Dark Reading Radio at Black Hat 2016: 2 Shows, 4 #BHUSA Presenters

Even if you can't physically be at Black Hat USA 2016, Dark Reading offers a virtual alternative to engage with presenters about hot show topics and trends.

Couldn’t make the trip? Not to worry. Dark Reading editors over the last few weeks have interviewed key Black Hat figures and presenters to give you a taste of the show in two pre-recorded Dark Reading Radio episodes to be broadcast Wednesday Aug 3 and Thursday Aug 4.

Here’s the lineup:

Dark Reading Radio at Black Hat 2016, Episode 1:
Date/Time: Wednesday, August 03, 2016, 1:00 p.m. New York / 10:00 a.m. Las Vegas
Guests: Black Hat General Manager Steve Wylie & Bugcrowd Senior Director of Researcher Operations Kymberlee Price

In this episode, Editor In Chief Tim Wilson talks with Black Hat General Manager Steve Wylie about the many programs and sessions being offered at this week’s Black Hat USA conference, highlighting some of the show’s most important keynote adresses, hot topics in the briefings, and new programs built around security careers and startup companies. He also tells Tim what makes Black Hat a different type of information security event – from in-depth training to social functions that bring security pros together.

In the second segment of the radio show, Kymberlee Price, give yours truly a behind the scenes look at how to build a security incident response team using crowd sourcing. Kymberlee is senior director of researcher operations at Bugcrowd. She’ll be offering some takeaways and tips from her Black Hat 16 briefing Building a Product Security Incident Response Team: Learnings from the Hivemind, which she is presenting this week at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Dark Reading Radio at Black Hat 2016, Episode 2
Date/Time: Thursday, August 04, 2016, 1:00 p.m. New York / 10:00 a.m. Las Vegas
Guests:  Wesley McGrew, Director of Cyber Operations at Horne Cyber & Konstantin Berlin, Senior Research Engineer at Invincea Labs

In this special episode of Dark Reading Radio, Executive Editor Kelly Jackson Higgins talks to Wesley McGrew, director of cyber operations at Horne Cyber, about his research on hacking penetration testers, "Secure Penetration Testing Operations: Demonstrated Weaknesses In Learning Material And Tools." McGrew over the past few years has been examining vulnerabilities and security weaknesses in penetration testing tools, processes, and practices, and will release his homegrown Snagterpreter tool at Black Hat that allows an attacker to hijack, monitor, and alter traffic between the pen tester and his or her target/client.

Capping things off, is Sara Peters interview with Konstantin Berlin, senior research engineer at Invincea Labs. Berlin hones in one of the key cybersecurity promises of machine learning (particularly "deep learning") for security analysis, with a focus on how to take give organizations more information about unfamiliar code than simply "it's benign" or "it's malicious." His talk is, "An AI Approach To Malware Similarity Analysis: Mapping The Malware Genome with a Deep Neural Network."

Hope you to see you in the radio studio on Wednesday and Thursday. And if you can't make it this week, you can view the show in our archives at your convenience. (Registration is Required.)
