About this event

Conference Information

We welcome all information security professionals, students, and enthusiasts to the ninth annual BSidesAugusta! We're so thankful that we could secure Augusta University's fantastic Harrison Educations Commons Building on R.A. Dent Blvd for the seventh year in a row.

All things considered, we thought 2021 was a pretty good year for BSidesAugusta ... and we're shooting for a bigger event this year!

Circuit board badges are back in 2022 while supplies last. Every badge will come with a component kit that attendees can add after the conference OR at a workshop session on the day of conference. Those badge holders that want to participate in the workshop may sign up for a time slot at the Cyber City Circuits table on the day of the conference. See the schedule for more details. 

The conference will host four tracks of mostly technical talks. This year's CTF sponsor is GRIMM, which will host it from at their sponsor area. Bring a laptop if you want to participate!

We are excited to welcome Tim Medin, CEO of Red Siege Information Security, as our morning keynote! His keynote will be simulcast from Track 1 to Tracks 2, 3, and 4.

There will be sponsor tables, giveaways in the talks, a free tricky tray raffle, and more! Those who register before September 16 and who arrive at the conference before the end of the morning keynote will get a free t-shirt and Chick-Fil-A lunch.

Follow us on Twitter or Instagram for updates or watch the schedule.

FAQs

Where will the training and conference be held?

Training classes (9/26-9/29) will be held at the Georgia Cyber Center. The BSidesAugusta conference (10/1) will be held at Augusta University's Harrison Educations Commons Building on R.A. Dent Blvd.

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

Yes. As great as the venues are, they have a finite amount of space for attendees. Every attendee must have a ticket. Please don't put our volunteers in the awkward position of not admitting your un-ticketed child or other guest.

Do I have to bring my ticket to the training and/or conference?

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

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 training venue?

The training venue is the Georgia Cyber Center, which is about five blocks from the Hyatt House Augusta / Downtown, and a few miles from the other conference hotels. If you are not staying at the Hyatt or other nearby hotel, the most convenient way to get to the training venue is by car. There is a parking deck adjacent to the Georgia Cyber Center. Your training registration includes validated parking in that deck. Rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft are available for a fare.

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

Transport - BSidesAugusta is held at the Harrison Education Commons Building, about 2 miles from the training venue. The most convenient way to get to the conference venue is by car. Rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft are available for a fare.

Parking - If you choose to drive to the venue, note that parking is first come, first served. You may park in ANY open-gated lot, even in spots marked “Reserved” by the University. The only exceptions are disabled, dormitory, and public safety parking, which still require a proper permit to be displayed. Please use the Goss Lane Parking Deck, the Dent Blvd Deck, the Cancer Center Deck on Laney Walker Blvd., and other parking as published on the parking map here: https://bsidesaugusta.org/parking

Last parking update: September 24, 2021 (Promise we'll update this before the event!)

If I register for a class 9/26-9/29, do I need to buy a separate ticket to BSidesAugusta?

What is the refund policy?

Sorry, there are no refunds for the conference, except if the conference is canceled. If you buy a training ticket, you may request a refund until the registration deadline for the specific class. Requested refunds for training will be no more than the cost of the ticket minus Eventbrite fees (currently 6% + $1.59). If we refund you for training at your request, you will lose your BSidesAugusta and Security Onion Con tickets as well, except if your training class is canceled. See the "Training Cancellation" section above for more details. Contact us using "Contact the Organizer" to request a training ticket refund. 

I registered for a General Admission ticket but now I want to attend one of the training classes (which all come with free admission). Can I be refunded for my ticket?

Yes. Contact us at info@bsidesaugusta.org.

Will there be a virtual option for the conference?

We plan to run the conference exclusively in person. We plan to publish talk videos after the conference.
