Corona Virus (COVID-19)

Corona Virus (COVID-19)

Update: 15 August 2020

 The BSidesKC organizers, like many of you, have been tracking the COVID-19 situation over the past several months. With careful consideration of the health crisis, travel restrictions, and the general safety of our hacker family, we’ve decided to postpone our annual event until further notice.
All tickets will be honored for the 2021 event including electronic badges. If you’ve registered for a training, we’re currently working with each presenter to hold their class virtually and we will be in touch separately about each individual training.
We deeply appreciate everyone coming together in such an unprecedented way to curb the virus. We will continue to provide updates as they become available. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Stay safe and healthy, 
The BSidesKC 2020 Organizing Committee

Update: 16 March 2020

On Sunday, March 15th the BSidesKC board made a unanimous decision to postpone our event on May 8th/9th to October 16th/17th. This was a hard decision, but certainly not a difficult one. The health and safety of everyone involved with our BSidesKC community is our top priority. Please continue watching our website, www.bsideskc.org, and follow our social media channels for new information regarding any additional updates.

The health and overall safety of our BSidesKC attendees/family is extremely important to us. The BSidesKC team is actively monitoring the situation as it relates the Corona Virus/COVID-19. Currently, there are no plans to postpone or cancel the BSidesKC conference on May 8th and 9th, 2020. However, we will continue to monitor the situation as new information regarding travel, hosting large events in the Kansas City metro area, and recommendations from health experts such as the KS and MO health departments and the Center for Disease Control becomes available.

 If BSidesKC is postponed for later this year (not cancelled), we will not issue refunds. In the event BSidesKC 2020 is cancelled, existing tickets will be honored for the 2021 conference. We will also allow for full refunds in the event of cancellation. Those refund requests need to be communicated to the BSidesKC staff via the email below.

Questions or concerns should be directed to info@bsideskc.org.
