Why Volunteer for BSidesLV?

We’re a volunteer organized event, put on by and for the community, and we truly strive to keep information free. One thing that makes us different from a lot of events like ours is we don’t charge to the public to attend BSidesLV. Our costs are covered by our generous donors and sponsors, who share our vision of free dissemination of information, and we rely on Volunteers to help make the conference a success. We see the people who come to BSidesLV as participants, instead of attendees, who share our goal to foster growth & community in the InfoSec World.

We need good, reliable folks. We have Volunteer opportunities for load-in/set-up all the way through load-out/tear-down, Monday through Thursday the week of the conference.



No experience required, we will teach you everything you need to know about the position you volunteer for.

General Volunteers must be at least 16 years old with a parent on site and permission given. Exceptions can be made for younger children working with their parents (both have to volunteer for and work the shift). Please reach out to before signing up to make arrangements.

Safety Operations Volunteers must be 18 years old.

Volunteers are required to signup for a minimum of 12 hours.


Positions Available

General Volunteers range from helping to run A/V equipment, escorting speakers, general setup, introducing speakers, selling t-shirts, assisting the lockpick village, and many more.

Safety Operations is the team that helps us enforce fire codes, direct participants to the room they’re looking for, help keep the flow of foot traffic going, recieve Code of Conduct reports, ensure folks aren’t in off-limits areas, keep a watchful eye on our assets, and more, all with a smile and a helping attitude. Everyone is welcome, we aren’t guarding Nukes.
