About The Executive Briefing Event

The third annual Black Hat Executive Briefing will take place on July 27, 2010, from 8:00 AM–5:30 PM at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada–one day prior to the main Black Hat Briefings.

Who Will Attend

One hundred executives from Global 2000 corporations and federal agencies are invited to attend a full day of high-level discussions about topics unique to Black Hat. Past attendees have included executives from the Air Force, Apple, AT&T, Barclays, Boeing, California, DoD, DHS, eBay, Facebook, FBI, Hersheys, IRS, ING, Microsoft, NASA, NSA, Schwab, Time Warner and Verizon.


The 2010 Executive Briefing will begin with an introduction from one of the highest-ranked US government officials, discussing the importance of cyber security to homeland security.

The morning sessions will preview the most important technical discussions planned for the main Black Hat Briefings. Lead by Jeff Moss, founder of Black Hat and DEFCON, these previews will enable executives to discuss the implications of the newest vulnerabilities and attacks with their peers and the actual researchers. Executives can then use this knowledge to prepare their teams ahead of time and direct their technical experts to the most important research being released.

The afternoon sessions will include a number of strategic discussions around the latest threats and long-term countermeasures to be taken into consideration.

After the Executive Briefing and Reception, executives are invited to mingle with speakers at the Black Hat Speaker Party in the Caesar’s Penthouse until 2:00 AM.
