Black Hat USA’s New Micro Summits Deliver Focused, Practical Security InsightsThis year Black Hat USA is introducing special half-day programs focused on important topics that combine subject matter expertise with networking opportunities.
There’s something new debuting at Black Hat USA in Las Vegas this August: Micro Summits that are accessible to anyone with a Briefings Pass, and can be attended alongside the full lineup of Briefings at Black Hat USA. At each Micro Summit you’ll have the opportunity to learn from cybersecurity experts and connect with fellow attendees, speakers, and industry leaders to better understand critical issues and solutions.
For example, on Wednesday, August 3, you’ll have the chance to check out a special Micro Summit on cyber insurance. Chaired by experienced hacker Jeremiah Grossman, this is a great opportunity to learn what cyber-insurance policies cover and don’t cover; how claims are made, which are paid vs denied, and how carriers influence what security controls their clients implement.
Thursday August 4, there will be a special Bug Bounty Micro Summit which will quickly bring you up to speed on the culture and business of bug bounties. Chaired by open source security veteran Kymberlee Price, you will learn strategies and best practices for setting up and running an effective bounty program that protects your customers and improves your product quality.
Black Hat USA returns 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.
