Event wrap-up
We'd like to thank all of our attendees for attending and making BSidesCharm as wildly popular as it is. We posted record numbers this year with over 600 people in attendance in only our second year. Please take the time to complete our conference survey to tell us how to improve for 2017!

Earn prizes from applying your experience!
Cons are great places to meet people and learn new things. But now that the con is over, it becomes not just what you learned, but what you do with what you learned that increases the success of the con... and justifies expensing this trip to your boss.
So here's your chance to show off. Take something you've learned at BSidesCharm 2016, apply it at your job or in your life and then tell us about it. A crack panel of judges will read through then entries to determine which entrants applied the knowledge learned most effectively and with the most impact on security. The winners will get prizes! The rules are simple, we need a 1-2 page entry discussing:

  1. What you learned and where you learned it (in a talk session, during hallcon, in one of the classes).
  2. How you implemented what you learned.
  3. What was or what will be the impact (process improvement, faster pwnage, better monitoring, cost savings, etc.) More than one is okay. 
  4. Lessons learned in the process.
You can sign up by sending email to and final submissions are due June 30th!

Winners will be announced July 31st.


Local Road Construction

posted Apr 22, 2016, 7:05 AM by Brian Baskin

For the entirety of the event Baltimore will be performing road construction outside of the Baltimore Convention Center. This affects I-395N into the city around Camden Yards. This should have no major impact. There will be an established detour to get you to the Convention Center.

Follow I-395 N but take the MLK Blvd exit. At the second light make a right on Pratt St and you'll arrive along the backside of the Convention Center. Alternatively, you can take 295 (B/W Pkway) straight into the city. Follow your GPS's re-routing if unsure.
