BSidesPhilly aims to provide a diverse range of talks covering both conventional cybersecurity topics as well as emerging threats and technologies. There will be multiple tracks for talks. Topics can range from completed or near-complete research, tool development, best practices, lessons learned and experiences. BSides conferences are designed to be “conversations” and should allow for interaction with the attendees, as lectures are nice from time to time, but new insights or ancillary work often comes from dialogue.
