There is arguably no better agent for shaping the future of the security industry than the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas. With more than 15,000 attendees, comprised of everyone from eccentric security researchers to earnest CEOS, the annual show in the desert offers a powerful combination of groundbreaking research presentations and abundant networking opportunities, making the convention among the most circled dates on the security professional's calendar.
Aside from the unique opportunity that the show presents for directly reaching those in the security field - for example, during the keynote, Facebook CSO Alex Stamos called for more empathy and inclusion in the industry - vendors also make the most of the massive gathering. The number of security providers exhibiting has grown exponentially over the years, and the expo floor has developed into a destination of its own. Companies like Trustwave use Black Hat as an opportunity to connect their messages to the educational content being delivered in the track sessions.
