Event Details

Security on the beach, where else but in Los Angeles!

 The goal of BSidesLA is to mash up the local Southern California security community with the best open thinkers from around the world in the famous SecurityBSides open, interactive and community oriented format.  This is a collaborative event - for all of us, by all of us.  The only thing we ask of you is to participate.  Come and talk, speak up, ask questions and participate throughout the event.  It is a time for all of us to learn, share and explore without judgment, and to inspire those around us.


 The event will include:

Thursday and Friday during the day there will be a selection of semi-scheduled talks at  Dockweiler Youth Center.

    • Registration opens at 9:30 AM Thursday and 8:30am on Friday
    • Talks start at 10:00 AM Thursday and 9am Friday
    • Lunch will be provided and will be at 12:00 both days

Thursday Night After Party on the Beach! We will have food, drink, and fire pits!

Each BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by information 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. 

BSides was born out of number of rejections to the CFP for Black Hat USA 2009.  A number of quality speakers were rejected, not due to lack of quality but lack of space and time.  Any constrained system must operate within the bounds to which it has defined itself.  Conferences constrain themselves to the eight hours a day for however many days they run.  Our goal is to provide people with options by removing those barriers and providing more options for speakers, topics, and events.



Big thank you to all the organizers who make this year even better!  Many will be returning this year, and we encourage anyone else who would like to come out and help us make 2015 even better!
