About the event

BSidesPorto aims to be a recurrent computer security event in Porto, the major city in the northern part of Portugal. This initiative was triggered by the need of such an event in a city full of computer security ninjas, gurus and the like. Especially if one considers the recurring cancellations and postponing of BSides events all over the world, including BSidesLisbon, to happen in 2020.

So, to helps us endure 2020 and its lack of computer security events, we have decided to promote the first BSidesPorto event in 2020, completely online! BSidesPorto is an event that will provide a platform for first-time speakers, students, new and experienced professionals to present their work in a friendly and welcoming environment. We welcome all participants.

Security BSides events are hosted all over the world and are community driven conferences. This also means that the conference will be what every attendee makes of it. So the success of the event will depend on your active participation, give a talk (in English). If you feel you can help, send us a line with your ideias!
