As we continue to follow the events of Covid-19, the guidance from our local CDC and local government we know we are treading in uncharted waters. We want to ensure that we are not only successful in presenting valuable content, but also successful in protecting the safety of our sponsors, presenters and participants.
To that end, after consulting with our sponsors and Virginia Western Community College, we have decided to postpone BSidesROA to May 22nd, 2021. I know like us that many of you were very excited to participate in the inaugural BSidesROA event this year, and like you we hate that we are having to postpone. However, we will be back next year bigger and better! Rest assured that all tickets that have been purchased in 2020 will be valid for the new date in 2021. Please continue to stay safe as we navigate this unusual situation.
Please feel free to reach out to us at any time via our email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via our website at bsidesroa.org. We look forward to seeing all of you in May 2021.
Your BSidesROA Planning Team
Update: Due to the BSides Roanoke 2020 being postponed to July 11, the Call for Papers deadline has been extended to May 30th!
Here’s your chance to be a part of the inaugural Security BSides event in the Roanoke region! BSides Roanoke announces Call for Papers (CFP) for our event occurring May 30th at Virginia Western Community College. We encourage all interested InfoSec professionals to submit their proposals for a 45-minute talk. The conference aims to include a mix of intermediate-to-advanced technical and concept/research based discussions. Get those proposals in! If you have any questions about the CFP or BSides Roanoke 2020 give us an email at email@example.com.
Congratulations to Keith Swagler for his winning submission to the BSides Roanoke logo contest! We liked the simplicity of design, incorporation of the Roanoke Star, and following the general theme of other Security BSides event logos. Keith will enjoy some bragging rights as well as a new Yubikey 5 NFC.
In case you’ve missed our last couple of meetings, RISE is committing significant time and sweat to planning the first Security BSides in the Roanoke area. We plan to present BSides Roanoke in May 2020!
Here is your opportunity to support your favorite local InfoSec group and make an impact on the premier of BSides Roanoke 2020!
