Security BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by information security community members. Started from 2009 in Las Vegas, these events are happening all around the world in all major cities with a goal to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time.
BSides Singapore hold on to the same original values and responsible for organizing an approved independent BSides event. Singapore is much more than the sum of its world-famous numerous attractions. Capitalising on its melting pot of cultures, this small island is constantly evolving, reinventing, and reimagining itself, with people who are passionate about creating new possibilities.
At BSides Singapore, together we create 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.
BSides was born out of number of rejections to the CFP for Black Hat USA 2009. A number of quality speakers were rejected, not due to lack of content but lack of space and time. Any constrained system must operate within the bounds to which it has defined itself. Conferences constrain themselves to the eight hours a day for however many days they run. Our goal is to provide people with options by removing those barriers and providing more alternatives for speakers, topics, and events.
Much like Noisebridge, and other hacker spaces, we are a do-ocracy; in other words, if you want it, then you do it or make it happen. We do not have members, but rather participants. You are the "we" and we can only be successful if you make that happen for yourself.
