BSidesLV has ended
Thank you for joining us for our 5th Anniversary celebration! We certainly hope you enjoy the conference. Here’s to Education, Collaboration, and Community!

Remember, we don’t take ourselves too seriously and you shouldn’t, either! To quote the old motto of another collaborative community, "We trick into learning with a laugh".

We wish you both laughter and learning - and lots of both!

Take a scientific look at information security incidents reported in the public news sources.  This talk introduces the VERIS Community Database (VCDB), a research project aimed at gathering news articles about information security incidents, extracting data, and serving as a public repository of breach data suitable for analysis and research.  We will discuss how to apply the methodology of the Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) to public data to answer research questions, and how this view of information security incidents differs from the DBIR.
