What is BSides Hunstville?

In this launched edition of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Paul Coggin joins me to discuss BSides Hunstville.

Paul (@PaulCoggin) is the founder and organizer of BSides Hunstville (@BSidesHSV). I will be attending the conference for the first time this year. The conference is in it's fifth year of existence. In our discussion I found something unique about the conference. Paul doesn't deal with sponsors like some other BSides conferences. Which isn't a bad thing and I'm interested to see how that plays out in talks and networking opportunities. The lineup of speakers looks fantastic. Tickets are still available and I encourage people to check it out.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What is BSides?
  • How BSides Hunstville got started?
  • What is unique about the conference?
  • Why Huntsville is a prime place for a BSides?
