Target Audience

While each BSides event is unique, we target the industry professional looking to offset or augment their current security skill set. These are industry leaders, thought leaders, information security professionals, and even students who wish to expand their body of knowledge. Their common goal is to learn and connect with others who share the same passion.

BSides provides a small and intimate environment for the attendees to directly engage the speaker before, during, and after their talk or presentation. Attendees are looking for more than just information; they are looking to make connections they will call upon throughout the rest of the year.

Countdown to Zero Day

The final (we hope) schedule is now up! You can check it here.

A lot of people say that the best thing about conferences is the “hall con”, hanging out and networking with others outside the talks, workshops, and so on. We do think we managed to have an absolutely amazing speaker line up that you will not want to miss a bit (thanks to our speakers!), but we also want people to network and hang out.

With this in mind, this year we’re having a welcome reception along with the lightning talks, on the 9th from 18:30 to 20:00. This will allow people to just chill, hangout, have a few drinks on us (specifically, our sponsors!) and just have a good time before going to rest to regain energy for the second day of the confence. We’re calling this part of the conference BeerSidesLisbon (name inspired by our friends from BSidesMCR).

A few additional points worth mentioning:

  • If you want to attend the workshops, check the requirements, and how to get a place;
  • Lightning talks registration is onsite on the 9th. They'll happen during our welcome reception;
  • You'll be able to check-in at any time during the conference.

Check the schedule, decide on yours, and get ready for the greatest bSidesLisbon ever!

See you soon!


Our CFP is now closed. We are amazed with the number and quality of talks received, which makes us very happy! The CFP review will be closed very soon, so we can start contacting the approved speakers and share with everyone the talks and workshops that will happen this year :)

Again, thank you all for you amazing support!

As usual, stay tuned to our twitter account to always have the latest news!

Welcome to BSidesLisbon 2017

And we’re back! Back for the 4th time, which we hope to be even better than the previous editions :)

You might have noticed that this year we have 2 days. That’s right! By popular request we will be extending a little bit the conference, so the CTF will take place on the day before the talks/workshops, so everyone can enjoy the whole event. There are some other things planned for the 9th November, which we will announce in due time :)

Besides this change, the event will be as last year, since we had such good feedback (although we will take into account every suggestion made by you!). We’ll have 2 tracks for talks, and a room for workshops. We’ll have the great networking area for everyone to chill, talk, network, and lunch. And before you ask, yes, there will be Pastéis de Nata for everyone to enjoy!

By the way, the CFP is now officially open, so go submit!!! This year we will be supporting partially the expenses for some speakers, so, no excuses!!!

As you know we’re a not for profit, volunteer organised conference, so we rely on sponsors to make things happen. Please spread the word, and if you want to sponsor us, let us know!

More news will come soon. Stay tuned to our twitter account.
