Bumper Crop of New Briefings Added for Black Hat USA
Among the 50+ new Briefings confirmed for this August event are a deep dive into the Apple T2 chip and a pile of lessons learned from the Equifax and Home Depot breaches.
This summer Black Hat USA is coming to Las Vegas with a bumper crop of practical Trainings, Briefings, and other unique opportunities to get ahead of today's most pressing cybersecurity threats.
To give you a taste of what's in store, let's highlight some of the most exciting new Briefings that have been lined up for this year's event.
Trust and Transformation: The Post Breach Journey is a rare chance to learn all about what happened inside one of the biggest security breaches in modern memory, from someone who was there. Speaker Jamil Farshchi helped rebuild (among others) the cybersecurity systems of both The Home Depot and Equifax after their devastating data breaches in 2014 and 2017, and at Black Hat USA he'll share vital lessons learned about issues like workplace culture, controls and compliance.
Inside The Apple T2 offers you a deep dive into the inner workings of Apple's T2 security chip, going way beyond the limited technical details the company has made public up to now. In addition, the speakers will share their methodology along with the tools they developed and released in order to help others better understand (and research) the T2 system.
In Information Security in the Public Interest cybersecurity luminary Bruce Schneier will show you why computer security is now, fundamentally, a public policy issue. While an understanding of the technology involved is fundamental to crafting good policy, there is little involvement of technologists in policy discussions. This is not sustainable. Schneier will show you why it's so important to have public interest technologists, and present a way forward for both you and the industry as a whole.

Black Hat USA will return to the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas August 3-8, 2019. For more information on what's happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.
