Notes from the Field: Black Hat 2017

Posted by John Linkous on Jul 28, 2017

This week marked the annual descent of thousands of security professionals, hackers, security product vendors and journalists into 100-degree-plus weather in Las Vegas for the venerable Black Hat conference.  This week in Vegas always includes three significant security events: the community-minded B-Sides security conference early in the week, the deeply technical DefCon conference later in the week, and the most mainstream event – Black Hat – wedged in the middle.  All three events provide a forum for those involved in the security industry to get together and share exotic vulnerabilities and attack vectors, talk about the politics related to security (such as privacy and government monitoring), and in the case of Black Hat, see what tools and technologies vendors are coming up with to improve the security posture of organizations.
