What To Expect At Black Hat USA 2016 | AppSec Briefings

Surely at this stage the necessary travel plans are confirmed as July 30th is nearly upon us. Your destination must be Blackhat USA 2016 at the beautiful Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Las Vegas. If you haven’t already, register now, as trainings and sessions are filling fast.

Previously we brought you details of the Mobility, Microsoft and IoT Briefings taking place at this year’s event. Now Application Security takes her worthy place up-front on our showcase stage. Break a leg AppSec!

Blackhat’s skilfully-selected card of presenters will guide attendees through the meandering AppSec paths, whilst outlining problems affecting, and solutions available for, threats faced by the public and private sectors, affecting all corners of this cyber-threat box we all live in. I’ll be sure to pack my compass!

The Black Hat Briefings cover other topics including critical infrastructure security; enterprise systems and datacenter technologies; vulnerabilities targeting nearly every platform, operating system, and device imaginable; and the latest in research and development—chances are, there’s something here you haven’t thought about yet. If you have we’d love to know!
