About Black Hat
The Black Hat Briefings brings together a unique mix in security: the
best minds from government agencies and global corporations with the
most respected independent researchers and hackers. These forums take
place regularly in Las Vegas, Amsterdam, Tokyo, and Washington D.C. The
opportunity to network with peers and leading-edge practitioners is
unique. Topics are diverse and range from RFID Security, Windows Vista
Exploits, Forensics and Anti-Forensics, Root-Kits, Zero Day
Vulnerabilities, Anomaly Detection, Hardware Hacking and much more.
Topics can also apply to the offensive initiatives of a group such as a
pen test team or vulnerability researchers.
Black Hat Training provides hands-on experience of the newest security
threats and countermeasures. Courses include application security,
assessment methodologies, computer forensics, root-kit technology,
software vulnerability analysis, managerial and systems administration.
Black Hat has trained security experts from a large and diverse range of
government and corporate organizations. Training courses often precede
our Briefings in Las Vegas, Amsterdam, Tokyo and Washington D.C., so
there are plenty of chances to attend during the year.
Black Hat differentiates itself by working at many levels within the
corporate, security and computer underground communities. This unmatched
informational reach enables Black Hat to be continuously aware of the
newest vulnerabilities, defense mechanisms, and industry trends. As
technology advancements occur at rates that make existing security
practices outdated, Black Hat Think Tank research provides a vision into
future security practices by identifying industry trends before they
