Security BSides (commonly referred to as BSides) is a hacker convention (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hacker_convention), held amongst a growing eco-system of events in Australia and New Zealand that provide a community driven framework for information security conferences. BSides was co-founded by Mike Dahn, Jack Daniel, and Chris Nickerson in 2009. Due to overwhelming number of presentation submissions to Black Hat USA in 2009, the rejected presentations were presented to a smaller group of individuals - these became known as the BSides.
