Black Hat USA 2019 Offers a Boatload of New Training Opportunities

Led by top infosec talent, these cutting-edge courses are an efficient way to get practical, hands-on training in everything from blockchain security to machine learning.

Black Hat USA returns to the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas this August, and it’s shaping up to be the best show to date.

Organizers are pleased to welcome an exciting array of new trainers this year, and invite you to begin perusing the lineup of 2- and 4-Day Trainings. Led by the information security industry's top talent, these cutting-edge courses are an efficient way to get practical, hands-on training in everything from blockchain security to machine learning.

An Introduction to Hacking Blockchain Applications and Smart Contracts,” for example, is a 2-day Training which offers an entry-level dive into state of the art methodologies for developing smart contracts for Blockchain enabled decentralized applications (DApps). Expect to focus on the Ethereum blockchain, Web3.0, and the Solidity language, as these are currently the most used platforms for building decentralized applications. You’ll walk away with new skills and new ways to identify (and exploit) the most common vulnerabilities on this platform.

For more advanced hardware work, check out the “Advanced Hardware Hacking - Hands-on Power Analysis and Glitching with the ChipWhisperer” 2-day Training course, which is all about side-channel power analysis for fun and profit. Trainees will use the open-source ChipWhisperer project for both hardware & software tools, meaning you can immediately take the knowledge learned in this course and apply it in real life. The course includes a ChipWhisperer-Lite for each student, too, so you’re going to walk away with both new skills and the actual hardware you used to build them. Don’t miss it!

If you want to go even deeper, hone in on the 4-day Trainings. “A Complete Practical Approach to Malware Analysis and Memory Forensics - 2019 Edition” does just what it says on the tin, giving you an introductory look at malware analysis, reverse engineering, Windows internals, and techniques to perform malware and rootkit investigations of real-world memory samples using the Volatility open-source advanced memory forensics framework. Expect hands-on training in the analysis and investigation of various real-world malware samples and infected memory images, including crimeware, malware, and rootkits.

By contrast, “Applied Data Science and Machine Learning for Cybersecurity” offers a more advanced 4-day Training experience. This interactive course will teach your how to use data science techniques to quickly manipulate and analyze network and security data and ultimately uncover valuable insights from this data. The course will cover the entire data science process from data preparation, feature engineering and selection, exploratory data analysis, data visualization, machine learning, model evaluation and optimization and, finally, implementing at scale — all with a focus on security-related problems and solutions.

Take a moment to peruse this year’s Black Hat USA Trainings lineup, which can be easily sorted to show you just 2-Day or 4-Day Trainings in accordance with your schedule.

Black Hat USA will return to the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas August 3-8, 2019. For more information on what’s happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.
