Cybersecurity and cybercrime are constantly spotlighted in today’s digitally connected businesses. The need for increased security is not only a necessity in helping maintain business operations as normal, but also in securing company and customer data, and thus, customer loyalty and trust.

For those of you out there who are ready to get the latest information, trends, and training, Black Hat 2022 provides exactly that opportunity! The hybrid in-person/virtual event will be held next month in Las Vegas and online, from August 6th to 11th.

What to expect at Black Hat 2022

At the event this year, worldwide experts will spend the first couple of days providing classes, labs, and overall training that are live and fully interactive. From August 6th to 9th, various class levels from beginner to advanced will be held throughout the day that cover tracks including:

  • AppSec
  • Crypto
  • Defence
  • Forensics
  • Hardware
  • ICS (Industrial Control Systems)
  • Malware
  • PenTesting
  • and more!

The main conference days, from August 10th to 11th, will have briefings, Arsenal showcases, and a business hall for networking.

Black Hat Briefings will provide attending computer security professionals with up-to-date information on security risks, research, and current trends covering topics such as critical information infrastructures, widely used enterprise computer systems, R&D, and more. While also touching on the issues facing public and private sectors and their potential solutions.

At the event, Arsenal will give tool demonstrations, as researchers and other community actors highlight innovative open-source products. Attendees also have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of the InfoSec world and connect with other experts in the field at the Business Hall.

To finish things off, there will also be parties and networking special events, although many require an RSVP.
