BSidesLondon – Mentors wanted!

Published on February 14, 2020 By René Pfeiffer

You may have heard of the BSides London Rookie Track. It’s the track with the 15 minutes presentation slots where people who have never presented at a security conference before can give it a try. Take me word for it, preparing these 15 minutes is hard work. Even if you had your share of presentations […]

The fine Art of Mentorship

Published on March 8, 2019 By René Pfeiffer

We will support the Rookie Track at BSidesLondon in 2019 again. This is a perfect way for rookies to get started on presenting at a conference. However it is much more – the stages before the presentation is held. Preparing for 15 minutes of talk will keep you busy for ten or twenty times the […]

Supporting BSidesLondon “My Machine is not Learning” 2019

Published on February 14, 2019 By René Pfeiffer

This year’s BSidesLondon is pondering the most important question of machine learning. What is my machine doing and learning? Well, it might be that “My Machine is not Learning” at all.

BSidesLondon 2018 Rookie Track Follow-Up

Published on June 8, 2018 By René Pfeiffer

We would like to share some impressions about the BSidesLondon 2018 Rookie Track presentations. It gets hard and harder to tell which one of the talks is the best.

BSidesLondon 2017 – Sharing is indeed Caring

Published on June 20, 2017 By René Pfeiffer

When airport security meets information security it’s usually BSidesLondon time. It was a great experience. And since DeepSec sponsors the Rookie Track we had a very tough decision to make.

BSidesLND2016 Rookie Track Review

Published on June 11, 2016 By René Pfeiffer

Sitting through the Rookie Track at BSidesLondon is something we really enjoy. This year the quality of the presentations was amazing.
