BSides Newcastle is the weirdest InfoSec event out there. For our first event we held a 1 day event in a skate park and had a blast even though we were frozen. Last year we went virtual with a 2 day event with speakers from 4 continents. This year we go hybrid offering both the coverage of the virtual events and the opportunity for live events again.
This year we plan on running as a hybrid conference with one track streamed live on our IRL stage and one streaming live via our Virtual stage on gather.town .
This years swag plans will include a return of the BSidesNcl preserves and maybe a northern treat or two.
Sponsorship for this years event is now open. For info please get intouch via email firstname.lastname@example.org
