The Roanoke Information Security Exchange and Noke Codes in partnership with Virginia Western Community College are happy to announce the inaugural Security BSides event in the Roanoke region!

So what is BSides? BSides is a community-driven event for and by information security community members. The goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time. It creates opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. It is where conversations about the next-big-thing are happening.

We are currently excepting discussion topics and sponsors. The schedule will be finalized by April 20th. In the meantime, thousands of people have attended and written about their experience at BSides events. Read more at:

The event takes place July 11. Deadline for Call for Proposals is May 30.
