BsidesLV is one of the hottest names in InfoSec! We have an amazing array of speakers each year, from Pen Test, Forensics, Incident Response, and every facet of Security. With Lockpick Village, uncensored talks, proximity to the biggest InfoSec conference in the world, and sold-out registration every year, BSidesLV is the place to be seen, heard, and talked about.
The CFP is now open! Proving Ground

BSidesLV Mentorship Program
The CFM is now
open FULL! Thank you for your interest. We’d be happy to have you try again next year.
We at BsidesLV are again asking the InfoSec community to step-up and get more involved. One of the ways we’re doing this, is through our mentorship program for new speakers. One of our tracks is “Proving Ground” and the main criteria to get a slot in this track will be being a first time conference speaker. As we all know how hard it can be to find your voice, or even to just translate data into talking points that won’t lose your audience, we’re looking to pair each of the Proving Ground applicants up with a mid to high profile mentor, with a solid track record of public speaking, who will work with them from CFP to podium.
If this program sounds like something you’d be interested in, please review the BSLV Mentorship Program Information.
More information about the CTF will be posted soon.
Ladies and gentlemen, we are very excited to announce that we have teamed up with BSides Las Vegas to bring the World Championship of Social Engineering capture the flag (CTF). As with any World Championship we have the SE world champ belt up for grabs. (With squirrels of course.)
So what exactly is this? Well it is the most in-depth, get your hands dirty, no holds barred social engineering engagement. We are pulling out all of the stops on this one, there is nothing that is too far or fantastic, as a lot of research and polling has taken place to put together several Social Engineering scenarios and tie them together into a massive two day CTF, which is accessible to ALL backgrounds and ALL skill levels. Think of the things you have always wanted to try on a pentest or maybe something you read about but that would be illegal to try, well now you can, in a safe environment. Over the two days of BSides Las Vegas 2013 you will be faced with insane tasks, obstacles and killer squirrels, leading up to a final report (just like in the real world). Prepare for fun, challenges and the unexpected as this is the World Championship of Social Engineering.
FALE (FALE Association of Locksport Enthusiasts) will once again be hosting a Lockpick Village that folks can visit to talk about physical security, learn to pick locks or talk about advanced picking techniques and tips. There will be plenty of locks and spare picks to play with, so be sure to stop by! For more information about FALE, visit http://lockfale.com.
