Digital Overdose is proud to announce that we are running a free online conference!
What will be spoken about? Information Security, Cybersecurity, OSINT, DevOps, Tech in general... Everything is on the table.
The catch? The only people able to speak there are rookies. Rookies not necessarily in the sense that they are new to Information Security, but more specifically in the sense that they've never had the experience of talking at a conference previously!
With the number of conventions with rookie tracks that have been cancelled, focusing specifically on rookies lets them have all of the well-deserved limelight, and helps foster the next generation of representatives of the community.
So if you're free on the 17th and 18th of April (2021), then save the date !
The conference will be free for anyone to attend.
Approximately one month before the event, we will open an EventBrite where you can optionally acquire a ticket (for interest metrics only).
Our community is the most active on Discord, so if you want you can pop in and tell us "Hi"!
The stream of the conference will be publicly hosted on our YouTube channel, and if you miss a talk or a few, we will have the recordings up as fast as possible in the days following the event, with links to them on this page.
So we've managed to pique your interest? That's awesome!
To make it nice and simple, we're thinking of 30 minute talks (25 minutes for the actual talk and 5 minutes for a Q&A).
And in the interest of making thinking about it as painless as possible, your proposal can be as simple as:
We will then forward the first three elements (and nothing more) to a blind panel, to make sure that everyone gets a fair shot at speaking for the first time!
In order to provide our speakers with well-deserved conference "swag" and its shipping, organizations can choose to sponsor the event at a flat rate, in exchange for shoutouts during the conference and their logos appearing on the stream as well as potential wearable merchandise.
The use of this sponsorship money will be 100% to cover the costs of swag, and we will publish a detailed public notice for the sake transparency
