The best of Black Hat: The consequential, the controversial, the canceled
For two decades, Black Hat has gained a reputation for demonstrations of some of the most cutting-edge research in information security as well as development and industry trends. The event has also had its share of controversy – sometimes enough to cause last-minute cancelations.
Launched in 1997 as a single conference in Las Vegas, Black Hat has gone international with annual events in the U.S., Europe and Asia. This year’s U.S. event – the 20th – at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, begins July 22 with four days of technical training, followed by the two-day main conference.
