How did we choose the speakers? Call for Papers (CFP) for BSides Tallinn 2023 was open from May to August. We received very intresting submissions across many subdisciplines and handed over the hard work of choosing the speakers to our CFP board. We've invited people with different background to our CFP board to make sure they choose talks based on what could be interesting and useful to the community.

Board members in alphabetical order: Sille Arikas (Clarified Security), Andres Elliku (Wise), Tiit Hallas (Dynatrace), Indrek Korela (Tallinna Sadam), Mai Kraft (Elisa), Aigar Käis (Telia, board lead), Merike Käo (Doubleshotsecurity), Triin Palts (Tele2).

After the successful BSides Tallinn events in 2021 and 2022, the event is back again this year. BSides is a worldwide infosec event, organized by the local infosec community in every city it is held. BSides Tallinn is organized by a non-profit core-team, volunteers and sponsors. One distinguished element of all BSides events is that the talks on the stage are proposed by anyone and selected by a program committee consisting of local infosec gurus.

What is the content of BSides? Talks, presentations, demos, proof-of-concepts across a very broad spectrum of infosec topics. All of the content is proposed by community members. Final talks will be picked by a committee of professionals representing the organizers, private companies, academia, the state, freelancers.

But it is not just the smart stuff on stage. Almost as important (or maybe even more) is the informal part where you get to know other people.
