...a community-driven framework for building events for and by cyber security community members.

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. 

Security B-Sides Raleigh-Durham (B-Sides RDU) is proud to have had great speaker lineups at our events including keynotes by Dave Kennedy, Dan Kaminsky, Paul Vixie, Cliff Stoll, and for 2019: Chris Wysopal and Bruce Potter.

We are growing! The main conference will be at the Fletcher Hall -- an auditorium with 1,048 seats hosting a diverse lineup of live events and film. Fletcher Hall has been restored to its 1926 décor, and is the only downtown building designed in the Beaux Arts style.
