Black Hat USA and DefCon: Finding Security Risks in All the Things

eWeek - August 1, 2016

No week in the information security calendar is quite like this one, with the annual Black Hat USA and DefCon security conferences descending on Las Vegas. The mythos of the two security conferences runs deep across more than two decades as the places where new research is revealed and zero-day exploits are announced, and the 2016 events are no exception.

While the focus of Black Hat USA, which has its briefings on Aug. 3 and 4 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, is largely on new issues, the event kicks off with a keynote address from security researcher Dan Kaminsky that will likely reminisce about one of the largest issues ever revealed at a Black Hat event.
