BSides St John's 2012

I was requested by the event organizer to setup a static page of the event info. It appears that many offices in town have troubles accessing the BSides site, so this page just mirrors that pages' content.



Steering you through the Security Fog


Event details

What is a BSides Conference and what should I expect?:

BSides 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.

The BSidesStJohns2011 event was a great success and we hope to be bigger and better this years.

Where is St. John's?

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. 

George Street has the most bars and pubs per square foot of any street in North America, and is known to have bars that are open later than most others throughout Canada.
