The Black Hat Briefings brings together a unique mix in security: the best minds from government agencies and global corporations with the most respected independent researchers and hackers. These forums take place regularly in Las Vegas, Amsterdam, Tokyo, and Washington D.C.. The Black Hat Briefings USA has grown to over 2500 technically advanced attendees. Briefings in Europe and Asia host over 250 attendees each. The opportunity to network with peers and leading-edge practitioners is unique. Topics are diverse and range from RFID Security, Windows Vista Exploits, Forensics and Anti-Forensics, Root-Kits, Zero Day Vulnerabilities, Anomaly Detection, Hardware Hacking and much more. Topics can also apply to the offensive initiatives of a group such as a pen test team or vulnerability researchers. Black Hat Training provides hands-on experience of the newest security threats and countermeasures. Courses include application security, assessment methodologies, computer forensics, root-kit technology, software vulnerability analysis, managerial and systems administration. Black Hat has trained security experts from a large and diverse range of government and corporate organizations. Training courses often precede our Briefings in Las Vegas, Amsterdam, Tokyo and Washington D.C., so there are plenty of chances to attend during the year.
