What is Security B-Sides MSP?

Minnesota's FREE Information Security Conference

  • Our goal is to build security awareness multipliers, engaging educational presentations over a wide range of technology and security related topics with actionable take aways and hands-on exercises.
  • Attracting a community of individuals and groups with the common goal of improving the safe use of technology and the internet, that otherwise would not participate in these discussions by eliminating cost and outreach barriers.
  • Creating opportunities for recruiting & employment, fueling entrepreneurship, driving research, connecting passionate participants with mentors, and supporting educational initiatives.
