Security BSides Dublin 2021

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, and let's not talk about 2020! Given the current outlook for in-person events, we have decided to bring our Security BSides Dublin 2021 event to the community as an exclusively online event. We are exploring all sorts of interesting ideas to make this a truly exciting and engaging event.
