BSidesAugusta holds an annual conference in the Fall with the goals of:
- Providing a safe platform for relevant and interesting talks
- Facilitating collaboration among professionals with diverse experience levels
- Keeping the per-attendee cost affordable
BSidesAugusta began in 2013 when Mark Baggett led a dedicated team of seven organizers to put on the first event of its type in the area. The event was a huge success, with about 175 attendees and two talk tracks of great speakers. It continued to grow, and in 2016 and 2017, BSidesAugusta hosted four talk tracks and 750 attendees from around the US and the globe.
