Security BSides is a community-driven framework for building events, by and for information security community members. These events happen throughout each year in major cities all around the World! We are a BSides-Approved event for Ireland, based in Dublin. Our inaugural event took place in 2019. In 2021 we hosted a hugely successful virtual event. This time around for 2022 we are going back to an in-person event, in the amazing venue where it all started - The Convention Centre Dublin on 19th March 2022. We can't wait to see you all again in-person, and we look forward to receiving your submission to our CFP process!
