What & Why

BSides Knoxville is a security conference in the spirit of Security BSides; our goals are simple:

  • Provide a relaxed, comfortable environment.
  • Present useful, interesting information.
  • Help people connect with old friends and make new ones.

While our focus is information security, the information presented may be on varying topics of interest to the infosec / hacker (yes, this word has many meanings) community.

This event being produced by the community, for the benefit of the community; all decisions made, all actions we take are made with that in mind.

The idea was hatched as part of a Twitter conversation between Adam Caudill and Adrian Sanabria; since then we have been planning and coordination to make this a reality.

Hosting is graciously provided by Shackle Labs.
