BSidesOttawa Schedule Confirmed!

B-Sides Ottawa is fast approaching and today we can share the schedule of superb talks that cover a broad spectrum of Information Security subjects. We had an amazing set of talk submissions from speakers, both local and from around North America. Narowing the over 25 talks to fit the two day event was no easy task!

If you are interested in attending B-Sides Ottawa, the event is filling up fast, so please register (it's free!) by visiting the official site.

We are still looking for sponsors to support the event, if you know someone who may be interested, please have them contact
