InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
We’d be surprised if you work in Cybersecurity (or at least are interested in the InfoSec Industry) and have never heard of Black Hat.
Founded by the same person that started DEF CON (Jeff Moss) Black Hat is one of the ‘must-attend’ events in the Information Security Conference calendar.
We are avid fans of Black Hat and for the last three years we’ve placed it in our Top Ten events list here.
What’s the difference between Black Hat and DEF CON?
Simple. DEF CON is a ‘hacker-con’ and is dedicated to providing the ‘real’ hacking community with a full-on immersed hacking conference. Black Hat is more corporate.
