BlackHat USA 2018 kicks off in Las Vegas next week, the 21st year that the information security event has brought together thousands of cybersecurity professionals. BlackHat is always a unique event in that it devotes a heavier portion of its agenda to technical trainings, skill-building, and research briefings for practical cybersecurity learning, followed by a shorter main conference we typically encounter at a “trade show.” It’s also co-located with DEFCON, a hacker convention that takes place immediately following BlackHat – that’s always interesting.

The dramatic increase in attendees compared to prior years illustrates the…
