On April 19-20 the BSides organization held the 6th Annual BSides San Francisco event. The event was amazing. The range of people, topics, and interactions were incredible. If you have not read up on BSides, take a quick peek now. This organization is doing #infosec right – BSides
I was very fortunate to be asked by BSides to speak on Day 2 about HIPAA.
