Black Hat USA 2019 is just around the corner! Selecting which sessions to attend from among the conference’s jam-packed catalog of training sessions, panels and briefings can be a daunting task without a clear strategy. In the run-up to every conference, we compile a list of the most engaging content and identify the most compelling cybersecurity trends highlighted in the agenda.
We have seen a telling shift in emphasis between the 2018 and 2019 Black Hat USA agendas, as the focus moves away from new attack vectors to devising improved approaches to closing long-standing security gaps. Recent high-profile breaches attributed to existing security gaps, such as those affecting Facebook, First America, and Quest Diagnostics, have inspired a return to security basics.
