B-Sides events combine security expertise from a variety of platforms in search of the “next big thing” in information security. B-Sides is an open platform that gives security experts and industry professionals the opportunity to share ideas, insights, and develop longstanding relationships with others in the community. It is a rare opportunity to directly connect and create trusted relationships with key members of the community.

B-Sides are free, community organized events put on by local individuals with the expressed goal of enabling a platform for information dissemination. B-Sides is an ‘unconference’ that follows the ‘open spaces’ format. This varies from structured presentations to smaller break-out groups, but both provide
a direct connection between speakers and the audience.

We're hosting a Capture The Flag (CTF) event again this year!

GoSecure has been hard at work building out some great challenges, and we look forward to sharing more details soon. Fortinet has graciously offered to provide all network equipment and configuration required for the CTF challenges. Please note, this is a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) event, so bring your tablet/laptop if you plan to participate. As with last year, snacks will be provided, and the drinks will be available for purchase at the bar.

There will be two rounds of competition this year, and registration will be open to either or both, for teams of 2-4 people. Each round will be separate, so feel free to participate at a level you're comfortable with. Start picking your team!

If you're interested in observing the CTF event, no registration is required!

As with any good challenge, we'll be offering some awesome prizes. Stay tuned for more details.

Never been to St. John's? Here are some fun facts!

St. John's is located along on the East Coast of Canada, on the northeast of the Avalon Peninsula in southeast Newfoundland. It is the most easterly city in North America.

Referred to as "North America's Oldest City", St. John's is the oldest settlement in North America to hold city status, with year-round settlement beginning sometime before 1620. The first transatlantic wireless transmission was also received in St. John's by Guglielmo Marconi on 12 December 1901. St. John's is very close to the Cape Spear National Historic Site which is the most easterly point in North America.
