I'm sad to say it, but I won't be going to Las Vegas in a couple weeks
for Black Hat, DefCon or B-Sides. There's simply too much happening on
the home front for me to break away this year.
I'll feel left out, for sure. When my security associates start tweeting
about hanging out in a cigar bar or taking in some awe-inspiring hacking
sessions, I'll be jealous. Really jealous. Fortunately, CSO will have
troops on the scene to cover all the action.
But that won't stop me from offering a few survival tips, though. After
all, I've still been to many Black Hat and B-Sides events. The most
recent B-Sides events I attended were in San Francisco and Boston.
And so, for the first-time attendee, I offer the following advice based
on my past experiences:
Attend Black Hat USA 2010, hosted at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada
July 24-29th, offering over 60 training sessions and 11 tracks of Briefings
from security industry elite. To sign up visit http://www.blackhat.com
