Description

We welcome all information security professionals, students, and enthusiasts to the sixth annual BSidesAugusta! Augusta has had a great 2018 and we're excited to be a part of it! A giant thanks to Augusta University, especially the Cyber Institute and Hull College of Business, for making the Harrison Educations Commons Building on R.A. Dent Blvd available to us for the fourth straight year.

New this year:

- Grimm will run a cool CTF from its booth in the sponsor area. Stop by with your laptop and test your skills.

- Upstairs, there will be a morning PowerShell workshop hosted by Under the Wire and an afternoon workshop "Tackling CTF Problems with Python" hosted by CodeWarz/RunCode! Bring your laptop and learn.

- We'll have a couple of interesting panel discussions in Track 4. See the schedule for more details.

Great talks as always. We had more submissions this year than ever before, almost all of them top notch, so it was difficult to select only three-and-a-half track's worth! You won't be disappointed unless you stay home and play Fortnite all day.

FALE! We're happy to announce the very popular FALE lock pick village will return this year. Come out and practice your physical penetration skills!

This year's afterparty is at SRP Park (the brand new baseball stadium) in North Augusta! There will be batting cages, giveaways, entertainment, food, drink, stay-and-play tours, and other exciting things. The WOW Club will be open as well.

You want a ticket to the afterparty, so spend $10 more and get it today. Or, you can just help us out and pay the full price ($20) for an afterparty ticket.

Also, check out the fundraiser dinner benefitting the Rural Technology Fund on the Thursday before the conference. Find more information about the dinner here: https://rtfdinner.eventbrite.com

We will not honor requests for the bundle after tickets have been purchased.

We can say this - you want to be there. It's at the brand new SRP Park in North Augusta (187 Railroad Ave., North Augusta, SC 29841), adjacent to the Savannah River. Music, food, beverages, people, things to do. We'll post updates for the afterparty as we know them!

FAQs

Will it cost me to bring my child or a guest to the conference and/or afterparty?

Yes. As great as our venues are, they have a finite amount of space for attendees.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the conference?

Yes, please bring your ticket as it's your admission to the event and you will need it at check-in. You also can use the Eventbrite app.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the afterparty?

If you attend the conference, present your bundle or separate afterparty ticket when you check in to receive a paper afterparty ticket. That paper ticket will be collected at the gate when you enter the afterparty.

If you purchased an afterparty ticket separately without attending the conference, please bring your Eventbrite ticket as it's your admission to the event and you will need it to enter. You also can use the Eventbrite app.

What's the deal with the afterparty?

It's at the new SRP Park. There's no game that night. There will be batting cages, giveaways, entertainment, food, drink, stay-and-play tours, and other exciting things. The WOW Club will be open as well.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Each attendee needs to have their own ticket in their own name.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the conference venue?

The most convenient way to get to the venue is by car. Parking is available in the gravel lot adjacent to the building and in the Goss Lane Parking Deck, which can be found on the map (just above the Harrison Education Commons):
http://www.augusta.edu/maps/images/healthsciencescampus.pdf

What are my transport/parking options getting to the afterparty?

The most convenient way to get to the afterparty venue is by car. Parking for the afterparty will be in the garage next to the stadium and will be marked. Overflow parking will be at the North Augusta Municipal Building.

What can I bring to the conference?

Bring a laptop if you plan to participate in the CTF or a workshop.

What is the refund policy?

Sorry, there are no refunds.

I bought a conference ticket and now I want to go to the afterparty. Can I get the bundle deal retroactively on my ticket?

No. If you think you might want to go to the afterparty, buy the bundle for $10 more. Even if you don't go, proceeds from your purchase will help us make the event even better.

Privacy Policy

We (the BSidesAugusta Board of Directors) are collecting your data only for BSidesAugusta registration/notification/capacity planning purposes. We don't give it to any sponsors, vendors, etc. We don't even give it to all our staff, just the ones who need it to check you in. The rest just get number totals.
