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. Presented by the brightest in the industry, the Briefings cover everything from critical information infrastructure to widely used enterprise computer systems to the latest InfoSec research & development and everything in between. These Briefings are vendor-neutral, allowing the presenters to speak candidly about the real problems and potential solutions across both the public and private sectors. The following timeslots are available: 25 and 50 minutes.


Black Hat does not accept product or vendor related pitches. If your talk is a thinly-veiled advertisement for a new product or service your company is offering, please do not apply.

Briefings: Traditional 25 and 50 minute Presentation Format

Workshops: 120 minute Hands-On Labs and Presentations
