I was one of the organizers again this year, helping to organize and manage the registration and check-in for the conference at the Baltimore Convention Center. I think we are definitely doing well – this year went really smoothly and the party on Saturday night was a blast. The keynotes were given by Rob Lee from Dragos and Jim Christy from Cymmetria. Rob talked about challenges securing industrial control systems (ICS) and Jim spoke on cybersecurity and crime. (His anecdote on congress and “cyber” was awesome!)
If you missed the con this year, check out some of the talks over at YouTube. If you will be in Maryland next spring, I highly recommend you register as soon as you can for BSidesCharm 2018. Tickets always sell out within the first few hours. As soon as you see the registration go live, sign up fast!
