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.
We all know about the things and situations that happened in 2017. We also know about the lack of specialists on the market, so we decided to create events and parties because without such activities development of Information Security community moves very slowly. Having analyzed the situation with the security conferences in Ukraine, we understood that we need to involve young people in infosec. BSidesKyiv2018 will be focused on such people who want to start learning infosec but don't know where to dig for more information. And by such people we mean students and enthusiasts.
The conference takes place on April 21, 2018 and consists of two streams:
We are opening our CFP for everyone! We want our community to grow and improve, that's why we need some new blood, because old-timers don't always manage to cope with new challenges.
This time our conference will be targeted at students, so we won't need complex and recondite speeches. We want to introduce the most useful and simple content for the beginners who need to choose their way and understand what knowledge they need to develop. This should help them get a sense of infosec and decide whether they really want to become a part of it.
If you need some hardcore, it might be better if you take a look at some other, more specialized Ukrainian conferences. But if you think that your speech isn't that interesting for professional, but might be useful for beginners - we are waiting for it on our CFP. All you need to do it fill out the form.
