BSides Boston is a volunteer driven information security conference that is put together by the community and for the community. Our goal is to make information as free as possible. BSides Boston is just one of many BSides events that happen all over the world. We would like to thank our very generous sponsors which allow us to make this event at a very low cost to our participants.
In prior years, we have had a sizeable event wait list for tickets. To accomodate the increased demand for tickets to this event, we have moved the event to a much larger venue. The event will be held at Harvard University's Science Center.
BSides Boston is a two day event. Day 1 will be training sessions only. Day 2 will be talks. Tickets for each day are being sold separately this year.
Do I need to buy a ticket for each day?
Yes. To make it easier to handle persons who couldn't make it for day 2, we've split the tickets. You need to buy a ticket for each day. Day 1 is training classes only. Day 2 is the keynote and talks.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
MBTA red line to Harvard Square is your best bet.
Discounted parking will be available on day 2 (Saturday) at specific Harvard University parking lots. You must pre-book parking in advance. Details on how to obtain the day 2 parking pass will be sent out with your ticket confirmation e-mail.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Additional contact information is posted on bsidesboston.org
What's the refund policy?
If you can't make it no problem. EventBrite has a refund request link (somewhere). Submit the request and we'll take care of it.
Is lunch provided?
Due to the increased cost of the event space and increased attendance numbers we aren't able to offer a lunch this year. However, there are plenty of great food options in Harvard square and we've allocated a lunch hour so you can socialize and network with new acquaintances.
Do I need to bring anything?
If you are competing in the CTF, you will want to bring a laptop.
If you are attending a training class, you will want to bring a laptop.
- Hardware Hacking: Attendees should bring a laptop and have the ability to run the latest version of Kali Linux. It is best to be able to boot directly into Kali, such as off a USB stick, however most people have success running Kali inside a VM for this class if necessary
- Being Mean: In order to follow along with the Labs, attendees should come with a laptop and have BurpSuite (Free) installed.
- ICS Network Analysis: Laptop with VM Workstation and Wireshark installed.
If you are participating in the badge contest, you will want to bring a computing device. Tablet, computer maybe more convenient but a phone could work too.
Will there be a CTF?
Yes. The CTF will be occur on Day 2 (April 15). You will need to buy a ticket for Day 2.
Is there a social networking event after the talks?
Of course. Details will be posted on bsidesboston.org and via twitter handle @BSidesBoston
