Black Hat Announces First Ever West Coast Trainings Event

Trainings include many of the most popular courses from Black Hat's events

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Black Hat, the world's leading family of information security events, announced the first ever West Coast Trainings. Over the course of four days, the security community's brightest researchers will unleash highly technical, hands-on Training courses to attendees in downtown Seattle, Washington. These Trainings include many of the most popular courses from Black Hat's events, as well as several new sessions on today's latest research and intelligence. The event will take place December 9 - 12, 2013, at the Washington State Convention Center. For more information and to register, please visit http://www.blackhat.com/wc-13/.

"At the core, Black Hat's mission is to encourage growth for information security enthusiasts at all levels in their professional careers," explained Trey Ford, General Manager, Black Hat. "These Trainings are not for the faint of heart and offer an unprecedented opportunity for hands-on learning with some of the best in our community."

Some highlights of the upcoming West Coast Trainings include:

-- Advanced C/C++ Source-Code-Analysis: Leaf SR will teach students how to dive into large C/C++ source code projects to find exploitable memory corruption vulnerabilities armed with nothing more than a text editor. -- Advanced OSINT Target Profiling AKA OSINT Target Profiling Like a Pro: Shane MacDougall of JL Bond Consulting, will outline a gamut of tools, websites, and procedures that every penetration tester/attacker should have in their toolkit, while showing that proper profiling can yield a huge lift for the attacker, all without sending a single packet to the target network. -- Hands-On Hardware Hacking and Reverse Engineering: Joe Grand of Grand Idea Studio, Inc., will teach hardware hacking and reverse engineering techniques commonly used against hardware products, including proper use of tools, circuit board analysis, embedded security and more. -- Pentesting with Kali Linux: Offensive Security, the team behind Kali, has re-written this course from the ground up to reflect the most modern and effective techniques that all penetration testers need to know. -- The Exploit Laboratory: Red Team: Saumil Shah will provide participants a hands-on approach to exploiting modern day operating systems, bringing students up to speed on the complexities of the exploit writing required. As with all popular Black Hat courses, the West Coast Trainings will undoubtedly fill up quickly, as they were selected due to the high demand for their content. Be sure to reserve a spot in the Training course(s) of your choice while they are still available. You can find the full list of Trainings available here.
