"We couldn't be more thrilled about returning to Asia in 2014," explained Trey Ford, General Manager, Black Hat. "Black Hat held its first event in Singapore back in 2000, and has watched the information security community grow into an industrial powerhouse. After three great years in Abu Dhabi, we're excited to gather the industry's best in beautiful Singapore."
Starting the week with hands-on Training courses (March 25-26), attendees have the option to register for individual technical deep-dives on topics ranging from the latest in penetration testing to exploiting web applications and even defending and building SCADA systems. Industry and subject matter experts from all over the world will teach these courses in an effort to help define and defend tomorrow's information security landscape.

Following the two days of Trainings, internationally leading security researchers will take the stage to share their latest work and exploits with attendees through Black Hat's esteemed Briefings (March 27-28). The Black Hat Briefings were created more than 16 years ago to provide computer security professionals a place to learn the very latest in information security risks, research and trends.
