Our Security Advocates

a unique security conference

April 17, 2018 | San Francisco





OUR Security Advocates highlights a diverse set of experts from across information security, safety, trust, and other related fields.


OURSA is a single-track, one-day conference with four topic sessions. In each session, you'll hear short talks from multiple experts followed by a moderated discussion. Our session topics are:

Advocating for High-Risk Groups | Chair: Adrienne Porter Felt

Applied Security Engineering | Chair: Aanchal Gupta

Practical Privacy Protection | Chair: Lea Kissner

Security Policy & Ethics for Emerging Tech | Chair: Amie Stepanovich

If you have a short talk that you believe would contribute to one of these topics, please let us know via this form. We will be filling the agenda on a rolling basis and updating this site over the next several weeks.


General admission tickets are $100, and students with valid ID can attend for $20. 

We believe it is important to charge so that we can ensure that our limited seating is utilized. Thanks to Cloudflare and our other sponsors, all ticket proceeds will be donated to non-profits that support diverse voices in security.

Since we have limited seating, we kindly ask all ticket holders to arrive on time and stay for the entire event. Tickets that are not used in the first thirty minutes of the event will be given to another on a first-come/first-served basis without refund.

The details

OUR Security Advocates is dedicated to a harassment-free conference experience for everyone. Our anti-harassment policy can be found here.

A mothers' room will be provided. If you need any other accommodations please contact us at info@oursa.org

We know that many more people will be interested in the content than can attend in person, and we are investigating options for live streaming. Parking near the event will be very limited, so we strongly recommend taking public transit or ride-sharing.

Please follow us on Twitter (@oursaconference) or Facebook (/oursaconference) for updates.
