CFP 2020


Share your Passion, Experience and Research


BSides NoVA aims to provide a diverse range of talks covering both conventional cybersecurity topics as well as emerging threats and technologies. Topics can range from completed or near-complete research, tool development, best practices, lessons learned and experiences. BSides conferences are designed to be conversations and should allow for interaction with the attendees, as lectures are nice from time to time, but new insights or ancillary work often comes from dialogue.

Why Should you consider presenting?

    • Increase the overall strength of our community by sharing your knowledge, best practices and experiences with peers and emerging professionals
    • Have the opportunity to share your interests and network with other like-minded individuals
    • Develop collaborative relationships and crowd source new ideas and solutions
  • Immediate feedback from your audience
