BSides Málaga Code of Conduct

Our code of conduct is based in simple principles: “Show respect and tolerance for each other’s uniqueness. Be kind and practice the golden rule.”

BSides Málaga is dedicated to providing a safe, constructive, inclusive and pleasant atmosphere for everyone. We encourage all participants to make each other feel welcome and included in activities throughout the conference.

Not accepted behaviour includes, but is not limited to:

  • Discriminatory jokes and language
  • Posting or displaying sexually explicit or violent material
  • Posting (or threatening to post) other people’s personally identifying information (“doxing”)
  • Personal insults, particularly those related to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, or disability
  • Repeated harassment of others.
  • Violence, threats of violence, or violent language directed against another person
  • Sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, or otherwise discriminatory jokes and language
  • Inappropriate photography or recording
  • Unwelcome sexual attention, including sexualized comments or jokes, inappropriate messaging, language, touching, groping, and unwelcome sexual advances
  • Deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following (online or in-person)
  • Sustained disruption of community events, including talks and presentations
  • Denigration or insults based on political beliefs or ideology
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior

In general, if someone asks you to stop, then stop inmediately.

If someone is engaging with you in a way that makes you afraid or uncomfortable during an event, please inform a member of the organization or any of our volunteers, wearing a BSides (purple) or Virustotal/Google tee. They are trained in following an escalation path and will help determine the next steps for you to feel safe and ensure your concerns are promptly addressed.

If you are engaging in bad behavior, you will be given a warning that your behavior is not acceptable. If you continue, you will be asked to leave or, if the behavior is particularly egregious, you may be immediately ejected from the conference and proper authorities notified.
