    Announcing the Cyber Security Conference BSides Raleigh 2014!

    BSides Raleigh is a community-driven framework for building events 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.

    This event is bringing together thought leaders, researchers and technical experts from many different organizations. Dan Kaminski, a well-known security researcher, will be one of the featured speakers at BSides Raleigh!

    Security is top of mind across the entire sphere of IT and the world beyond. Therefore, more people and organizations are interested in the next new thing in security. Security BSides is the place where these people come to collaborate, learn and share.

    The security landscape is continuously changing. Today’s cutting-edge exploits are custom-written, stealthy threats that evade traditional security perimeter defenses. It is becoming increasingly important in the modern world for the security community to come together and collaborate more closely to discuss how to stay ahead of the bad guys and new threats.

    The Research Triangle area has a history of entrepreneurship and innovation, in addition to being the home to offices and headquarters of major technology companies. With so many tech companies, colleges, and universities, this area is fast becoming an international center of innovation in the security industry. Subsequently, the Research Triangle is now the host of highly technical cyber security conferences and gatherings.

    BSides Raleigh will take place on October 17th at Raleighwood Cinema, Raleigh North Carolina. More details at:
