Virtual Black Hat USA Offers Unparalleled Access to Expert Security Insights

Attendees can look forward to the same high-quality Briefings and Trainings from the comfort of their own desk.

Black Hat organizers are moving forward with plans to host a virtual event for this year’s Black Hat USA, offering attendees the same high-quality Briefings and Trainings from the comfort of their own desk.

Taking place August 1-6, this year's virtual Black Hat USA will offer a robust lineup of content, including nearly 80 Trainings, 90 Briefings, networking opportunities, community and sponsored programming, the Arsenal program, PWNIE Awards, CISO Summit, and a virtual Business Hall that’s free to access.

Special efforts are being made to ensure that this remarkable lineup of Briefings and Trainings are delivered effectively in a format that today’s most influential researchers and professionals can discuss a wide range of topics ranginng fromcyber-physical systems research to election security and mobile vulnerabilities.

For example, Whispers Among the Stars: A Practical Look at Perpetrating (and Preventing) Satellite Eavesdropping Attacks offers an experimental look at satellite broadband communications across land, air and sea by which attackers can use $300 of home television equipment to spy from thousands of miles away.

In Election Security: Securing America’s Future, the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) will outline how the U.S. is preparing to run a secure U.S. 2020 election in the midst of COVID-19.

Another not-to-be-missed presentation: Stealthily Access Your Android Phones: Bypass the Bluetooth Authentication, which details a zero-day vulnerability that can bypass Android’s Bluetooth authentication process to gain profile access and steal sensitive information.

Register now for this year’s fully virtual Black Hat USA, scheduled August 1-6, and get more information about the event on the Black Hat website.
