What is BSides Augusta?

In this episode of the Exploring Information Security (EIS) podcast, I talk with one of the organizers of BSides Augusta, Doug Burks.

2015 will be the third year for the security conference and it looks to be even bigger and better than last year. This year the conference features a two blue team tracks, a red team track, CTF challenge, a lock pick village, and much more.  Doug also talked about his own conference that leads into BSides Augusta, the Security Onion conference. BSides Augusta is sold out, but the Security Onion conference still has tickets available.
