In March 2017 I visited Hannover in Germany for the Security BSides conference. My first Bsides. I had the opportunity to present one of my favourite subjects, how security can help business grow. The venue was nice, and the presentations were very interesting and some of them eye-opening. Overall I really enjoyed the conference; the setup and organisation was very good and all the participants were friendly. That helped having interesting discussions; always useful if you are eager to learn more things and see other peoples’ perspectives.
I strongly suggest any locals attend the next BSides Hannover conferences. I don’t think I’ll be going there again though, as the drive proved to be too much for me.
Although the trip was long, the organisers were very kind to help me forget about it, not only with their hospitality and friendliness, but also giving me a nice present, the Jim Beam bottle you can see in the picture.
Daniel if you’re reading this, I opened the bottle; great spirit! If you ever visit Prague, let me know, there may still be some left to share!
