BSides Ottawa 2019 starts in

About the Event

Security BSides Ottawa is a grassroots-driven conference that provides an open platform for security experts, industry professionals and everyone with an interest in security to share ideas and insights and to connect with the community. Security BSides Ottawa provides an opportunity to directly connect and create trusted relationships with key members of the Ottawa security community from the municipal, federal, and private sectors.

Security BSides was born from the need to share information and create a community that would not be subject to the restrictions of traditional conferences. Security BSides gives equal opportunity to all speakers, regardless of their personal popularity. More importantly, Security BSides gives equal opportunity to potential participants regardless of their wallet size or expense account because it is 100% supported by sponsors and volunteers.

Presentation Schedule

The schedule will be updated after the call for paper closes.
  • Day 1

  • Machine learning has gained a lot of hype and has become a buzz word in the last couple of years, and purports to solve many of the challenges facing the cyber security community. However, there has been many hype cycles that have never delivered. This presentation will cover what recent advances has occurred in Machine Learning, what do these advances mean to the cyber security community, what changes need to be made to cyber risk assessments, how can one “hack” Machine Learning algorithms and what are the geopolitical events that could drive the direction and funding of Machine Learning in the foreseeable future.
