Media Registration

Pre-registration for a media pass has now closed.
Please contact Heather Donner if you would like to register.

Required Credentials for a Media Pass

Please note: Media/analyst badges allow access to the Briefings, Business Hall, Arsenal Program, Community Programs, and Sponsored Sessions. It also includes Q&A opportunities with researchers and on-demand access to all Briefings after the event.

To qualify for a complementary media pass, applicants must cover the information security or technology industry on a regular basis and present bylined articles or reports published within the past 6 months. Publishers, marketing/PR professionals and other non-media titles will not be accepted. Private consultants paid by an individual company are not eligible for a media pass and should request a pass from the sponsoring company. Media credentials granted for previous Informa events do not guarantee a media pass to Black Hat USA - applications will be individually reviewed for each event.

Public Relations Support

The Black Hat PR team is here to support you as you plan your coverage of the event. If you'd like to be connected with a speaker, sponsor, or event representative for interview opportunities, please contact and we will assist you.
