Statement regarding myself & PasswordsCon @ BSidesLV, July 25-26:
I have decided not to go to Las Vegas this year due to what is happening in the US right now.
As a Norwegian I can pretty much go anywhere in the world without fear based on my country of origin. It troubles me deeply that people - refugees - are excluded solely on their country of origin. Or religion, as this #MuslimBan EO really seems to be about.
My belief in democracy & the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights takes priority over my work, hobby & general obsession into passwords and digital authentication. I have seen the worst of consequences happening to people being excluded for so many different reasons. Adding to the people I know that already has trouble getting a VISA to the US based on their origins, even more people I know have told me explicitly that going to Vegas just won't happen, period.
I am proud of what we have achieved together with BSidesLV. I am even more amazed & proud of the friendship, support & fun so many people have shown me while in Vegas. I sincerely hope I may return some day to the UNITED states, give you all a hug and get on with the program. We still need to protect the password. Probably more than ever before.

I have told Jeremi Gosney & BSidesLV staff that if they would still like to run the passwords track this year I'll accept it. There are Americans who cannot afford to go abroad. There are Americans that don't have a passport, so they cannot leave their country. A lot worse is that there are people in the US right now that consider the US their home, but if they leave they might not be allowed back in. Americans deserve the same rights to education, meetups, conferences & better password security as anyone else in the world.
I have already been contacted by people who would like to help out organizing PasswordsCon in either Mexico or Canada in July. While time is short, I still think it might be doable. If you, your organisation or company would be interested in sponsoring & helping out, please let me know as soon as possible. Contact information below.

For BSidesLV I wish you all the best of luck with the conference in July.
Thank you.
