Call for Presentations 2018


We invite CFP submissions for BSides London 2018, to be held on the 6th June, 2018 in London, UK.

This year our focus will be on a theme that has been on the forefront of InfoSec in the last year, with 2017 having some of the most spectacular and most widely reported breaches in history.

With that in mind, for BSides London we present :
