BSidesDFW 2019

A Welcome from BSidesDFW

Welcome to the tenth year of Dallas-Fort Worth’s premier, low-cost security conference. We had a fantastic year in 2018, with our ninth annual conference, and are looking forward to another fantastic year of exciting talks by the community, and for the community. For ten years now we have provided a local low-cost alternative for the security hobbyists, enthusiasts, practitioners, academics, and researchers.

Oct 2019 - Back Log!

Time flies... We are frantically working to update the various information outlets. Twitter and the 2019 Wiki tend to get the updates first.

So what has been happening?
CFP has come and gone.
Registration is Open!
Speaker scheulde is being drafted and is always subject to change.
Speaker bios and talk summaries are to be posted soon.
Artwork is about to be on it's way to the printers. We hope you dig the logo this year.
Badges are being manufactured as we speak. We really think you will like these. Hats off to Alt_Bier and his helpers for killing it this year.
We have Villages and Workshops galore this year.

We have never really had a big theme. For 2019 think loosele "the future is a lie". So many things have been promised and so many things have not been delivered. How can we help to correct that and change the course for future generations. What can you do to influence better systems, better practices, better security, better privacy, better environments. Let's figure out how to have are cake and eat it too. Niether the cake nor the future should be a disappointment.
