Blocking Poisonous Cyber Attacks with Dell Security at Black Hat USA 2013

Next week, we will be at Black Hat USA 2013 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas from July 27 to August 1 where the world’s brightest and best thinkers in security join forces to define tomorrow’s information security landscape. This is promising to be the largest hacker and security research conference ever to date. Dell’s Security Solutions and Threat Research Services will be showcased in the center of the Expo floor in booth #421. The week kicks off with deep-dive technical trainings and briefings to learn the behaviors of the constantly evolving and sophisticated cyber espionage attacking networks today. The Expo is from Wednesday, July 31 to Thursday, August 1.

What makes Black Hat 2013 intriguing?

Attendees will hear from keynote speakers General Keith B Alexander, the Commander, U.S. Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM), Director, National Security Agency/Chief, Central Security Service (NSA/CSS), and Brian Muirhead, chief engineer, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. In addition, there will people on the frontlines tackling cyberattacks hitting organizations, and these pen testers and research experts have training and briefing sessions. Penetration testers from around the world come together to solve the myriad of disguises malware, trojans and exploits take to infect networks. You can find a good preview in Dark Reading this week that explores the various methods that top researchers will detail in their sessions.
