Omdia Cybersecurity Accelerator Analysts to Take Part in Black Hat USA 2020

Analysts will participate in the Black Hat Briefings, taking place Aug. 4-6, discussing cybersecurity research, offering exclusive video presentations, and meeting with vendors and attendees.

Omdia, the global research powerhouse within Informa Tech, is pleased to partner once again with the Black Hat global security event series through its participation in Black Hat USA 2020.

Black Hat USA 2020 will be a fully virtual event for its 23rd year. It is the world's leading information security event, providing attendees with cutting edge security research, technological developments, and information security industry trends.

Analysts from Omdia's Cybersecurity Accelerator research group will participate in the event during the Black Hat Briefings seminar series, taking place Aug. 4-6. Omdia analysts participating in the event will include:

·         Maxine Holt, Senior Research Director

·         Jeff Wilson, Chief Analyst

·         Rik Turner, Principal Analyst

·         Tanner Johnson, Senior Analyst (IoT Security)

·         Eric Parizo, Senior Analyst (SecOps, Infrastructure)

·         Alan Rodger, Senior Analyst (GRC, Security Management)

·         Don Tait, Senior Analyst (Identity, Authentication, and Access)

Omdia analysts will lead two briefings during the event.

In a talk titled, "State of the cybersecurity technology market in the COVID-19 era,"Chief Analyst Jeff Wilson will tackle how malicious hackers have already taken advantage of the pandemic to launch new attacks. This session will focus on technologies, architectures, and solutions that companies can use to securely connect and protect users, data, and infrastructure during the pandemic, and after it passes.

Meanwhile, Senior Research Director Maxine Holt will discuss "Organizational approaches to cybersecurity complexity." This session will define the Office of the CISO, the responsibilities that it encompasses -- including technology and other security controls -- and offer suggestions as to how organizations of all sizes can begin to bring some order to this crucial function.

In addition, Omdia Cybersecurity Accelerator analysts will be accessible throughout the event by visiting the Omdia virtual booth in the Business Hall.

At the Omdia virtual booth, attendees can learn about Omdia's history, mission, and research objectives, as well as view exclusive video content created by the Cybersecurity Accelerator analysts.

Visitors to the Omdia virtual booth also will have the opportunity to meet with an Omdia analyst in a 1-on-1 virtual setting. Attendees may request an appointment on a first-come first-serve basis.
