Should have asked at event
The keynote presentation walked through various types of cyber attackers.  Regarding "nation state warriors" (the well-funded and  disciplined  state-sponsored organizations), I wish I had asked if there were any data or personal observations concerning these teams and their leveraging the information, best practices and recommendations provided by events such as this?  The obvious assumption is that they (the nation-state teams), view what these experts' advise, as valuable intelligence on their "enemy's" position, doctrine, effectiveness and initiatives.

As there's no way to keep those eyes and ears from all such resources, I wonder if there's a general philosophy guiding our advisor's guidance?  Some advice is advisable, even when you know the black hats are paying as much or more attention than John Q. Public (promoting better passwords, no more helps cyber criminals than telling people not to leave their keys on the hood of their car is a boon to car thieves). 

I do wonder if anyone has looked at the issue of categorizing types of cyber security data and recommendations, based on assessments as to who benefits more from disclosure: the black hats or the ones we want to protect?

Content rich, with high quality presentations
Though I couldn't devote the day to attending this event; what I did catch was impressive.  As the content and resources will be available on-demand, I'll review the parts I was able to see, and check out the parts I missed.  I often get more out of the replay, than real-time.  As it should be, with what is intended to be, and is, thought provoking.  

Playing catch-up means missing out on active participation; but still a valuable resource.  The presenters DR lines up are exceptional.  Their knowledge, experience and presentation skills are first rate. 

Highly recommended.
