Press photographers are also required to adhere to this policy; Your press credentials is not a pass to break these rules.

Upon a first infraction, you will receive one warning from BSidesJax Staff. Upon a second infraction you will be asked to give up your device to BSidesJax Staff for the duration of the Con or to leave the Con with your device, your choice. You may return to the Con once you have deposited your device in a secure location, offsite.

There are several BSidesJax Staff who are commissioned to be taking pictures & otherwise document the event. They are aware of this policy and are not immune, except in cases where they have been requested to document activities, presentations, etc., for BSidesjax PR purposes.
