Security BSides NoVA 2017 Retrospective

I must be doing something right because they keep sending me to security conferences.


After going to ShmooCon last month, I got the opportunity to attend the inaugural Security BSides Northern Virginia conference on February 25. As a 1 day event, it was pleasantly brief and packed a lot of talks without requiring me to commit a full weekend. Also, it took place in Herndon, which is pretty easy to get to and didn’t require a trip on the DC metro.

Like with ShmooCon, I made a list of things that stood out to me at the conference.

Overall it was a fun conference. Most of the talks were aimed at a broader audience so it was highly accessible for all levels of experience. I definitely plan on returning.
