Hackathon Details below!!
B-Sides events combine security expertise from a variety of platforms in search of the “next big thing” in information security. B-Sides is an open platform that gives security experts and industry professionals the opportunity to share ideas, insights, and develop longstanding relationships with others in the community. It is a rare opportunity to directly connect and create trusted relationships with key members of the community.
B-Sides are free, community organized events put on by local individuals with the expressed goal of enabling a platform for information dissemination. B-Sides is an ‘unconference’ that follows the ‘open spaces’ format. This varies from structured presentations to smaller break-out groups, but both provide
a direct connection between speakers and the audience.
We're hosting a Capture The Flag (CTF) event this year! The event is sponsored by both GoSecure/AtlSecCon and Fortinet with GoSecure/AtlSecCon providing setup and configuration of the CTF software and Fortinet providing all network equipment and configuration required for the event. Please note, this is a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) event, so bring your tablet/laptop if you plan to participate.
As with any good challenge, we'll be offering some awesome prizes:
Grand Prize: Raspberry Pi starter kit and two books (Penetration Testing with Raspberry Pi & The Hacker Playbook 2: Practical Guide To Penetration Testing)
2nd Prize: Raspberry Pi start kit
3rd Prize: The Hacker Playbook 2: Practical Guide To Penetration Testing
The CTF will be happening at around 6pm, and there will be lots of finger food to keep everyone (participants and spectators) fuelled up. For those participating, you'll be working in teams of two. We'll be offering a sign-up sheet on the day of the event, so you've got two weeks to get your team together. Choose wisely!
The Security BSides St. John's CFP is now closed. We had a tremendous amount of submissions, all of them being high quality and engaging topics, which will make this year's final decision on speakers a very difficult one. We thank everyone for their submissions. The organising committee will be voting on submissions and notifying all submitters.
Our Call for Sponsors is still open - email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a a Sponsorship package.
Never been to St. John's? Here are some fun facts!
St. John's is located along on the East Coast of Canada, on the northeast of the Avalon Peninsula in southeast Newfoundland. It is the most easterly city in North America.
Referred to as "North America's Oldest City", St. John's is the oldest settlement in North America to hold city status, with year-round settlement beginning sometime before 1620. The first transatlantic wireless transmission was also received in St. John's by Guglielmo Marconi on 12 December 1901. St. John's is very close to the Cape Spear National Historic Site which is the most easterly point in North America.
