We report a lot on Information Security Conference – here’s our list for 2013, and this year’s major event: Black Hat 2013 in Vegas is underway! For those that are completely new to IT security, Black Hat is huge. From its inception in 1997, Black Hat has evolved into a global conference series with annual events in Abu Dhabi, Barcelona, Las Vegas and Washington DC. In short, it is a conference for the world’s best security researchers and educators.
Little bit of trivia for you, Black Hat was founded by Jeff Moss, who also founded DEFCON.
We love these events and are heart-broken not to attend this year, in fact the real reason we can’t attend is our allegiance to our audience! We have organized a series of training events that need our attention that are slap in the middle of Black Hat 2013.
This years event is broken down as follows:
We’ve listed the Black Hat 2013 Arsenal talks below. We like the Arsenal talks the most, since a lot of our own Hacker Hotshot guests have presented their own security tools. Our own examples include: PunkSpider, Sploitego, Scapy, Scylla and 1.0 Alpha, and ThreadFix.

Barnaby Jack RIP
We just want to take this opportunity to send our condolences to the family of Barnaby Jack who has died this week. Barnaby was scheduled to speak at this years Black Hat.
For those that don’t known, Barnaby Jack hacked ATM’s! Watch this video and you’ll see what we mean – really unbelievable and real magic! Seriously, this is what it’s all about.
His work forced banks to secure their machines and he sparked safety improvements in medical devices since he demonstrated how to hack into pacemakers. He was only 35 and the cause of his death is unknown. Again, our condolences to his family and close friends and he will be sorely missed.
Are you at Black Hat? Please let us know what you enjoyed the most and why, we’d love to hear from you.
