Black Hat USA
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Wednesday, November 27th 2019, or created by us. Black Hat is like a commercial wing of DEF CON. It is started (and then sold) by the same founder (Dark Tangent, aka Jeff Moss). Black Hat has global appeal and it functions throughout the world (Middle East, Asia, Europe, and the United States). Think of the Black Hat participants as being more corporate and the DEF CON crowd as being more “street” and stereotypically “hackerish”. This security conference provides attendees with security consulting, training, and briefings to corporations, government agencies, and hackers around the world. Black Hat gathers a variety of people interested in information security ranging from hackers, non-technical individuals, executives, and industry-leading security professionals. The conference takes place regularly in Las Vegas, Barcelona, London, Abu Dhabi. The conference has also been hosted in Amsterdam, Tokyo, and Washington, D.C. in the past. Join one of the largest hacking conferences in the world on August 1 – 6, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
