BSides Oslo 2020
Postponed until November 2020, see information below

Covid-19 Information

Due to growing concerns surrounding the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus, we've decided to postpone BSides 2020 until November.

This decision does not come lightly and we've been monitoring the situation closely for the last few week. Even though our event is small the health, safety and well-being of our patrons is paramount. We will continue working with our sponsors, partners and the community to make sure the conference will be worth the wait.

We won't be cancelling tickets, and we thank you for your continued support. Information about our refund policy is available here. If you have any questions surrounding this decision, just e-mail us.

The BSidesOslo team are members of the local infosec community who felt the need for an accessible, inclusive event that is focused on learning and sharing. The BSides framework is a perfect fit. While individual BSides events have a focus on serving and representing their local communities, adopting this framework also ties us to an international network of diverse, independent events that seek to create opportunities to advance the infosec conversation beyond the mainstream.
