Hello Participants,

The tube stop is High Street Kensington on the Circle or District Line so please check the TFL site http://www.tfl.gov.uk/ for line status.

The Event

Registration will start around. 8:30 with doors opening around 09:00/09:30.

After the opening statement, Trey Ford will be delivering a keynote. The talks, workshops and rookie session will start after that. if you plan on attending a workshop please make sure that you check out the requirements and bring your equipment. If you have something to share or want to test the grounds at presenting your work try your hand at the lighting track.

At 14:00, the lighting track will be hosting a panel discussion with our community sponsor Women In Security in the Council Chamber. The panel will be on individual approaches to professional development for (not just) Women in IT Security with Berta Papp as moderator and 3 panelists.

Acumin will be hosting career and CV advice in the lower foyer so if you are in the job market or looking to improve you situation take some time to visit them.

Please remember to visit our sponsors as well. Some of Gold and community sponsors like Cigital, OWASP, Toool will be holding activities. These will be distributed across the event location in the upper and lower foyers.

In the great hall foyer, our 4 platinum sponsors will be hosting different events including some challenges where you can win stuff and refreshments. So take some time to visit MWR InfoSecurity, Nebulas, Tenable Network Security and KPMG.


Please remember that one of goals of us participants getting together on the day is to share, exchange, network and gain new knowledge. A key factor in this participation and that really depends on you... Welcome to the BSides hall-con.

To facilitate the continued discussion we will also be having a bar at the end of the day!

So come all and be merry and remember to network!

Enjoy and see you on Tuesday
