About Us

BSidesLI is an information security conference that’s completely volunteer operated and organized.

BSidesLI Conference will be hosted at NYIT de Seversky Mansion with assistance from the university’s College of Engineering & Computing Sciences and the NYIT Entrepreneurship & Technology Innovation Center (ETIC) here on Long Island. By bringing the local security community together, BSides framework has created a global identity of community-driven security individuals working to build closer ties locally. By bringing a Bsides conference here to Long Island, we are helping to form a community of likeminded people who share similar attributes and are looking to expand their knowledge or strength by organizing with others of a shared affinity. The BsidesLI conference is completely set up, maintained, and managed by local volunteers within the community to bring the local security community even closer together and to continue the collaboration well after the event.
