Organizers of Black Hat USA 2013 are giving a final reminder that today, Friday, May 31st, is the final day for early registration for the Black Hat USA 2013 show, coming to Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas in late July. Organizers are expecting at least 6,500 security industry professionals at the exclusive gathering July 27th through August 1st, as the industry gathers for the most intensely technical and relevant global information security event in the world.

As part of the two-day Briefings part of the event, organizers are excited to welcome General Keith Alexander -- Commander, U.S. Cyber Command/Director, National Security Agency/Chief, Central Security Service (NSA/CSS) -- presenting the Day One keynote address. The following day, they'll introduce Brian Muirhead - Chief Engineer, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and former Chief Architect for both NASA's Constellation program and the Mars Pathfinder Mission, who will present the Day Two keynote with an inspirational talk called "Take Risk, Don't Fail."
Compelling, timely, and relevant content is the lifeblood of Black Hat USA 2013 -- and once again, this show is where the absolute latest attack and defense research is released. Organizers have an impressive lineup of editorial, knowledge-transfer oriented Briefings -- with more than 50 highly technical presentations already announced, and even more on the way. And prior to the Briefings, Black Hat also provides a comprehensive roster of some of the most rigorous Training classes to be found anywhere in the InfoSec space. In fact, more than 40 percent of the Trainings offered are exclusive to Black Hat USA 2013 and will be available nowhere else this year.
Elsewhere, Black Hat USA 2013 is also pleased to once again host Arsenal--a Tool/Demo area showcasing the work of independent researchers and the open-source community. Organizers are also introducing a number of sponsored workshops for the first time, with in-depth talks from top companies in the space and, of course, the Sponsor Hall, which brings together the most important solutions providers in the business. Oh, and there might be a party or two thrown by companies in the space to help delegates unwind after the intense focus of each day.
