BSides Charleston brings the unconference style to information security meet-ups. BSides is about making a conference of, by, and for the participants. Above all, though, we aim to create community, and to facilitate networking.

We like speakers, and welcome seasoned speakers to bring your best material to Charleston; however we specifically like new and local speakers. We like content, specifically new and emerging content.  BSides Charleston is about sharing material frankly, honestly, and directly, for the purpose of informing, educating, and continuing the conversation. All great ideas are welcome. 
Possible Topics

  • Physical Security
