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, before returning to an in-person event in 2022, in the amazing venue where it all started - The Convention Centre Dublin. Security BSides Dublin 2023 will return to The Convention Centre Dublin on 27th May 2023 as an in-person event. We very much look forward to receiving your submission to our CFP process!
