Security BSides Dubai. The Website is currently Under Contraction

Security BSides is a community-driven framework for building events by and for information security community members. These events are already happening in major cities all over the world! We are responsible for organizing an independent Security BSides-Approved event for Dubai, UAE.

The idea

The idea behind the Security BSides events is to organise an open (and low cost) Information Security conference where professionals, experts, researcher, and InfoSec enthusiasts come together to discuss the next "big thing".

BSides is not restricted only to ethical hacking, but instead the conference is open to a wide range of subjects related to security such as incident response, IoT security, computer forensics, security standards and of course compliance.

Our goal

To bring a well-known event to the InfoSec community in UAE, where professionals, academics and researchers can participate for free and educate themselves on various InfoSec related disciplines.

The event will also provide an opportunity to students, rookies and security enthusiasts to get involved and be heard in a worldwide exposed event. Professionals from all over the world will have the opportunity to meet and network during the conference.

Who is organising this event?

The short answer to this is YOU. This is what makes these events so successful and a unique experience. Security BSides events are organized: the community, for the community

Behind the scenes to drive the event are a number of people, professionals in the area of Information Security, who decided to take the first steps and bring this global event in UAE.

Our sponsors, our volunteers, our community supporters, our speakers, our delegates and more importantly you. Support this initiative to have a Security BSides event in Dubai.
