BSides Buffalo is a community-driven, grassroots technology conference supporting the Western New York community. It will be a one day event, on Saturday, June 3, 2023, in the recently-renovated Science Hall on the campus of Canisius College in Buffalo, NY.

Our goal is simple – to bring together technical students, hobbyists, and practitioners from across the area for a day of learning, networking, and professional development. This event will be an open and welcoming space for everyone from experienced CISOs and engineers with years of experience to new students and graduates looking to meet companies and leaders in the local information security community.

Please note: This is a live event. Priority will be given to speakers who are able to present to the audience in-person on June 3.
