Black Hat - built by and for the global InfoSec community - returns to Las Vegas for its 19th year. This six day event begins with four days of intense Trainings for security practitioners of all levels (July 30 - August 2) followed by the two-day main event including over 100 independently selected Briefings, Business Hall, Arsenal, Pwnie Awards, and more (August 3-4).

Optiv is proud to participate in six sessions at Black Hat this year. Details below. 

Staying Connected, and Surviving, on the Black Hat Network
The Black Hat network is often the subject of quiet whispers, fear and sometimes laughter. In this session, Bart Stump, solutions engineer, will discuss what many security professionals believe to be one of the most hostile networks in the world. Attendees will learn what to expect while staying connected at Black Hat and tips to stay safe.
August 2, 5:00 p.m. - 5:20 p.m. | Mandalay Bay G | Day Zero

Advancing Your Career As A Security Pro
Security professionals are in one of the fastest-growing – and potentially lucrative – careers available today. The industry’s negative-unemployment market means many organizations compete for security experts’ services. In this panel session, Dawn-Marie Hutchinson, executive director office of the CISO, will join a discussion on how security professionals can take advantage of these opportunities and advance their careers.
August 3, 12:50 p.m. - 1:40 p.m. | Reef C | Career Track

SERPICO, the simple report writing collaboration tool, provides enterprise penetration testing teams a portable platform to ease report writing and generation. Pete Arzamendi, research scientist, returns to Black Hat to demonstrate new features of this open source tool, including new data imports and a bundled version for quicker reporting.
August 4, 10:00 a.m. - 11:50 p.m. | Palm Foyer, Level 3, Station 1 | Arsenal

BurpBuddy is an open source tool originally released in 2014. Arsenal 2016 will mark the release of version three, which offers a complete rewrite and provides a smorgasbord of new functionality. With BurpBuddy, pen testers can write their own plugins for Burp in any language they want. During this demo, Tom Steele, managing principal consultant, will discuss the functionality of the API and showcase examples written in various programming languages.
August 4, 12:00 p.m. - 1:50 p.m. | Palm Foyer, Level 3, Station 5 | Arsenal

Hiding a needle in a haystack is easier if the needle looks like hay. Join John Ventura, research practice manager, who will demonstrate NetNeedle, an open source tool developed for pen testers to provide encrypted control channels and chat sessions that are disguised to look like other common network activity. Originally written to demonstrate network-based steganography principals, this tool exploits presumptions about the nature of protocols that are largely ignored in a modern network.
August 4, 2:00 p.m. - 3:50 p.m. | Palm Foyer, Level 3, Station 6 | Arsenal

In this presentation, Bart Stump, solutions engineer, will show conference attendees what happens behind the scenes at Black Hat. Who's attacking who? What are they doing? And what makes it all tick.
