BSides Prishtina 2022 is the very first BSides security conference in Kosova. The in-person event is taking place at the University of Prishtina in Kosova’s capital city of Prishtina.
Our initial plans to organize this conference in 2020 were delayed by the pandemic. But after organizing several virtual and in-person security meetups during this period, we are more ready than ever to be organizing BSides Prishtina for the local security community.
BSides Prishtina 2022 is the very first edition of BSides Prishtina and also Kosova’s first BSides security conference.
Kosova’s IT talent has been growing steadily over the last several years with a noticeable increase in information security students and professionals. After organizing several local InfoSec meetups over the last three years we decided it was time to organize a larger community event to gather and grow this talent. The BSides security conference format is our next step in building and promoting the growing information security community in Kosova and the surrounding Western Balkan region.
