BSidesCharm is a regional Security BSides held in the Baltimore region of Maryland. It operates under the umbrella principles of Security BSides as a larger community project within information security. BSides aims to offer small, intimate events where all participants can engage each other to help develop connections, friendships, and network with different industry professionals.
We recognize the value of engaging a smaller audience and being the big fish in a small pond. Every organization will have different goals and priorities, so we offer different levels of participation for every individual, group, or organization. We specifically designed several different options for any sized organization to participate in and support this event.
