Over the years, the Black Hat USA security conference has become one of the most significant events on the cybersecurity calendar. As Adam Shostack, a member of the Black Hat Review Board knows, some of the most prominent and infamous security research and attacks have been made public at Black Hat. From the talks to the panel discussions and the demonstration, much of what happens at the event makes national and international headlines and helps change perceptions and policy on cybersecurity.
For more than two decades, the Black Hat event has provided attendees with the latest information in security research, trends and developments in a vendor-neutral setting. The event strives to bring together some of the industry thought leaders and professionals who aspire to meet the needs of the security community and want to encourage collaboration among various actors.
Held annually since 1997, the Black Hat Briefings have grown from a single conference to a series of trainings and events that are held in Asia, Europe and the United States. The briefings are designed to help leading security researchers take the stage to share their findings with the community and collaborate in finding answers to a growing list of vulnerabilities.
