What a whirlwind of a week! Black Hat was an outstanding success! It was so great to see the community again and just as sad to see everyone go home at week's end.

Black Hat would like to extend a hearty round of thanks to the hackers, researchers, journalists, governmental officials, authors, professors, and general troublemakers that made up this year's presenters. Without their massive efforts and support of the security community, Black Hat would cease to exist.

The content this year was clearly in a league of its own. There was so much great stuff it was physically impossible to see it all. Luckily, we were able to get a few of the unprocessed videos from the videographer, Source of Knowledge. We will post more to the Black Hat USA 2012 Archive page as they become available.
