Black Hat DC 2011 // press registration
Hyatt Regency Crystal City • Jan 16 - 19
Any member of the broadcast, print and Internet media who can prove they work for an organization or publication that covers computer security on a regular basis can apply for a free press pass.
We welcome anyone to apply for press credentials but reserve the right to deny you a pass. As such, please be prepared to show us copies of your articles either at your publication's Web site or on the publication's masthead should we request it.
At the show, please be able to present a business card, and government issued picture id, article on your organization's masthead and contact information for your assignment editor should we need it to validate your credentials before issuing you a pass.
During the conference we will provide a press room with Internet access and electrical outlets for laptop computers. If you need a separate room for filming interviews, please request it in advance in the comments section. Let us know if there are any other special needs such as speakers you want to interview when you arrive or other items such as computer access to file stories or a fax machine.
- Press registration is usually granted for the Briefings only.
- Press passes for Training are rare, determined on a case by case basis upon request.
Please make a point to pre-register. Should you attempt to attain credentials on-site, we cannot guarantee you will qualify and must bring all information in the above paragraph.
