All of the Amazing Things Trustwave Has in Store at Black Hat USA 2016

It is the most wonderful time of the year - when information security professionals and enthusiasts from around the world converge on Las Vegas for the annual hacker proceedings known as Black Hat (and DEFCON following right after).

And Trustwave wouldn't miss it for the world.

We'll be out in force at the 19th annual Black Hat USA show, to be held next week at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Occupying Booth 1148 and donning our sharp new Trustwave SpiderLabs T-shirts, our crew will be nourishing you, filling your swag bags and - most importantly of all - informing and educating you on the latest cybercrime trends that are affecting your job on a daily basis.

Our lineup of speakers has never been more impressive and comprehensive, and we encourage you to visit our booth to check out this dazzling array of security research rock stars who will pumping the expo floor with valuable information and insight you can put into use at your organization. (The full schedule is below).

In addition, we'll be hosting on-demand demonstrations of our Managed Security Testing, DbProtect and App Scanner solutions - so if you're in the market for improving your ability to sniff out vulnerabilities across your databases, networks and applications, be sure to come by and request a pressure-free walkthrough of the technology.

We also know that Black Hat is very much a work-hard, play-hard type of event. With that in mind, we'll have you covered with ice cold water, coffee, energy drinks, breakfast burritos and sliders to keep you on your toes. And you may walk away with more than a quenched thirst and full stomach, as we'll be giving away everything from Trustwave SpiderLabs-themed tees, koozies and water bottles to drones, Bluetooth speakers, and 3-D virtualizers to a hoverboard.

If you can't make it out, be sure to follow our social media channels, especially Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, where we will be sharing the most interesting sights and sounds from show.
