Information security professionals from all over the world will be coming together at this year’s Black Hat USA 2019, hosted by Informa Tech. The event will be taking place on 3-8 August in Las Vegas. Black Hat promises to be a one-stop shop for the latest research, development, and trends in InfoSec.

Attendees will be treated to four days of technical training. After that, the two-day main conference will take place. The conference will feature briefings, arsenal, business hall, and more. As well as this, some of the most in-demand experts will be at hand to teach the courses. Visitors will also be able to take advantage of the skill building and community engagement opportunities.

There will also be a number of keynote speakers of varying backgrounds, including security engineers, team leaders, data scientists, and more. This includes Chloe Brown at Bugcrowd, Greg Caswell at Indeed, and Dr. Nicole Forsgren at Google Cloud.
