Boston Security Meetup Pages

Welcome to the Boston Security Meetup (BSM)!
We put this meetup together for InfoSec professionals to have a safe place to come meet like-minded people, share cool ideas, and discuss real issues. Content is in the form of 2-3 community-driven lightning talks (10-20 minutes), with breaks to meet and chat in-between. We aim for content to conclude between 8:15 and 8:30 PM, but will just go with the flow.

Vendor-Free Policy:
BSM is a vendor-free environment. All talks given through BSM must be sent to the BSM organizers before the event (in the form of abstracts or slides) for approval - this includes talks given through other organizations partnering with BSM. BSM organizers reserve the right to pull from the stage any talk deemed to be advertising a product, service or company as its primary purpose. This also applies to talks solely for recruiting purposes: while we encourage individuals to plug their company to job seekers during networking periods, talks are meant to encourage knowledge sharing, and not a free advertisement.

Code of Conduct
(based on DEFCON code of conduct):
Boston Security Meetup (BSM) provides a forum for open discussion between participants, where radical viewpoints are welcome and a high degree of skepticism is expected. However, insulting or harassing other participants is unacceptable. We want BSM to be a safe and productive environment for everyone. It’s not about what you look like but what’s in your mind and how you present yourself that counts at BSM.

We do not condone harassment against any participant, for any reason. Harassment includes deliberate intimidation and targeting individuals in a manner that makes them feel uncomfortable, unwelcome, or afraid. BSM also does not condone disorderly conduct (i.e. drunkenness or other conduct that affects others' abilities to enjoy the event).

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior or disorderly conduct are expected to comply immediately. We reserve the right to respond to harassment in the manner we deem appropriate, including but not limited to:

- immediate removal from a BSM event,
- a “cool-off” period during which the participant is barred from attending BSM events,
- deactivation of the participant’s infosec-boston slack account, or
- total ban from future BSM events.


In addition, BSM will share information about offenders with other local meetups and conferences in real time to discourage these individuals from being included in other events.

This Code of Conduct applies to everyone participating at or organizing BSM. Anyone can report harassment. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, you can contact an organizer.

BSM organizers will be happy to help participants contact security, local law enforcement, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of BSM. Remember: BSM is what you make of it, and as a community we can create a great experience for everyone.
