Black & Gold Badge
DEF CON has the Black Badge for the world's elite hackers. DerbyCon similarly has a Black Badge. We're Pittsburgh. We've gone black and gold! The BSides Pittsburgh Black & Gold Badge is awarded to Pittsburgh info-sec people that we feel have gone above and beyond for the local security community.
- 2017: Our second Black & Gold Badge was for Kevin Gennuso / @KevvyG. Kevin has been a long time Pittsburgh evangelist, contributing/speaking at dozens of regional events over the years.
- 2016: Our inaugural Black & Gold Badge was for Dan Klinedinst / @DKlinedinst for his instrumental work founding and developing the BSides Pittsburgh conference.
