BSidesNola Code of Conduct



The BSidesNola code of conduct supports equitable access to information.  To ensure effective and equitable enforcement of this code of conduct, the BSidesNola Organizers will enforce the code of conduct consistently and in a manner that does not reinforce or increase marginalization or oppression of any group based on age, race, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, cultural observance, income, or body type/size.

Our values are the following.

Our code of conduct is designed to accomplish several goals.

Code of Conduct

1 Basic Principle

The basic principle of our Code of Conduct is harmony.  

Our code of conduct is based on the reduction or elimination of disruption to presenters, individual attendees, sponsors, support staff, venue, and the operations of the conference.

We’re all here to have a good time and learn something.

2 Attendees Must

3 Attendees May

4 Attendees Cannot

5 Enforcement

BSidesNola Organizers reserve the right to request any action be taken by any attendee to reduce or eliminate disruption at the event.

Rules are subject to arbitrary change, addition, and interpretation without notice of any kind if deemed necessary by BSidesNola Organizers.


BSidesNola has reporting procedures for handling a violation of this code of conduct.

You can report a problem or seek assistance in one of the following ways.

When taking a report, the Organizers will ensure you are safe and cannot be overheard. They may involve other Organizers to ensure your report is managed properly. Once safe, we’ll ask you to tell us about what happened. This can be upsetting, but we’ll handle it as respectfully as possible, and you can bring someone to support you. You won’t be asked to confront anyone, and we won’t tell anyone who you are.

Our team will be happy to help you contact local law enforcement, local support services, provide escorts, or otherwise assist you in feeling safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.
