SBA supports BSides 2019

Supporting BSides enables us to emphasize the emerging need for IT-Security in Austria and Europe.

BSides features a series of international events promoting independent security research and education as well as discourse and collaboration within the community. Bringing this year´s edition to Vienna provided a great opportunity to raise the national status in the international research community.

The famous “hallway track” was once again co-located with the main conference. All corresponding sessions are traditionally being held in a casual atmosphere and are moreover free of charge. This format allows to mingle and catch up. It also creates great opportunities for a continuous extension of the scientific network as well as ongoing impact creation.
