A leading infosec event within the Australian cybersecurity community, over the years, BSides Melbourne has become a favourite among industry professionals. Adopting a welcoming and friendly environment, young professionals and newcomers, including students, are welcome to learn, share and network at this not-for-profit event.
In this arena, researchers are encouraged to share their work and its findings as a valuable learning opportunity for all.
As we’re in the habit of saying, information sharing is something that excites us tremendously. If this is something we can facilitate, right here in Australia, we find it hard to not get involved - the learning and teaching opportunities are too great to miss out on.
What’s particularly amazing about this year’s event is that 100% of ticket revenue will go towards the Victorian Bushfire Appeal.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AT BSIDES MELBOURNE?
This year, the conversations, presentations, and exhibitions lined up for participants cover the breadth of innovations, challenges, and trends in the cybersecurity field. Given its community focus, you can expect a region-centric approach to the subjects broached at this novel infosec event.
From malicious WiFi hardware to breaking hard drive encrypted enclosures, there are briefings from various niches within the industry. Each session is led by experienced professionals in the field, allowing participants to get first-hand knowledge on some of the most important matters we will encounter in 2020.
Indeed, as global cybersecurity environments become more complex, sophisticated and precarious, these types of events are incredibly important. Especially when it comes to the newer types of attacks we’re experiencing at present, information sharing can help us avert these crises before they arrive at our doorstep.

TRISKELE LABS - A PARTNER IN ALL THINGS CYBERSECURITY
At Triskele Labs, our goal is to become a facilitator of knowledge-sharing and relationship-building in the industry. It’s for this reason that we collaborate with infosec events like BSides Melbourne and are even a part of CRESTCon 2020.
In addition to the work we undertake on a daily basis for companies across Australia, which include the provision of novel cybersecurity solutions like SOAR, we’re also very committed to helping all industry insiders become true experts in what they do.
We also love a good learning opportunity and are thrilled that newcomers and students are warmly welcomed at the BSides Melbourne event.
Our Triskele Labs team will also be present at the event and we encourage you to come and have a chat with us about anything and everything related to cybersecurity - we’re always excited to see new faces and make mutually fulfilling connections.

WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THIS INFOSEC EVENT?
While there are many infosec events you can attend - not just in Australia, but around the world as well - BSides Melbourne’s tight-knit community approach is truly a novel experience. In fact, it’s organised by a group of ‘infosec friends’ with more than 20 years behind them.
This approach ensures that dynamic discussions dominate each of the sessions; there are no long-winding monologues or debates including just a few security experts.
It’s for this reason that we’re proud to be a sponsor alongside a number of notable businesses and organisations including ANZ, Vectra, PwC, Stone & Chalk, LaunchVic and more.
MEET US AT BSIDES MELBOURNE ON THE 13TH AND 14TH OF MARCH 2020!
