BSides Riyadh 2018 is the first BSides event taking place in Riyadh and also in Saudi Arabia. There is a clear shortage in Technical conferences in the region which is one of reasons for organizing this event. The aim of BSides Riyadh is to create a local information security community in order to achieve the following:
Create a medium to share knowledge in different areas within Information Security.
Provide a different experience compared to marketing-based conferences.
Share knowledge related to the Saudi security landscape.
Have fun :-)
BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by information security community members. The goal is to share knowledge and understanding through conversation by creating opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an family-like atmosphere that encourages discussion and collaboration. It is an intense event with discussions, workshops, and interaction from participants.
