About the Event:

This will be the first BSides in Charleston.  With the eclectic businesses and people from the Lowcountry, we expect to have an outstanding event that will be fun, educational and inspirational for all.

A combination of students, professionals, geeks and tinkerers gathering to discuss Information Security, hear awesome talks and bring security into our everyday lives.  Our mission is to provide an inclusive, inspiring and motivational environment to discuss and collaborate on information security and how it inspires, interests and motivates you.

BSides Charleston's location in beautiful downtown Charleston, SC brings together many industries and academic institutions opening up both students and businesses to your message and beyond vendor booths.

BSides Charleston takes your engagement beyond passing out swag, goodies, and tchotchkes, our sponsors send technical staff and thought leaders who discuss real world problems and offer practical solutions.

Be prepared to be a part of the conference, sharing ideas, meeting people, and interacting with the local community. Be prepared to be blown away by BSides Charleston.

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:

  • Operational Security
  • Physical Security
  • Attack Defense
  • Attack Identification
  • Forensic Response
  • Cloud Security
  • Writing robust code. Rugged, even
  • Practical Application Security
  • Whatever cool hackery you are up to
  • Achieving security while maintaining compliance
  • Exploitation and education, better than peanut butter and chocolate

Each BSides 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. It is where conversations for the next-big-thing are happening. You don’t want to miss it!

If you have any thoughts, comments, complaints, suggestions or would like to volunteer, let us know.  Follow us on twitter @BSidesCHS to keep up with the latest information or send an email to BSidesCHS(at)
