Get ready for the Next Big Thing

Join us at the Tuscany Suites on August 4th & 5th, 2015 for our 7th annual iteration of

Security BSides Las Vegas


The #BSidesLVSlogan contest vote is in progress!    The Call for Safety & Security is OPEN!

The Proving Ground Call for Papers and Call for Mentors are OPEN!


BSides Las Vegas isn’t another “talk at you” conference.

Track after track, year after year, the security researchers, engineers, analysts and managers that present at BSidesLV are looking to engage our participants and be engaged by them. They want your feedback, insights, opinions and questions on the latest InfoSec topics and discussions of the Next Big Thing.

Our speakers don’t talk at you, they converse with you.
Come join the conversation!

If you’re interested in staying with us, the official Group Code is BSLV15.
