open discussion at a nearby bar

Where:  150 Fayetteville St #1400, Raleigh, NC 27601

Security BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by cyber security community members. The goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time. It 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.

Security is top of mind across the entire sphere of IT and the world beyond. Therefore, more people and organizations are interested in the next new thing in security. BSides is the place where these people come to collaborate, learn and share.

With many tech-companies, colleges and universities in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and surrounding areas, it is also an international center of innovation in the security industry.
