BlackHat Abu Dhabi: December 12th

Henry Dalziel | Information Security Conferences, Latest InfoSec News | December 2, 2012

Black Hat Abu Dhabi is happening next week!

The training will be taking place prior to the main event, rather in the same format as Hacker Halted if you are familiar with that, and the dates for that are December 12th to the 13th. The briefings will follow from the 14th to the 15th.

Kinda expensive but 100% worth it – entrance and training starts from $1,095 upto $1,795 depending when you bought the tickets and/ or training.

This is the second time that Black Hat has been in Abu Dhabi. Hardly suprising considering the popularity of Information Security in the Middle East. We ran an event with mile2 back in February of this year (2012) and were pretty amazed at the amount of InfoSec professionals that signed up from the Middle East, especially UAE, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

As usual the Middle Eastern security conference will include a full contingent of selected trainings and three tracks of talks over four days.

The Call for Papers has expired now.

Here is an outline of the Information Security professionals speaking:

Justin Searle: Assessing and Exploiting Web Applications with Samurai-WTF
Saumil Udayan Shah & S.K. Chong: The Exploit Laboratory
MANDIANT: Incident Response: Black Hat Edition by MANDIANT
Foundstone: Malware Forensics & Incident Response
