COVID-19 Response

Friday, MarCH 13, 2020

In response to declarations of risk as well as public health restrictions on mass gatherings within the Province of Alberta (link), BSides Calgary is monitoring the spread of COVID-19 both locally and globally. We strongly believe that BSides Calgary is an event crucial to the cyber security community within southern Alberta and want to bring a safe, and valuable, event to all attendees.

As such, we are reserving the time between now and April 2nd, 2020 to review the situation and determine the best and most appropriate path forward for the event. We will be postponing the conference to a later date within 2020. We will be taking this time to engage with and determine plans of action with all stakeholders; our host institution, sponsors, trainers, vendors, speakers, volunteers and attendees. At that time we plan to have another communication out to the public.

Please bear with us as we try to bring the best (and safest) event to you. Stay tuned to this website, and the official BSides Calgary Twitter account @bsides_calgary for further updates.
