BSides Chicago 2019

Founded in 2011, BSidesChicago is one of Chicago’s Premier Security Conferences and is driven by the people and volunteers, which have continued to make it one of the fastest growing security conferences in the Midwest. The conference focuses on providing attendees with the latest in information security research, development and exploits. The conference is hosted yearly in Chicago and features various presentations and demonstrations from the best minds in industry and academia.

To 2018 BSides Chicago staff and volunteers who have helped make it such a great success, thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU! Without you, it would not have been such a great success. We received so many compliments from all the attendees. To the CTF Crew – d*mn, you all pulled off one heck of a contest – and the competitors loved it. Registration team – you blew it out of the water! To all of you, I certainly hope you will consider joining us for 2019, because we could not do it without you!

One attendee wrote:

The vendors who support the SecurityBSides conferences aren’t the same old vendors who throw cash at the same old conferences around the world. The vendors who sponsor the SecurityBSides conferences are similar to the people who organize, attend and speak at the conferences. I had never heard of some of the sponsors before I saw them sponsoring SecurityBSides conferences but some of them provide innovative solutions to information security problems faced by many business around the world. I think actions speak louder than words so I’m happy to say that we have recently signed a 3 year deal with a company I first became aware of through their sponsorship of a SecurityBSides conference!
